Surviving the Windrush scandal
“I had this knot in my stomach constantly, and a void inside my head,” says Michael Braithwaite, as he remembers the days and weeks following the news that he had lost his job and even faced deportation from a country in which he’d lived almost his entire life. “To think that maybe tomorrow I would not be with my family, or in a place I love, was devastating. I used to have bad nightmares. They were always very vivid. I’d be stuck in some unknown place, it was never the same, waking up not knowing what was going to happen. “I had to hold onto my soul, my spirit, me as a person. I just ha...

In MS, disintegrating brain lesions may indicate the disease is getting worse

Now, University at Buffalo researchers are finding that it may be the atrophy or disappearance of these lesions into cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) that is a better indicator of who will develop disability.

Ancient genomes from Iceland reveal the making of a human population
Opportunities to directly study the founding of a human population and its subsequent evolutionary history are rare. Using genome sequence data from 27 ancient Icelanders, we demonstrate that they are a combination of Norse, Gaelic, and admixed individuals. We further show that these ancient Icelanders are markedly more similar to their source populations in Scandinavia and the British-Irish Isles than to contemporary Icelanders, who have been shaped by 1100 years of extensive genetic drift. Finally, we report evidence of unequal contributions from the ancient founders to the contemporary Icelandic gene pool. These results...

There’s no question that exercise is good for the body, and there is growing evidence that staying physically active can help slow the normal declines in brain function that come with age.
