Harvard and +Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)  researchers are painting a rich picture of how cognitive skills peak through life, with vocabulary doing so surprisingly late, when many people are near retirement.

#science   #research  
New research from Harvard and MIT shows that different cognitive skills peak at different times in lifespan.

Researchers identify a vital protein that can determine head and brain development.

#science   #stemcells   #health  
A protein that is necessary for the formation of the vertebrate brain has been identified by researchers at the Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI) and Boston Children’s Hospital, in collaboration with scientists from Oxford and Rio de Janeiro.

Why?
If the old ones you do not like, we can make many new ones, every day. We can have mummies coming out of the woodwork, if you like.
I have a friend who is planning to be a mummy, himself.
Perhaps, I will join him.

Researchers identify a class of neurons that trigger the cerebral cortex to hum rhythmically and in tune.

#science
Researchers have identified a group of neurons in the brain. The role of this cell type, in a region of the brain important for “waking up the cortex,” had not been previously identified. It may suggest potential therapies for disorders like schizophrenia.

In the study of how early human ancestors developed, should juvenile fossils be considered fundamentally human or apelike? Looks like the answer is neither. 

#fossil   #science   #history  
A new study shows that the teeth of early hominins grew unlike those of either modern humans or apes, suggesting that neither can serve as a useful proxy for estimating the age or developmental progression of juvenile fossils.

Researchers have devised two methods for using stem cells to generate the type of neurons that help regulate behavioral and basic physiological functions in the human body, such as obesity and hypertension, as well as sleep, mood, and some social disorders.
