"Brain Washing" Brains Sweep Themselves Clean Of Toxins During Sleep - While the brain sleeps, it clears out harmful toxins, a process that may reduce the risk of Alzheimer's, researchers say. During sleep, the flow of cerebrospinal fluid in the brain increases dramatically, washing away harmful waste proteins that build up between brain cells during waking hours, a study of mice found.

Brains Sweep Themselves Clean Of Toxins During Sleep. While mice sleep, their brain cells shrink, allowing cerebrospinal fluid to flow easily around them. The fluid can then clear away toxins. This finding appears to offer the best explanation yet of why animals and people need sleep.
During sleep, the flow of cerebrospinal fluid in the brain increases, washing away harmful waste proteins that build up between brain cells during waking hours, a study of mice found. The results appear to offer the best explanation yet of why animals and people need sleep.

The Food Forum convened a public workshop on February 22–23, 2012, to explore current and emerging knowledge of the human microbiome, its role in human health, its interaction with the diet, and the translation of new research findings into tools and products that improve the nutritional quality of the food supply. This report summarizes the presentations and discussions that took place during the workshop.11The workshop was organized by an independent planning committee whose role was limited to designing the workshop program and identifying goals, topics, and speakers. This workshop summary has been prepared by the rapporteurs as a factual summary of the presentations and discussions that took place at the workshop. Statements, recommendations, and opinions expressed are those of individual presenters and participants and are not necessarily endorsed or verified by the Food Forum or the National Academies; they should not be construed as reflecting any group consensus. Box O-1 provides definitions of the human microbiome and other key terms used throughout this report.
In 1967, U.S. Surgeon General William H. Stewart told a White House gathering of health officers that “it was time to close the book on infectious diseases and shift all national attention (and dollars) to what he termed ‘the New Dimensions’ of health: chronic diseases” (Garrett, 1994; Stewart, 1967). In the ensuing years, Americans became intimately acquainted with a range of emerging infections including Legionnaire’s disease, toxic shock syndrome, AIDS, Lyme disease, West Nile encephalitis, and SARS. Complacency has given way to concern regarding a spectrum of microbial threats—including antimicrobial-resistant pathogens, emergent and reemergent diseases with pandemic potential, and outbreaks of exotic viruses such as monkeypox—propelled by a seemingly inevitable convergence of biological, environmental, ecological, and socioeconomic factors (IOM, 2003a). At the same time, the association of various chronic diseases with microbial infection (e.g, peptic ulcer with Helicobacter pylori, liver cancer with hepatitis B and C viruses, and Lyme arthritis with Borrelia burg-dorferi) has deepened respect for the destructive potential of infectious agents (IOM, 2004).

Obesity is one of the most pressing public health disorders in the United States and other westernized societies. Its prevalence is increasing worldwide and it is associated with concerning medical comorbidities, most notably the metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes [1-4]. Hence, innovative research that elucidates the causes of obesity has become an increasingly important focus for the National Institutes of Health. A challenge to this mission, however, is that fact that obesity is a “complex disorder.” For most individuals in the population, obesity results from multiple genetic and environmental factors that may interact with, or may be correlated with, each other. Genes operate additively and through gene-gene interactions to influence body weight .

100 billion nerve cells. 100 trillion synapses, dozens of neurotransmitters. This "strength in numbers" provides your brain's raw material. Over time, our experiences create patterns in signal type and strength. These patterns of activity explain how, at the cellular level, our brains code our thoughts, memories, skills and sense of who we are. This positron emission tomography (PET) scan shows typical patterns of brain activity associated with: Reading words, hearing words, thinking about words, saying words. Activity is highest in red areas and then decreases through the other colors of the rainbow from yellow to blue-violet. Specific activity patterns change throughout life as we meet new people, have new experiences and acquire new skills. The patterns also change when Alzheimer's disease or a related disorder disrupts nerve cells and their connections to one another.

What is disengagement theory?
Cindy Gonzalez-Chapter 9 pin 1 This pin relates to the chapter because it discusses disengagement theory vs activity theory. The website discusses how for activity theory states that the older population are able to stay active despite the views of society that as you age you shouldn't be as active.
