STEM Women on G+166,148Join us for a STEM Women HOA panel discussion as we speak to Professor @114601143134471609087, Dr @115524304992150028865 and Dr @101757560980174712178 about being STEM Parents. We will discuss how our panellists support and encourage their children in STEM Education through pre-school, high school and college. They will share their insights with us as we talk about the challenges and rewards that come with encouraging girls to pursue a STEM career someday! This HOA will be hosted by Dr @108510686109338749229  and Dr @110756968351492254645  and you can tune in on Sunday May 11th at 2.30 PM PDT/ 10.30 PM BST (UK).

Scientific American editor Michael Moyer will host a 30-minute conversation at noon EDT to explore this question with David H. Freedman, journalist and author of "Wrong: Why Experts Keep Failing Us—And How to Know When Not to Trust Them." Join in and let us know what questions you'd like us to address.

Researchers on the team of Dr. Antoine Adamantidis identified a precise causal link between neuronal activity in the lateral hypothalamus (LH) and the state of REM sleep. 

Using optogenetics, they were able to induce REM sleep in mice and modulate the duration of this sleep phase by activating the neuronal network in this area of the brain.

SCIENCE recently published a special issue titled the Aging Brain.

One of the articles titled "Starting Young" reviews a study in Scotland that looked at predictors of cognition in older adults - including an IQ test the participants took when they were 11 years old! The study investigated a myriad of predictors - cognitive tests, genetics, brain scans, lifestyle, & health, but one predictor consistently stands out. --- Intelligence at 11 years old ---

Let's make sure our little ones will have great brain health in old age by ensuring they have activities and puzzles to stretch their minds now!

Decision trees are another example of a machine learning algorithm based on natural ideas from real life, but where the geometric interpretation leads to a very different perspective. Actually, from the geometric picture it's hard to understand why they would work will. But many people say they're effective on certain types of data sets.

A new study finds that a protein known as "klotho" correlates with improved thinking and memory skills - regardless of a person's age or sex, or even if they have Alzheimer's.

"Klotho is the name of a Greek mythological goddess of fate, 'who spins the thread of life.' People who have one copy of a variant, or form, of the KLOTHO gene, called KL-VS, tend to live longer and have lower chances of suffering a stroke whereas people who have two copies may live shorter lives and have a higher risk of stroke. In this study, the investigators found that people who had one copy of the KL-VS variant performed better on a battery of cognitive tests than subjects who did not have it, regardless of age, sex or the presence of the apolipoprotein 4 gene, the main genetic risk factor for Alzheimer's disease."

"The scientists joined old and young mice for five weeks and then examined them. The muscles of the old mice had healed about as quickly as those of the young mice... In addition, the old mice had grown new liver cells at a youthful rate.  The young mice, on the other hand, had effectively grown prematurely old. Their muscles had healed more slowly, and their stem cells had not turned into new cells as quickly as they had before the procedure."

"My typical patient has at least three chronic conditions, such as Alzheimer’s, heart failure and diabetes, plus numerous geriatric syndromes: falls, incontinence, depression and pain, to name a few. These patients come clutching lengthy medication lists or shopping bags filled with pill bottles. The drugs they take can interact badly, and they carry a heightened risk of dangerous side effects for older patients because of physiologic changes that come with aging, such as reduced kidney function. The medications are prescribed by a legion of doctors who often fail to communicate with each other."
