Looking forward to the day when Brain Scans are reimbursable and covered by health insurance as part of the yearly checkup.

Eric Topol's Wellderly Study finds "a constellation of genes that create resistance to Alzheimer’s and coronary artery disease. But so far there’s no smoking gun."

Tel Aviv University researchers have discovered how to manipulate the transgenerational duration of epigenetic inheritance in worms by switching 'on' and 'off' the small RNAs that worms use to regulate genes. They claim these switches are controlled by a feedback interaction between gene-regulating small RNAs, which are inheritable, and the MOTEK genes that are required to produce and transmit these small RNAs across generations. "The feedback determines whether epigenetic memory will continue to the progeny or not, and how long each epigenetic response will last."

So inspirational. Way to go, SpaceX.
The SpaceX team just lost it after one of their rockets launched satellites to space and then landed back on Earth upright.

I've been away from G+ for a while, and have come back to what appears to be an Instagram clone.... What happened to all of the smart articles? Were they all replaced by silly graphics?

That worked, although there seems to still be far more gifs and fluff articles than I'm used to. I guess more people equals lower quality...

A very nice article about the extended lifespans of various plants and animals that experience negligible aging.
Most animals eventually get old and die. But a few lucky species don't seem to feel the weight of time, and just keep going and going

Good news for those of us interested in cognitive enhancement! Researchers have found two gene clusters that are linked to human intelligence. The scientists have discovered that these two networks are likely to be under the control of master regulator switches. The researchers want to identify those switches and see if they can manipulate them, and ultimately find out if this knowledge of gene networks could allow for boosting cognitive function. I'm sure this is just the start of what we're going to learn in the near future, about how to genetically boost intelligence.
