Every Experience the Brain Perceives is Unique

Neuronal activity in the prefrontal cortex represents every experience as "novel." The neurons adapt their activity accordingly, even if the new experience is very similar to a previous one.

SpaceX to use a net boat called ‘Mr. Steven’ to recover next rocket fairing

When Tesla founder Elon Musk and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos began testing reusable rockets, few understood the significance of what they were trying to achieve. Now that Musk's company SpaceX is routinely re-launching used Falcon 9 boosters — not to mention the Falcon Heavy, which launched Feb. 6 with three times the payload of the space shuttle — the feat seems practically mundane. It's the new normal. But these launches are nothing short of extraordinary. The rise of reusable rockets is a revolution on par with the invention of the sail or the steam engine: It will change everything.

“We absolutely cannot let this project go down without a fight. If WFIRST gets cancelled, it’s a sign that even the most important NASA project, as determined by internal, external, and independent reviewers, is subject to political whims. These projects take more than a single presidency to design, approve, build, and launch. Federal funding for these vital missions that enhance all of society must not be allowed to disappear because one human — even if it’s the president — wills it. The joys, wonder, knowledge, and benefits that come from exploring and understanding the Universe are greater than any individual.”

When it comes to NASA, there are three main functions that make up the overwhelming majority of its budget: science, exploration, and space operations. Within science, the largest and most important missions, spread across planetary science, astrophysics, Earth science and heliophysics, are known as flagship missions. According to Thomas Zurbuchen, Associate Administrator for the Science Mission Directorate of NASA, “What we learn from these flagship missions is why we study the Universe. This is civilization-scale science… If we don’t do this, we aren’t NASA.” When someone (ahem… Trump) comes in, after decades of planning, and proposes to scrap an already-designed flagship mission, it threatens to end science-as-we-know-it at NASA.

The United States must not cede leadership in the space and science arena to Japan, Russia, Europe, China, India and Canada the same way it did with the superconducting supercollider 25 years ago. This time, humanity’s capability of understanding the entire Universe is what’s at stake.

THE ART OF THE ITALIAN TWO WHEEL CURATED BY STUART PARR~
I’m not a motorcycle type of girl, but I love anything vintage, and these bikes are gorgeous pieces of machinery! 🏍

Drawing from his extensive personal collection of motorcycles, Parr revealed a selection of 35 vintage Italian bikes – such names as Ducati, Benelli, Laverda, Magni, and MV Agusta among them, drawn largely from the golden years of the 1960's and '70s – alongside a new design of his own. The exhibition will be on view through April 25, 2018! Miami Design District

Will you see the Humanity Star? - Prelaunch photo of the Humanity Star and Rocket Lab’s CEO Peter Beck, via Rocket Lab. Even though professional astronomers are mad about it, I love the name Humanity Star, and I’m fine with the idea behind its launch. That’ll remain true even if I never see it. This satellite – a 3-foot (one-meter) geodesic sphere, made up of 65 highly reflective carbon fiber panels – got a lot of media attention around the time of its January 21, 2018, launch, and it’s sti...

Brain Immune System is Key to Recovery from Motor Neuron Degeneration

The selective demise of motor neurons is the hallmark of Lou Gehrig’s disease, also known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Yet neurologists have suspected there are other types of brain cells involved in the progression of this disorder -- perhaps protection from it, which could light the way to treatment methods for the incurable disease. To get to the bottom of this question, researchers in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania engineered mice in which the damage caused by a mutant human TDP-43 protein could be reversed by one type of brain immune cell. TDP-43 is a protein that misfolds and accumulates in the motor areas of the brains of ALS patients.

Data detectives shift suspicions in Alzheimer's to inside villain

The mass pursuit of a conspicuous suspect in Alzheimer's disease may have encumbered research success for decades. Now, a new data analysis that has untangled evidence amassed in years of Alzheimer's studies encourages researchers to refocus their investigations. Heaps of plaque formed from amyloid-beta that accumulate in afflicted brains are what stick out under the microscope in tissue samples from Alzheimer's sufferers, and that eye-catching junk has long seemed an obvious culprit in the disease. But data analysis of the cumulative evidence doesn't back up so much attention to that usual suspect, according to a new study from the Georgia Institute of Technology. Though the bad amyloid-beta protein does appear to be an accomplice in the disease, the study has pointed to a more likely red-handed offender, another protein-gone-bad called phosphorylated tau (p-tau). What's more, the Georgia Tech data analysis of multiple studies done on mice also turned up signs that multiple biochemical actors work together in Alzheimer's to tear down neurons, the cells that the brain uses to do its work.Suspect line-up: P-tau implicated, plaque not so much: And the corrupted amyloid-beta that appeared more directly in cahoots with p-tau in the sabotage of brain function was not tied up in that plaque. In the line-up of the biochemical suspects examined, principal investigator Cassie Mitchell, an assistant professor in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University, said the data pointed to a pecking order of culpability. "The most important one would be the level of phosphorylated tau present. It had the strongest connection with cognitive decline," Mitchell said. "The correlation with amyloid plaque was there but very weak; not nearly as strong as the correlation between p-tau and cognitive decline."
