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.

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. Apparently, we are still evolving! Programming code is not activating the usual suspect brain regions - math, language or logic. Such type of activity rather activates a so called multiple demand network, which processes several signals from different areas of the brain and both hemispheres. Sounds quite renaissance! With, that, I demand that IT profession is classified as exact science! OK OK, just kidding. But still, brings a whole another perspective on how we think. And code.

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.
