In this study, a PET camera was used to examine individual differences in the D2 system in a group consisting of 181 healthy individuals between the age of 64 and 68. All participants also had to take part in an all-inclusive performance test of the long-term episodic memory, working memory and processing speed along with an MRI assessment (which was used to measure the size of various parts of the brain). Researchers could see that the D2 system was positively linked to episodic memory, but not to working memory or to processing speed by relating PET registrations to the cognitive data. Researchers could also see that the D2 system affects the functioning of the hippocampus in the brain, long linked to long-term episodic memory. FINALLY SIGNED UP FOR CRYOPRESERVATION: THE EXISTENCE OF A FALLBACK PLAN IS GREAT, BUT ONLY IF YOU ACTUALLY TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2016/07/finally-signed-up-for-cryopreservation-the-existence-of-a-fallback-plan-is-great-but-only-if-you-actually-take-advantage-of-it/ As regular readers will know, I've long considered the cryonics industry to be a sensible, necessary undertaking in an uncertain world. For those of us interested in longevity, the primary plan is to accelerate development of rejuvenation therapies to the point at which we can achieve actuarial escape velocity: that we'll benefit somewhat from the first generation of therapies, and thus survive long enough to benefit from the second, much bet...

CONCLUSIONS: In VFT analysis of SSNHL with dizziness, diverse patterns were identified. In the absence of SN, no definite vestibular organ involvement was the most frequent. But in the case with SN, posterior canal deficit was most common and cerebellar ischemic stroke was rare. PMID: 32623411 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
