Ageing: WHO Statement

Aloyzio AchuttiemAMICOR - 0 seconds ago
From: Ilia Stambler Through Claudio Schuftan In response to the MMI/PHM comment on the WHO Global Strategy and Action Plan on Aging and Health, one must fully agree with the MMI and PHM emphasis on the need to improve social protection for the elderly, and against commercialization of aging care. Yet one must regret the statement “Ageing is a normal process in any person’s life. Yet it is approached as if it were a disease, thus unnecessarily medicalising a natural process.” Yes, it is a normal and natural degenerative process that brings about a lot of agi... mais »

wolf howling shutterstock 24571180
[image: wolf howling shutterstock 24571180] Wolves’ Calls Provide Clues to Birth of Human Speech They’re not just howling at the moon. Researcher Holly Root-Gutteridge and a group of scientists have created the world’s most comprehensive collection of canine vocalization recordings, culling sounds from the wild, zoos and even YouTube dog videos. The result? They still don’t know the meanings of wolves’ howls, but different breeds have “cultural” characteristics across continents and, like musicians, some are influenced by the sounds of others. Their research may help illuminate what s... mais »

New Discovery From the Molecular Machinery for Depression and Addiction NEUROSCIENCE NEWSMAY 28, 2016 *Summary: New discovery could provide new opportunities for the treatment of depression and addiction. **Source: Aarhus University.* *When nerve cells have to communicate with each other in our brains, it involves release of small signal molecules, the so-called neurotransmitters, which act as chemical messengers in specific points of contact between nerve cells, called synapses. Here the released neurotransmitter is bound and registered by receptors at the surface of the receiving n... mais »

240 DAILY NEWS 25 May 2016 Alzheimer’s may be caused by brain’s sticky defence against bugs [image: Plaques in the brain are behind Alzheimer's] Plaques in the brain are behind Alzheimer’s Juan Gaertner/Science Photo Library By Anil Ananthaswamy It’s a double-edged sword. The protein plaques in the brain associated with Alzheimer’s disease could be created as our immune system fights off invading microbes. Alzheimer’s disease has long been linked to the accumulation of sticky plaques of beta-amyloid proteins in the brain, but their function – if any – has remained unclear.

Ray Kurzweil has made a name for himself for making outlandish technology forecasts, many of which have proven accurate. Here, we summarize some of his predictions that could have the largest implications on medicine. Ray Kurzweil’s initial claim to fame was his inventions — including the flatbed scanner, the first print-to-speech converter for the blind, and a groundbreaking music synthesizer .
