An interconnection between the nervous and immune system

Working with colleagues from the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE), Harvard Medical School and Ohio State University, researchers from Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin have shown that the increased incidence of infections seen in spinal cord injury patients is directly linked to a disruption of the normal central nervous system. A newly-discovered reflex arc mediates a process which leads to a disruption in the hormones secreted by the adrenal glands which, in turn, results in an increased susceptibility to bacterial infections. This research breaks new ground in the development of treatments to reduce the incidence of infections, and its results have been published in the current issue of Nature Neuroscience. Injuries to the brain or spinal cord, such as those caused by stroke or trauma, result in a considerable weakening of the immune system. This often leads to severe infections, such as pneumonia or urinary tract infections, which hamper nervous tissue regeneration as well as rehabilitation in affected patients. Until now, our understanding of the exact manner in which nerve tissue damage leads to infections (and which physiological parameters are responsible) has remained rudimentary at best.

Debunking the Myth That OCD is Associated With Superior Intelligence

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is not associated with a higher intelligence quotient (IQ), a myth popularized by Sigmund Freud, according to researchers at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU), Texas State University and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

The research is in Neuropsychology Review. (full access paywall)

Massive Outburst from the Double Star System V745 Sco Observed by Astronomers

For decades, astronomers have known about irregular outbursts from the double star system V745 Sco, which is located about 25,000 light years from Earth. Astronomers were caught by surprise when previous outbursts from this system were seen in 1937 and 1989. When the system erupted on February 6, 2014, however, scientists were ready to observe the event with a suite of telescopes including NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory.

An extraordinary amount of energy was released during the explosion, equivalent to about 10 million trillion hydrogen bombs.

V745 Sco is a binary star system that consists of a red giant star and a white dwarf locked together by gravity. These two stellar objects orbit so closely around one another that the outer layers of the red giant are pulled away by the intense gravitational force of the white dwarf. This material gradually falls onto the surface of the white dwarf.

Over time, enough material may accumulate on the white dwarf to trigger a colossal thermonuclear explosion, causing a dramatic brightening of the binary called a nova.

Astronomers observed V745 Sco with Chandra a little over two weeks after the 2014 outburst. Their key finding was it appeared that most of the material ejected by the explosion was moving towards our solar system.

To explain this, a team of scientists from the INAF-Osservatorio Astronomico di Palermo, the University of Palermo, and the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics constructed a three-dimensional (3D) computer model of the explosion, and adjusted the model until it explained the observations. In this model they included a large disk of cool gas around the equator of the binary caused by the white dwarf pulling on a wind of gas streaming away from the red giant.

Mexican map of first solar eclipse observed in the young United States, 1778

An extremely scarce Mexican map of the solar eclipse of 1778, the totality of which was experienced in Mexico, the southeastern United States, Spain and parts of Africa. Owned in partnership with HS Rare Books of Buenos Aires.

The map employs an odd projection to depict the northern hemisphere from North America to the Baltics. The path of the total eclipse of June 24, 1778 is shown, with the inner lines (labeled “Central”) indicating the area of totality. This was the first recorded solar eclipse in the independent United States, passing from Lower California to New England, and was observed by among others John Rittenhouse and Thomas Jefferson.

The map was published in the Descripcion orthographica universal del eclipse de sol del dia 24 de Junio de 1778, a short tract by Mexican astronomer, anthropologist and writer Antonio de Leon y Gama (1735 – 1802). The Descripcion is considered the most reputable of its kind published in Mexico during the 18th century (“se considera, desde el punto de vista matemático y astronómico, el trabajo más serio publicado en México durante el siglo XVIII” (Gustavo Soriano Cedillo)). Its first part describes the ephemerides of the astronomical phenomenon; the second contains the description of the instruments employed and his modus operandi, basing his calculus in the methods of Kepler and Cassini. It helped fix the problem of determining the longitude and latitude of the city of Mexico. Both the Descripcion and the map are very rare.
