In this study, 72% of the patients had suffered from intracranial haemorrhage. Imaging analysis was performed using diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) to assess changes in white matter after intervention. We investigated white matter change before and after intervention and the relationship between white matter structure and motor function recovery using tract-based spatial statistics. The intra-voxel directional coherence was significantly incre ased in the anterior limb of the internal capsule and anterior thalamic radiation on the lesional side following intervention. Mean diffusivity and radial diffusivity values of cluste...

I'm still sketching out the basic challenges facing humanity, in broad strokes. Last week I presented the history of human population in the past 2000 years and a very basic primer on climate. But there are much broader issues of resource depletion. Some people have expected bigger catastrophes sooner than they have actually happened, and it's perilous to make very specific predictions, but we're at the point now where we aren't just making predictions, we're observing what's already happening.Here's the basic problem:If 3 billion people are going to  achieve a standard of living comparable to that of a typical North ...

Brain activity associated with learning of left-handed key-presses during rest periods, via Bönstrup et al 2019 By Matthew Warren A wealth of research has shown that taking breaks is an important part of learning. Resting straight after acquiring new information seems to improve memory of that information, for example, and sleep is particularly important for consolidating what we have just learned.  Now it seems that even miniscule breaks, just seconds long, are also vital for learning new skills. A study published recently in Current Biology has found that most of the improvement while learning a motor task come...
