Multisensory Integration - Extreme Noise Conditions Can Influence Taste Perception

Multisensory Integration - Extreme Noise Conditions Can Influence Taste Perception | Music, Videos, Colours, Natural Health | Scoop.it
A new study reports conditions which are extremely noisy can alter taste perception for sweet and umami flavors.

 

"Eating is a fundamentally multisensory experience: we don’t just eat our food, we also see it, smell it, and hear ourselves chewing it. However, perception of non-food components of the dining experience can also influence flavor perception. For instance, desserts are rated as sweeter if they are presented on a white vs. black plate, and exposure to loud noise reduces affective food ratings."

Brain Connection Strength Varies With Fitness Levels in Older Adults

Brain Connection Strength Varies With Fitness Levels in Older Adults | Music, Videos, Colours, Natural Health | Scoop.it
A new study shows that age-related differences in brain health – specifically the strength of connections between different regions of the brain – vary with fitness level in older adults. The findings suggest that greater cardiorespiratory fitness – a measure of aerobic endurance – relates to stronger brain connections and likely improves long-term brain function in aging populations.

The study results are reported in the journal NeuroImage.

Michelle Voss led the study while a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Illinois with Beckman Institute director Arthur Kramer and kinesiology and community health professor Edward McAuley. Voss now is an assistant professor at the University of Iowa.

“Our study provides the strongest evidence to date that fitness in an older adult population can have substantial benefits to brain health in terms of the functional connections of different regions of the brain,” Kramer said.

There are many ways to measure brain health across the lifespan. One popular technique measures the strength of connections between different parts of the brain while the person is completing a task or during wakeful rest. The latter is known as resting-state functional connectivity. Research has shown that some of these connections weaken with increasing age and indicate deteriorating brain health.

Next-generation genetic sequencing found right diagnosis for Australian 'Mystery Boy'

Next-generation genetic sequencing found right diagnosis for Australian 'Mystery Boy' | Music, Videos, Colours, Natural Health | Scoop.it
Mystery Boy Brandon Keesing was incorrectly diagnosed with a degenerative muscular disease until revolutionary genetic sequencing gave him life-changing news.

 

Originally thought that Keesing has a mitochondrial disease, doctors had been wrong all along. Revolutionary advances in genetic sequencing proved he did not have mitochondrial disease at all. "In recent years the capacity to read the genetic code of every single gene — all 20,000 of them in the human body — has reached a point where it is now efficient, accurate, cost-effective to be able to do this," he says.

 

The new technique is called "next generation sequencing" — and where previously it took weeks or months to analyse the code of a single gene, today laboratory computers can decode all 20,000 genes in one go.

 

Almost immediately Westmead Children's Hospital researchers could pinpoint which one of Brandon's genes had a mutation. Professor Christodoulou illustrates how the technique works on a chart. "So here in the unaffected individual we have an 'A'. Here in the affected individual we have a 'G'. And that's precisely where the mistake is," he says.

 

Doctors using next generation sequencing discovered in fact that Brandon had congenital myasthenia — a different genetic disease which also affects the muscles. But although incurable, it is not usually fatal and can be treated with medication.

 

"The name of the gene that we found the mistakes in is called COLQ, and it has a completely different role," Professor Christodoulou says. "It has nothing to do with mitochondrial energy production. "What it is involved in is co-ordinating the communication of nerve cells with the muscle, so that the muscle, when it receives an impulse from a nerve cell, it contracts and relaxes appropriately.

 

"So the problem with the COLQ mistakes is that this process couldn't be co-ordinated properly. And that's what actually led to his progressive problems."

 

Finding that one gene in 20,000 has transformed Brandon's life. A simple drug quickly restored some of his muscle strength. As quickly as he had deteriorated as a toddler, he suddenly began making huge strides.

"We noticed it straight away. By the end of that week he got up off that bed and he walked," she says, wiping away tears. "That was unreal. I'll never forget that day. I was so happy for him and ... I just knew from that he was going to grow, he was going to enjoy his life that much more than what he had before. And he has."

 

Professor Christodoulou says it was a very gratifying outcome for doctors.

¡No tengamos Miedo a Perder! | Music, Videos, Colours, Natural Health | Scoop.it
por Carlos Nava Condarco - Hay diferencia importante de grado entre el Temor y el Miedo. Y cuando se trata de la posibilidad de Perder, el hombre tiene esto último, nada menos. Esta actitud no es producto de algo que tenga poca importancia, el miedo a Perder es un reflejo del carácter de las personas, de la visión que tienen de la vida y de sí mismos. Este miedo gobierna a la gente y la inhabilita para progresar, la aleja, como pocas cosas, de la prosperidad.

Stanford neuroscience research identifies more effective way to teach abstract math concepts to children

Stanford neuroscience research identifies more effective way to teach abstract math concepts to children | Music, Videos, Colours, Natural Health | Scoop.it
A new study shows that students who use symmetry to learn about numbers tap into critical brain circuits.

 

"Building on new discoveries about how the brain grapples with abstract mathematics, researchers at Stanford Graduate School of Education have developed a classroom strategy for teaching children the often baffling concepts surrounding negative numbers.

 

"The new strategy recruits the brain's use of visual symmetry to make sense of the physical world, and it could have profound implications for the way elementary schools teach math.

 

"Using symmetry appears to have helped not just in teaching children about negative numbers but in improving their ability to solve higher-level math problems they haven't seen before."

 

"As part of a four-hour curriculum on integers, fourth-grade students played games using a special number line that could be folded in half at the zero point, allowing the symmetry between positive and negative quantities to stand out."
