In conclusion, cancer survivors, especially older individuals, demonstrate greater odds of and accelerated functional decline, suggesting that cancer and/or its treatment may alter aging trajectories. Linking Particulate Air Pollution and Dementia in a Small Region of the US https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2021/08/linking-particulate-air-pollution-and-dementia-in-a-small-region-of-the-us/ It is fairly settled that evident particulate air pollution, such as daily exposure to smoke from wood-fueled cooking fires, has a strongly detrimental effect on long-term health. The mechanisms involved are inflammatory in nature, in that breathing in airborne particles of this nature produces inflammatory signaling that harms tissue function throughout the body, accelerating the onset and progression of all age-related conditions. This is particularly the case for atherosclerosis. A primary challenge to the study of this correlation between health and particulate air pollution is the confounding effects of wealth and status. Wealthier populations tend to live in areas with lower levels of particulate air pollution, poorer populations in areas with higher levels of particulate air pollution. It is possible to find natural experiments in which the question of wealth is minimized, however. One can look at an interesting paper comparing populations of a similar socioeconomic status in China, for example, showing that higher particulate air pollution correlates wit...

The human brain has billions of neurons that communicate by sending chemical and electrical signals. Mapping these electrical signals is critical to successful brain surgery and treatment of diseases like Epilepsy and Parkinson's. Researchers have developed an array of brain sensors that record ...This is an NSF Multimedia Gallery item.

Jane C. Healy, Rosslyn Dray The Journal of Adult Protection, Vol. ahead-of-print, No. ahead-of-print, pp.- This paper aims to consider the relationship between disability hate crime and safeguarding adults. It critically considers whether safeguarding responses to disability hate crime have changed following the implementation of the Care Act 2014. Historically, protectionist responses to disabled people may have masked the scale of hate crime and prevented them from seeking legal recourse through the criminal justice system (CJS). This paper investigates whether agencies are working together effectively...
