This spider's hairdoo resembles Trump's a bit I would say but the spider's is a tad more clean cut perhaps. :)

Some promising research for neurodegenerative diseases.

Two Drugs Identified That Could Halt The Progression Of Neurodegenerative Diseases

This is of some concern that's for sure.

The problem, doctors say, is that NPH often isn’t correctly identified. In Canada alone, doctors estimate that around 15,000 patients may be misdiagnosed with a more serious condition, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, that leaves them bedridden or in nursing homes.

Here's a story about research at a site in California that suggest humans might have been in the Americas 100,000 years earlier than previously believed, which is a huge jump back if true.

Could this 'artificial womb' be the solution to the abortion debate? Would it be possible or desirable to complete terminated pregnancies in such a womb and then put the infants up for adoption?

Wow, this would be a really amazing development if it pans out. Imagine waking up with your brain in a new body.

And if they sort of practice this procedure on brains that are currently cryogenically frozen, I wonder how they choose which one gets the first go.

Whats that Shaw quote 'youth is wasted on the young'
Well not no more.. Get yourself a young body and do it all again knowing what not to do.

ryan, too many "not what to do's" for me, I don't think my brain could handle that many 'nots'.

As much as my body isn't very good it's a bit better than my brain so maybe I'll just get the body frozen and someone else's brain. :D

Creates a lot of possibilities for drama: dying old person wakes up one day in a strong new body, which he then learns is/was his grandson.

Dying, greedy rich tyrant from country A assassinates youthful, well-coiffed tyrant from country B to transplant his brain into that body and to take over country B (or maybe to sit back and collect the guaranteed income offered by country B). :o

Heh, I'm not sure I'd want to be the first in this case, though. I mean, Ted's not going anywhere in a hurry, might as well wait to see how successful these transplants are before diving in headfirst.
