Memory Molecule Limits Plasticity by Calibrating Calcium

Nestled between the highly plastic CA1 and CA3 regions, the rather inflexible neurons of area CA2 do not readily undergo synaptic plasticity, sharply contrasting the functional properties of its close neighbors.

The research is in eNeuro. (full access paywall)

Eating at night, sleeping by day swiftly alters key blood proteins

Staying awake all night and sleeping all day for just a few days can disrupt levels and time of day patterns of more than 100 proteins in the blood, including those that influence blood sugar, energy metabolism, and immune function, according to new University of Colorado Boulder research published in the journal PNAS this week. "This tells us that when we experience things like jet lag or a couple of nights of shift work, we very rapidly alter our normal physiology in a way that if sustained can be detrimental to our health," said senior author Kenneth Wright, director of the Sleep and Chronobiology Laboratory and Professor in the Department of Integrative Physiology. The study is the first to examine how protein levels in human blood, also known as the plasma proteome, vary over a 24-hour period and how altered sleep and meal timing affects them. It also pinpointed 30 distinct proteins that, regardless of sleep and meal timing, vary depending upon what internal circadian time it is. The findings could open the door for developing new treatments for night shift workers, who make up about 20 percent of the global workforce and are at higher risk for diabetes and cancer. It could also enable doctors to precisely time administration of drugs, vaccines and diagnostic tests around the circadian clock. "If we know the proteins that the clock regulates, we can adjust timing of treatments to be in line with those proteins," said lead author Christopher Depner, a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Integrative Physiology...Researchers drew blood every four hours and used technology recently developed by Boulder-based SomaLogic, Inc to assess levels and time-of-day-patterns of 1,129 proteins. They found 129 proteins whose patterns were thrown off by the simulated night shift.

Cumbria and the Lake District: Spring 2018, No. 12

https://www.iancylkowski.com/cumbria-spring-2018/

It's possible to get up-close and personal with the top of Stockghyll Force in Ambleside, just make sure you've got a steady foot. When we hiked this gorge the day was rather hazy, producing a soft light that was perfect for shooting waterfalls. However, upon scrambling down to get to this view of Upper Stockghyll Force the sun finally broke through and illuminated the whole scene in golden light.
