Recording a Thought's Fleeting Trip Through the Brain

University of California, Berkeley neuroscientists have tracked the progress of a thought through the brain, showing clearly how the prefrontal cortex at the front of the brain coordinates activity to help us act in response to a perception.

The research is in Nature Human Behavior. (full access paywall)

Neuron Loss Very Limited in Alzheimer's

Frequently encountered in the elderly, Alzheimer's is considered a neurodegenerative disease, which means that it is accompanied by a significant, progressive loss of neurons and their nerve endings, or synapses.

Fascinating. Although this article is about why weight is hard to lose, my guess is this information could also be a clue as to why excess weight is associated with so many other things like autoimmune diseases, increased risk of cancer and the like. The chronic inflammatory response due to the chronically distressed cells may be a key to a whole room full of discovery.

Why Weight is So Hard to Lose

From the article: "The main issue was oxygen supply. As fat cells enlarge, there isn’t enough oxygen, and the cells struggle to survive. This causes inflammation in the fat cells, and that response carries over to the bloodstream, eventually reaching levels that are measurable in blood assays."

"How did Borneo get its elephant? This could be just another of Rudyard Kipling's just so stories. The Bornean elephant is a subspecies of Asian Elephants that only exist in a small region of Borneo. Their presence on this southeastern Asian island has been a mystery. Now, in a study published in Scientific Reports*, a research team led by Lounès Chikhi from Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC, Portugal) and CNRS, Université Paul Sabatier (France), and Benoit Goossens, from Cardiff University (Wales), and Sabah Wildlife Department (Malaysia), found that elephants might have arrived on Borneo at a time of the last land bridge between the Sunda Islands in Southeast Asia.

Until recently, two opposing theories have been under debate to explain the origin of Bornean elephants: they could have been recently introduced by humans, maybe 300 years ago, or they could have diverged from Asian elephants a long time ago. Indeed, there are historic records reporting that, in the 17th century, neighbour Sultans offered elephants as gifts to the Bornean Sultan. Current elephants would thus be non-native elephants that turned feral. On the other hand, about 15 years ago a genetic study showed that the DNA of Bornean elephants was very different from that of other Asian elephants, suggesting a very ancient separation, on the order of 300,000 years ago. However, no elephant fossils have yet been discovered in Borneo, even though fossils from other large mammals such as orang-utans have been found.

To shed light on the mystery of Bornean elephant's origin, Chikhi and Goossens' team used genetic data analysis and computational modelling to study the past demographic history of these animals. It is very difficult to track ancient demographic history of animals, even more when there are no fossil records to guide the work. "What we did was to create computational models for different scenarios that might have happened. Then, we compared the results from these models with the existing genetic data, and used statistical techniques to identify the scenario that best explained the current genetic diversity of the elephant population in Borneo", explains Lounès Chikhi".

So your Wi-Fi issues are actually not caused by Google Homes and Chromecasts themselves, they're not doing anything wrong.

Rather it's Google Play services causing your Android devices that see the cast devices on the same network to flood the network with packets, bringing it down or making it unstable.

The fix is rolling out January 18th, with an update to Google Play services.

Midbrain 'Start Neurons' Control Whether We Run or Walk

Locomotion, or moving from one place to another, is one of the most fundamental movements we perform. We do it when we want or we need to, and it is a complex sequence from initiating the first step, to stopping when we reach our goal. At the same time, locomotion is executed at different speeds to regulate how fast we travel from one place to another depending on the purpose that drives us.

The research is in Nature. (full access paywall)

Ann Curry 'not surprised' by Matt Lauer scandal, says NBC had a 'climate of verbal harassment'

After Matt Lauer was fired from the "Today" show in November due to allegations of sexual harassment, multiple awkward TV moments from his past came to light, particularly regarding conversations with women. One incident got a lot of renewed attention -- Ann Curry's disastrous exit when she left "Today" in 2012.

+European Space Agency, ESA

The European Columbus module is packed up and loaded for transport to the US in this image from 2006. Built in Turin, Italy, and Bremen, Germany, the completed module was shipped to NASA’s facilities in Cape Canaveral, Florida ahead of its February 2008 launch aboard Space Shuttle Atlantis.

Columbus has been providing microgravity research facilities for the past decade. In honour of this milestone, this week’s image celebrates Columbus’ triumph over setbacks. Many events factored into its delayed launch: the bureaucratic challenge of planning and budgeting, construction delays and the tragic 2003 Columbia Shuttle disaster meant Columbus was five years behind schedule by the time it climbed into the sky.
