Brain Aging Linked to Sleep-Related Memory Decline

Brain Aging Linked to Sleep-Related Memory Decline | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
A report in Nature Neuroscience suggests that natural physical changes interfere with quality slumber, blunting the ability to remember new information for the long term.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

If I could remember what the article said, I'd probably be impressed. Seriously, this is fairly obvious stuff except that they didn't do the right control, training a group of elderly until their pre-sleep performance was equal to the younger group. If the amount of slow-wave sleep is essential, then meditation and hypnosis may become at least paliative.

You be the Judge. Sleep deprivation does effect memory and physical ailment effects sleep so what are the answers?

Missouri Bill Would Require All First Graders To Take NRA-Sponsored Gun Class

Missouri Bill Would Require All First Graders To Take NRA-Sponsored Gun Class | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
Students in Missouri have no sexual education requirement, so there’s a good chance they don’t know how to properly protect themselves from STIs or unintended pregnancy. Soon, though, they may be able to protect themselves from guns.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

Once again we see that the Republican party is just not interested in what is good policy only in what is good business. Now one of their paymasters, the NRA (Gun businesses) is in trouble so they are quick to ride to the rescue. Next shooting they can say it was the teachers' union's fault.
