Neurons involved in Parkinson’s disease are especially susceptible to burnout because of their complex branching

Brains cells affected by Parkinson's disease die prematurely because they are prone to burning out "like an overheating motor", according to new research.

Here's how brief postnatal #blindness   in infants leads to lasting brain reprogramming
#neuroscience   #pediatrics  
Montreal, Canada (Scicasts) — A brief period of postnatal visual deprivation, when early in life, drives a rewiring of the brain areas involved in visual processing, even if the visual restoration is completed well before the baby reaches one year of age, researchers at the University of Trento, McMaster University, and the University of Montreal revealed today in Current Biology.

The death of brain cells in Parkinson's disease may be caused by a form of cellular energy crisis in neurons that require unusually high quantities of energy to carry out their job of regulating movement, researchers at the University of #Montreal  reported today. The neurodegenerative disorder affects over 100,000 Canadians and over 1,000,000 Americans. "Like a motor constantly running at high speed, these neurons need to produce an incredible amount of energy to function. They appear to exhaust themselves and die prematurely," said lead researcher Louis-Éric Trudeau, a professor at the university's Departments of #Pharmacology   and #Neuroscience

Most people don’t want to assume cheating will be an issue in their relationship, and so most people don’t spend much time thinking about what they’d do if it happened. And yet the existing statistics suggest it’s pretty common. Research by Genevieve Beaulieu-Pelletier, who studies relationships and infidelity at the University of Montreal, estimates that the chances of someone cheating while in a committed relationship range from 46 to 76 percent. “These numbers indicate that even if we get married with the best of intentions, things don’t always turn out the way we plan,” Beaulieu-Pelletier has said of her work. Her research, incidentally, has uncovered no gender difference in an individual’s likelihood to cheat — women are just as likely to cheat as men despite the stereotype of the philandering husband. Other studies, however, put that number much lower, at 25 percent of men and 15 percent of women. (And there is, of course, the trickiness of tracking something like infidelity, because people may very well be lying to the researchers about their history of cheating in relationships.)

The good news: The latest research is showing that infidelity doesn't have to be a relationship-killer, and scientists are starting to figure out why some couples emerge stronger than before.

We stopped in on the way between Ottawa and Montreal for dinner. The food was of the ordinary kind you'd find at any North American diner, and slightly on the expensive side. I was very unimpressed that a $4 charge was applied for splitting one main course meal over two plates so two toddlers could share it (which the waitress herself suggested, neglecting to mention the fee.) The worst though was asking us if we'd like desert, us responding no, and the waitress bringing out big trays of cake anyway. Cue screaming children (it didn't work.) The service was friendly and the meal generally inoffensive but I won't be bothered going back, especially seeing as there is a diner right on the 417 at the same exit.

The food is nice but overpriced for what it is, and amazingly (for a park chalet that is owned by the borough) there is almost nothing that is easy to feed to children in the menu. What I dislike about this café though is the disinterested and lazy wait staff. Customers shouldn't have to beg for service, especially not at these prices. It was excellent when it first opened but the last few times I've gone I've been really disappointed. I won't both going back again.

The service at the checkouts was extremely slow, the selection comparable to what you'd find anywhere else and the prices were no bargain. I'm sorry I wasted my time.

Café is incredibly poor value for money, and worse than that, the service is completely disinterested. Our waitress literally walked off and disappeared, and our beverages never arrived. The only time I've ever felt like walking off without paying the bill (which we obviously never received either,) but instead we queued up like good Canadians behind 10 other people and eventually managed to pay.
