The ‘blob’: Paris zoo unveils unusual organism which can heal itself and has 720 sexes

Posted by in category: neuroscience

It is bright yellow, can creep along at a speed of up to 4 centimeters (1.6 inches) per hour, can solve problems even though it doesn’t have a brain and can heal itself if it is cut in two.

Meet the “blob,” an unusual organism which will go on display Saturday at the Paris Zoological Park, as part of a first-of-its-kind exhibition intended to showcase its rare abilities.

The slime mold, which is known officially as physarum polycephalum (or “the many headed slime”) is neither a plant, an animal or a fungus. It doesn’t have two sexes — male and female — it has 720. And it can also split into different organisms and then fuse back together, according to a press release from the Zoological Park.

Neurosurgeon: EMF Radiation Can Cause Leak In Blood Brain Barrier

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, internet, mobile phones, neuroscience

The industry science behind EMF radiation is more corrupt than that of climate science, and has been so since the beginning. With the imminent rollout of 5G, no scientific studies have been done on exposure to humans at any distance. ⁃ TN Editor.

Neurosurgeon and researcher Dr. Leif Salford has conducted many studies on radio frequency radiation and its effects on the brain. Dr. Salford called the potential implications of some of his research “terrifying.” Some of the most concerning conclusions result from the fact that the weakest exposure levels to wireless radiation caused the greatest effect in causing the blood brain barrier to leak.

Alzheimer’s Gene Therapy Human Study Seeks Volunteers

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension, neuroscience

Integrated Health Systems, in partnership with Maximum Life Foundation, is funding a trial to rejuvenate microglial cells using telomerase gene therapy. This trial is currently looking for ten patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s Disease. At this time five of the positions have been filled. The trial will be conducted in MONTEREY, Mexico. Treatment is …“Alzheimer’s Gene Therapy Human Study Seeks Volunteers”

This med student was given last rites before finding a treatment that saved his life. His method could help millions

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, neuroscience

He lay in a hospital bed at the University of Arkansas, stricken with a rare disease. His blood platelet count was so low that even a slight bump to his body could trigger a lethal brain bleed. A doctor told him to write his living will on a piece of paper.

Fajgenbaum was rushed to a CT scan. Tears streamed down his face and fell on his hospital gown. He thought about the first patient who’d died under his care in medical school, and how her brain had bled in a similar way from a stroke.

He didn’t believe he’d live out the scan.

The US military wants super-soldiers to control drones with their minds

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, drones, military, neuroscience

I n August, three graduate students at Carnegie Mellon University were crammed together in a small, windowless basement lab, using a jury-rigged 3D printer frame to zap a slice of mouse brain with electricity.

The brain fragment, cut from the hippocampus, looked like a piece of thinly sliced garlic. It rested on a platform near the center of the contraption. A narrow tube bathed the slice in a solution of salt, glucose, and amino acids. This kept it alive, after a fashion: neurons in the slice continued to fire, allowing the experimenters to gather data. An array of electrodes beneath the slice delivered the electric zaps, while a syringe-like metal probe measured how the neurons reacted. Bright LED lamps illuminated the dish. The setup, to use the lab members’ lingo, was kind of hacky.

Scientists Get Green Light To Bring Back Dead To Life With Stem Cells

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, health, neuroscience

US biotechnology company called Bioquark has been given permission to recruit 20 clinically dead patients and attempt to bring their central nervous systems back to life. They hope to eliminate patients’ need to rely on machines by reanimating parts of the upper spinal cord, where the lower brain stem is located, to potentially energize vital body functions like breathing and heartbeats.

Trial participants will have been declared certified dead and kept alive solely through life support machines. “This represents the first trial of its kind and another step towards the eventual reversal of death in our lifetime,” said CEO of Bioquark Inc., Ira Pastor.

The team, who has been granted ethical permission from an Institutional Review Board at the National Institutes of Health in the US and India to begin trials on 20 subjects, is looking to recruit patients for its ReAnima Project as soon as possible.
