In conversation with Tiffany White, winner of the Hysteria 2020 flash fiction competition

Tiffany White was the winner of the Hysteria 2020 flash fiction competition with her piece ‘Working Title’ published in the Hysteria 7 anthology. Based in Swansea, Wales, 57-year-old artist Tiffany H White (LGBTQ) began writing in 2020 to combat lockdown dementia.  Her work “Field Post 37560” received 2nd place in the International Festival of Human Rights Art of Creative Unity Award 2020. Listen to the interview and Tiffany reading ‘working title’. https://lindaph.me/wp-content/uploads/2021/03/Tiffany-White.mp3 Key takeaways from this episode: Tiffany only started writing in March 2020 and out of 24 piece has had 12 placed Mentioned in this episode: International Festival of Human Rights Art of Creative Unity Award Field Post 37560 Meet Tiffany Catch up with Tiffany on her new website: https://firstsedition.com/ Never miss a show Subscribe on Apple Podcasts Join me on Soundcloud Listen on Spotify, Watch on YouTube If you have any general questions or comments for Ben or the show, leave a comment below and I’ll get back to you.

This is the annual G. Burroughs Mider Lecture. Speaker Andrew Singleton works on the genetic basis of neurological disorders including Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer ’ s disease, dystonia, ataxia, dementia with Lewy bodies, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). His team seeks to identify genetic variability that causes or contributes to disease and to use this knowledge to understand the underlying molecular processes. Most recently his work has expanded to the use of multimodal data in predicting disease. Dr. Singleton ’ s group discovered a number of genetic mutations that cause disease, including the alph...

CONCLUSION: MCI, specifically impairment in memory, attention/working memory, and executive domain, is present at the prodromal stage of PD. In addition, cognitive performance is correlated with motor symptoms in pPD. Our results reflect that cognitive profile, combined with motor symptoms, can help clinicians to identify individuals with pPD early, as those would be the optimal candidates for neuroprotective therapy.PMID:34821045 | DOI:10.1111/cns.13766

Chemosphere. 2021 Nov 22:132982. doi: 10.1016/j.chemosphere.2021.132982. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTRotenone is a neurotoxic pesticide widely used in agriculture. Dopaminergic neuron has long been considered as the target of rotenone. We recently reported that rotenone exposure also resulted in hippocampal and cortical neurodegeneration and cognitive dysfunction in mice. However, the mechanisms remain unknown. Here, we elucidated whether blood brain barrier (BBB) disruption and subsequent neuronal apoptosis mediated by microglial activation were involved in rotenone-elicited cognitive impairments. Results showed that ro...

Introduction: Previous genomic studies suggested that impaired autophagy could promote sarcoidosis (Pacheco et al. Trends Immunol 2020; 41: 286–299). Autophagy can be altered in nongranulomatous neurological disorders (NGND) such as frontotemporal dementia (FTD) or Parkinson’s disease (PD) in which the accumulation of proteins such as α-synuclein due to an mitophagy defect had been suggested.Methods: We performed a whole exome sequencing (WES) study of sarcoidosic patients in the SARCFAM (familial sarcoidosis) cohort (familial sarcoidosis). In order to distinguish potentially pathogenic variants, a genomi...

The yearly Longevity Week events in London are organized by Jim Mellon's network of allies, to promote the longevity industry and the concept of working towards therapies to treat aging as a medical condition. Sadly I could not attend this year, a combination of conflicting events in the US and it being too soon after conferences started up again post-COVID-19 to commit to international travel. Fortunately, one can still find a few notes on the proceedings online, and video of presentations will usually follow. This week was "Longevity Week" with numerous events organised in the UK on what we now call &q...

Biochem Soc Trans. 2021 Nov 23:BST20210719. doi: 10.1042/BST20210719. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTNeurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease, pose an increasingly severe burden for individuals and society in an ageing population. The causes and mechanisms of the diseases are poorly understood and as yet there are no effective treatments. Some of the molecular complexes involved in degeneration have been identified and electron microscopy has provided an essential tool in the investigations. The focus of this review is to show how electron microscopy has contributed historically to the...

The objective of this study is to compare 2 different rhythmic, high-intensive interventions, that is, rhythmic speech-language therapy (rSLT) versus rhythmic balance-mobility training (rBMT), against a no-therapy (NT) condition in patients with Parkinson's disease and against healthy controls (HCs) with regard to the change in or enhancement of cognitive abilities.METHODS: The 4 groups (rSLT: N = 16; rBMT: N = 10; NT: N = 18; and HC: N = 17) were matched for age, sex, and educational level and were tested in 6 cognitive domains: working memory, executive function, visuo-construction, episodic memory, attention, and word r...

This study nicely illustrates the importance of the cellular metabolic state of myeloid cells: it highlights that not only the availability of glucose, but also its channeling into different pathways (glycolysis versus glycogen synthesis) contributes to maintaining proper myeloid function. On the Ability of Redundant Blood Vessels to Lower Cardiovascular Mortality https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2021/11/on-the-ability-of-redundant-blood-vessels-to-lower-cardiovascular-mortality/ A few strategies offer the possibility of growing additional redundant blood vessels, though this is far from rigorously pr...
