Share an interesting nugget

After introductions, we'll share "nuggets". Give a short report on a journal, magazine, or news article, describe an experiment, tell a personal story, invent a possible scenario, ask a question, etc. Nuggets should be relevant to neuroscience and/or society or a combination of the two.

    It turned out to be a nice evening. Although our group was much smaller than last time, I felt we were more focused and organized that last time. Conversation flowed more easily and for the most part, stayed within the topic of Alzheimer's and aging as discussed earlier in the evening. Yet, it was nice to add in the autism issue.

    Five people showed up, and that had its advantages. A very good group.

    Hi Gina.
    Although I am ore interested in the ACTUALITY of nutrition than in its implications, I'll be happy to hear what you have to say on the subject.

    At this time, 8/19 sounds good. I want to finish my nugget with Mentalfloss where I mentioned an interest in the possible relation between Alzheimer's and the aging process. Since I also love the study of nutrition in conjuction with the brain sciences, I want to add how diet and nutrition may also have an impact on the effects of who may get Alzheimer's. There has been some studies done where nutrition plays a big part in feeding the brain important nutrients through the aging process and delaying dementia, particularly nutrients obtained from food sources and not synthetic form as in vitamin tablets.

    Thanks for suggesting this, Simon. I was busy with visitors. I'll plan to be the moderator. There have been some interesting recent news items relevant to our group's topic so I'm sure we'll have a lively discussion.

    I have suggested a similar format for the next meeting after talking with Alice. While some improvement may be warranted, the current format of discussion lets each person participate and contribute.
