Research. Does better understanding of how nervous system of the "gut" functions lead us to treatment of neuro-degenerative diseases? Research says - yes, it does. Enteric nervous system contains between 400-600 million nerves and is crucial for everyday functions such as digestion, fluid absorption and communicating with the immune system. Research states that neuro-degenerative diseases starts showing initial symptoms in the gut, and potentially can be treated using stem cells. Even while we wait for conclusive research - please treat your digestive tract with love and respect. It will be worth it.

Research. how general anesthetics works in the brain? Japanese researches studies the effects of a common anesthetic, isoflurane. This compound blocks high frequency impulses that are necessary for cognitive and motor functions., but allows low frequency impulses that are necessary for life supporting functions, such as breathing. Isoflurane partially blocks release of neurotransmitters, and this decreased "capacity" is not sufficient anymore for more intense, higher frequency signals to go through.

Research. The waste removal system in the brain apparently is synchronized with the internal circadian clock that regulates sleep and wake cycle. That might mean that people who nap during the day either because of irregular work schedule or because they are trying to catch up with the lack of sleep during the night are at higher risk of having neurological disorders. Most of the brain "cleanup" happens during our usual sleep cycle (night for most of us), and also during the sleep. And if we do not do that - brain is more exposed to the detrimental impact of the toxins.

Article. Are brains of men and women different? Over 100 years of research says - no. First science stated that larger brains of men make them more intelligent, but no relationship between brain size and intellect was found. Following this logic, elephants should be more intelligent than all men, which we believe is not the case. Size of individual regions of teh brain was not related to intelligence either. Brains of different people are simply too different. It was concluded that corpus callosum (the part joining both sides of the brain) is larger in women, but this is actually the case for all smaller brains, and is not relevant to women only. Actually, brains of men and women are more alike than different, and if you only had a brain to decide, you would not be able to distinguish man from woman. Therefore we must remain with conclusion that all brain differences are acquired and not innate - if we use specific skills, brain areas that manage this develop better. If you drive more often, following tradition or stereotype, then your dirving skills are better. No other secret here.

Monika, well said. So much complexity is involved. By speaking of differences on only one level (neuroscientific one) we lose a lot information. Even if brains were statistically different, does it really matter? At the end of the, we are dealing with people, not their organs.
