Andres Lozano: Parkinson's, depression and the switch that might turn them off | Video on TED.com

Deep brain stimulation is becoming very precise. This technique allows surgeons to place electrodes in almost any area of the brain, and turn them up or down -- like a radio dial or thermostat -- to correct dysfunction.
HAVAS LYNX's insight:

Excellent talk detailing the future potential treatment of parkinsons with deep brain stimulation.

HAVAS LYNX's insight:

Our next big High5ives challenge involves a total of 300km! Only this time it’s the collective efforts of 30 people running the Manchester 10K. Whilst the majority of our limber LYNX’S are embarking on group runs after work on a Thursday, Tom Wordley, Healthcare Wordsmith, has embarked on the very technical technique of “tapering;” “It starts with doing nothing and now it’s tapered into more nothing.” Donations can be made at our High5ives JustGiving page, (Mr. Wordley might just break into a jog for £1,000), with all money going to the Motor Neurone Disease Association. Keep a look out for the #High5ives coverage of the event!

HAVAS LYNX's insight:

Hi all, 

“The toughest footrace on earth” is what they call the Marathon des Sables and Tim Woodcock, HAVAS LYNX London General Manager, will be taking part in it this April. 
• 5.5 Marathons
• 5th April 
• 50°C in the Sahara sun
• £50,000 donation aim for Excellent Development

We invite you to follow his progress through our live tracker, or to send him a picture with this poster through Facebook and Twitter – @HAVASLYNXEU and #High5ives. 

The challenge
Marathon des Sables is a gruelling six-day adventure through a formidable landscape in one of the world’s most inhospitable climates—the Sahara desert. With temperatures in excess of 50°C (100F), and with participants carrying all of their own equipment (pans, food, duvet etc.), this truly amazing event will push competitors to the brink of their physical and mental states. 

The charity 
Excellent Development is a charity that provides clean water to African villages. They work with local partners to build sand dams, which provide clean water that supports life and the opportunity to grow food to eat, store and sell. Excellent development really helps to empower communities by putting their future in their hands.

Please help us to support this charity and to support Tim on this incredible adventure.

Thank you for your time, 

HAVAS LYNX

Facebook is a social utility that connects people with friends and others who work, study and live around them.
HAVAS LYNX's insight:

A huge congratulations to our lovely James Young who finished the Manchester Marathon over the weekend, and raised over £1000 for AMREF in the process.

James' run was captured by the MEN photographers, who managed to find the elusive man. You may remember James was also spotted by the cameras at the Olympics last summer...dressed as Where's Wally. It is unclear whether he has ever left the office without this outfit on.

There is still plenty of time to sponsor James for this brilliant achievement, his JustGiving link can be found below.
