- Protein Blobs Linked to Alzheimer’s Affect Aging in All Cells
- Acting Out Dreams Predicts Parkinson’s and Other Brain Diseases
- Art and music therapy seem to help with brain disorders. Scientists want to know why
- A brain circuit tied to emotion may lead to better treatments for Parkinson's disease
- Doctors treat Parkinson’s with a novel brain cell transplant
Protein buildups like those seen around neurons in Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other brain diseases occur in all aging cells, a new study suggests. Learning their significance may reveal new…
A new device can detect Parkinson's disease just from breathing patterns. The device, developed by a team led by Dina Katabi of MIT, employs a neural network to discern the presence and severity of…
Arts therapies appear to ease brain disorders from Parkinson's to PTSD. Now, artists and scientists have launched an effort to understand how these treatments change the brain.
Epigenetic changes linked to Parkinson's disease are different in men and women, according to a new postmortem analysis of brain neurons.
The symptoms of Parkinson's disease can vanish briefly in the face of stress or a strong emotion. Now scientists are searching for a treatment based on this phenomenon, a form of the placebo effect.
«To Stauffer, this behavior is one more piece of evidence that people with Parkinson's still do have an intact movement circuit in the brain, a pathway that is only switched on in certain situations. "If you can somehow isolate the pathway that enables that and turn it on," Stauffer says, it might offer a new approach to treating Parkinson's.»
Enacted dreams could be an early sign of Parkinson’s disease
In a secret experiment, researchers replaced the dysfunctional brain cells of a Parkinson’s patient with the progeny of an extraordinary type of stem cell.
The authors used single-cell genomics to profile thousands of human dopamine neurons and identify one uniquely Parkinson’s disease-susceptible population, which was enriched for genetic risk for…
How does Refind curate?
It’s a mix of human and algorithmic curation, following a number of steps:
- We monitor 10k+ sources and 1k+ thought leaders on hundreds of topics—publications, blogs, news sites, newsletters, Substack, Medium, Twitter, etc.
- In addition, our users save links from around the web using our Save buttons and our extensions.
- Our algorithm processes 100k+ new links every day and uses external signals to find the most relevant ones, focusing on timeless pieces.
- Our community of active users gets the most relevant links every day, tailored to their interests. They provide feedback via implicit and explicit signals: open, read, listen, share, mark as read, read later, «More/less like this», etc.
- Our algorithm uses these internal signals to refine the selection.
- In addition, we have expert curators who manually curate niche topics.
The result: lists of the best and most useful articles on hundreds of topics.
How does Refind detect «timeless» pieces?
We focus on pieces with long shelf-lives—not news. We determine «timelessness» via a number of metrics, for example, the consumption pattern of links over time.
How many sources does Refind monitor?
We monitor 10k+ content sources on hundreds of topics—publications, blogs, news sites, newsletters, Substack, Medium, Twitter, etc.
Can I submit a link?
Indirectly, by using Refind and saving links from outside (e.g., via our extensions).
How can I report a problem?
When you’re logged-in, you can flag any link via the «More» (...) menu. You can also report problems via email to email@example.com
