Cellular aging is linked to structural changes in the brain

Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences

Telomeres are protective caps at the ends of chromosomes that become shorter with each cell division. If they become so short that the genes they protect could be damaged, the cell stops dividing and renewing. Consequently, the cell is increasingly unable to perform its functions. This mechanism is one of the ways in which we age.

Wearable Brain-Machine Interface Could Control a Wheelchair, Vehicle or Computer

Georgia Institute of Technology

Combining new classes of nanomembrane electrodes with flexible electronics and a deep learning algorithm could help disabled people wirelessly control an electric wheelchair, interact with a computer or operate a small robotic vehicle without donning a bulky hair-electrode cap or contending with wires.

AAN Recommends People 65+ Be Screened Yearly for Memory Problems

American Academy of Neurology (AAN)

People with mild cognitive impairment have thinking and memory problems but usually do not know it because such problems are not severe enough to affect their daily activities. Yet mild cognitive impairment can be an early sign of Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia.
