Scientists: because of the depression, the aging brain 10 years earlier

Scientists: because of the depression, the aging brain 10 years earlier But this can be dealt with. Depression can accelerate the aging of the brain, found researchers from Yale University. Using a new technique of brain scanning, they were able to establish that the synaptic density — the number of connections in the brain — in people with depression start to decline 10 years earlier, on average at age 40 years rather than 50. Memory impairment, slowing of speech, “fog” in the head and age-related diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, such people comes first. Synapses — the most important and the most “elusive” parts of the brain. It is the contact points between neurons that allow information to navigate through the areas of the brain and between them. In the brain of about 100 billion neurons, each of which is associated with about 10 thousands of others. When we are

People have taken into account the experience of others in the future to get an electric shock Supervision and guidance was as effective as reflexes. European scientists have found that the decisions of man can act not only formed his reflexes that signals danger, but a simple awareness: verbal or observation.

In the depths of the Earth were mountains and valleys

In the depths of the Earth were mountains and valleys According to modern concepts, our planet consists of a hard and thin crust, the mantle is very viscous and more or less fluid core. The mantle lies at depths from 30-50 up to 3000 km, it accounts for a large part of the earth substance. About the structure and composition of the mantle, we know very little, almost only on geophysical data. The overwhelming importance of seismology data, obtained by observing the propagation of seismic waves generated by powerful earthquakes — only they have a chance to penetrate deep enough and bring out some kind of discernible information. According to their analysis, it is known that the mantle is divided into upper and lower, the divide between them runs approximately 670 km from the surface. But the shape of the border until this day was unknown. Newsof an Unusual seismic

Write about the scientists, who published an article in the journal Science. “We compared the DNA of rabbits who lived on Earth before the epidemic of myxomatosis, and the genomes of their modern descendants, have developed resistance to the action of the virus. We have shown that in all three countries, natural selection in the same way changed the structure of the genes of the immune system,” says Joel Alves (Joel Alves) from the University of Cambridge (UK).
