British scientists make giant leap in Alzheimer's fight that could spare 100,000 sufferers every year
British scientists have made the biggest breakthrough for more than 15 years in the fight against Alzheimer's.

It could cut the rate of new cases by a fifth - 100,000 a year in the UK alone. British and French teams have identified rogue genes responsible for one in five cases of the disease. The search is now on for drugs to combat them. picked by Bingo 4 months ago

 Neuroscientists find brain region responsible for our sense of personal space
Neuroscientists find brain region responsible for our sense of personal space
The structure, the amygdala—a pair of almond-shaped regions located in the medial temporal lobes—was previously known to process strong negative emotions, such as anger and fear, and is considered the seat of emotion in the brain. However, it had never been linked rigorously to real-life human social interaction. picked by kakana 4 months ago

 Depression's Evolutionary Roots
Depression's Evolutionary Roots
Psychologists argue that depression may be an evolutionary advantage developed early in human history. What could be good about depression?

Depressed people often think intensely about their problems. They have difficulty thinking about anything else. Studies have shown that this thinking style is often highly analytical.

This analytical style of thought, of course, can be very productive picked by Bingo 4 months ago
