It may be possible to increase the neuron reserve of the hippocampus – and improve preconditions for learning – by promoting neurogenesis via sustained aerobic exercise, such as running.Such aerobic exercise has positive effects on brain structure and function, for example the generation of neurons (neurogenesis) in the hippocampus, a brain structure important in learning.

Nuclear Energy Insider has produced a splendid resource with a new graphic Overview of European Nuclear Power Industry as a backgrounder for The Nuclear Power Plant Optimisation Summit Europe, being held in Brussels, Belgium.
Data is often thought to be constant and immutable. Defined by 1s and 0s, it never changes. But a school of thinking sees data as constantly adrift and mutating in response to surrounding forces.. Without processes in place to detect this, evolving data drift could wreak havoc on understanding, warn the experts..
Neiman Marcus was in the news a few years ago over a customer payment card breach. They’re back again with another breach. Neiman’s says this is not related and, this time, customer account data was accessed through compromised online account passwords.

Humans have a remarkable ability to integrate information from multiple memories and infer indirect relationships. In Europe neuroscientists from Donders Institute, Radboud University show that rhythmic brain waves or theta oscillations, engage and synchronise brain regions that support the integration of memories. In the USA researchers at Harvard John A Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences show that what ultimately causes the brain to fold, is a simple mechanical instability, associated with buckling.
The UK Border Agency has stopped processing applications for Tier 1 (Post Study Work) visas.
