Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation improves working memory study shows

first_imgReviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)May 16 2019Magnetic stimulation of the brain improves working memory, offering a new potential avenue of therapy for individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia, according to new research from the Duke University School of Medicine.Healthy younger and older adult participants who received a therapy called repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) performed better on a memory task than during an rTMS-like placebo in the study, which was published here in PLoS One. Source:Duke Department of NeurologyJournal reference:Beynel, L. et al. (2019) Online repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation during working memory in younger and older adults: A randomized within-subject comparison.

It’s a key component of day-to-day tasks like driving to a new location, making a recipe, or following instructions. Individuals with Alzheimer’s disease, which will more than double by 2050, and other forms of dementia, experience progressive loss of working memory and other forms of cognition, leading to a greater risk of injury or death and reducing their ability to function without home care.Twenty-nine young adults and 18 older adults completed the study, which involved trying to remember and then reproduce a series of letters in alphabetical order. The authors applied either online high-frequency (5Hz) rTMS, or a placebo-like sham over the left prefrontal cortex, an area on the brain responsible for higher executive function. Participants of all ages who received rTMS performed better than those who received the rTMS-like placebo. This study relies on highly individualized parameters, from the selection of the stimulated target, based on fMRI activation, to the selection of the difficulty, titrated according to subjects’ performance. Now that we have shown that these specific parameters can improve performance in healthy subjects, we will be able to extend it to populations with memory deficits.”Lysianne Beynel, PhD, postdoctoral associate in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences Interestingly, we only saw this effect during when participants were trying their hardest, suggesting a real use-it-or-lose it principle at work here. Contrary to much of what we hear, aging brains have a remarkable capability to remember past events and to use that information in a flexible manner. The brain stimulation applied in our study shows that older adults benefited just as much as the young.”Simon W. Davis, PhD, co-authorlast_img read more

German car sales shake off emissionstest blues

first_imgGerman new car registrations jumped in May, in a sign that auto manufacturers might be recovering from a months-long slump © 2019 AFP A total of 332,962 cars hit the road for the first time last month, 9.1 percent more than in May 2018, the KBA transport authority said in a statement.Between January and May, sales gained 1.7 percent to a little more than 1.5 million vehicles.Registrations slumped in the second half of 2018 as carmakers struggled with new EU emissions tests, known as the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP), that took effect in September.Manufacturers have repeatedly vowed to get to grips with the tougher procedure, introduced after Volkswagen admitted in 2015 to cheating regulatory tests on 11 million diesel cars worldwide.A break-down of the manufacturers’ results showed that sales of VW’s own-brand cars fell 4.6 percent in May, but still made up almost one in five new registrations with 60,906 vehicles.High-end BMW added 41.9 percent, at 26,995 cars, and rival Mercedes-Benz 9.5 percent, with 29,793.VW subsidiary Porsche enjoyed slower growth, at 3.9 percent, while stablemate Audi shed 4.3 percent.At 33.3 percent of new sales, diesel-fuelled cars remained well below the market share they enjoyed before VW’s “dieselgate” scandal.Just 1.4 percent of registrations were for electric cars and 5.8 percent for hybrids, the KBA said.Ministers agreed last week to extend a subsidy for battery-powered vehicles to the end of 2020, hoping to give the technology a boost with drivers. German car market surges as manufacturers face emissions crunch New car registrations in Germany jumped sharply in May, official data showed Tuesday, suggesting the powerhouse sector for Europe’s top economy was recovering from a months-long bout of the blues.center_img Explore further Citation: German car sales shake off emissions-test blues (2019, June 4) retrieved 17 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2019-06-german-car-sales-emissions-test-blues.html This document is subject to copyright.

HRD panel recommends 4year undergraduate degree programme on lines of scrapped FYUP

first_imgThe existing NEP was framed in 1986 and revised in 1992. The controversial Four Year Undergraduate Programme (FYUP), which was scrapped in 2014, may make a come back as a panel constituted by the HRD Ministry has recommended the programme among undergraduate courses reforms for the new National Education Policy. The ministry officials, however, maintained that the committee has submitted its draft and no final decision has been taken yet. The draft of the new National Education Policy (NEP), formulated by a panel led by former ISRO chief K Kasturirangan, was handed over to HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank. He took charge as the Union Human Resource Development minister on Friday. The panel has recommended reintroduction of the four-year course as part of the undergraduate reforms.“Both three-year and four-year courses will be allowed to co-exist, but with multiple exit and entry options. The four-year programme will provide for greater rigour and allow students to conduct research optionally,” the draft said. “Students will graduate with a four-year Liberal Arts Science Education degree with Honours, or may graduate with a B Sc, BA, B Com or B Voc after completing three years with a suitable completion of credits within their subject,” it said. The four-year programme, the BLA or BLE in the chosen major and minors, will provide students the opportunity to experience the full range of liberal arts education. The three-year programme will lead to a Bachelors degree. Both programmes may lead to a degree “with Research”, if the student completes a rigorous research project as specified by the Higher Education Institute (HEI). HEIs may choose to call their three-year undergraduate degree a Bachelor of Arts, or Science, or Vocation, or the appropriate professional field, the draft report suggested.What was Four Year Undergraduate Programme (FYUP)The Four Year Undergraduate Programme (FYUP) introduced by the Delhi University under the regime of previous Vice Chancellor Dinesh Singh was scrapped by former HRD minister Smriti Irani. The panel has also recommended an overhaul of the teacher education system with the introduction of the four year programme.“Teacher preparation for all school stages will be offered only in multidisciplinary universities through a four year programme, with the curricula and processes being revamped to address current issues with teacher preparation. “Institutions currently offering the two year programme will either transition to this mode or be phased out; no new two year programmes will be given recognition,” it said. The existing NEP was framed in 1986 and revised in 1992. A new education policy was part of the Bharatiya Janata Party’s manifesto ahead of the 2014 general election. Apart from Kasturirangan, the committee had eight members, including mathematician Manjul Bhargava. The experts also took into account the report of a panel formed by former HRD minister Smriti Irani and headed by ex-cabinet secretary T S R Subramanian. education Published on policy June 02, 2019 COMMENT SHARE SHARE EMAIL SHARE COMMENTSlast_img read more

Boks to split resources for tough Rugby Championship schedule

first_img“So with the hand we got dealt, we have to split our resources. However, it also gives us chance to work with some fringe players that we haven’t had a chance to work with.”Erasmus said there are only a few members of his Bok squad who are absolute certainties to start in their positions, and so doesn’t want to use the label of a ‘B’ team for the match against the Wallabies.”You will see when the side is announced for Australia, it isn’t an A or B side, I can give you my word. It will be two competitive sides, because we want to win both games (against Australia and New Zealand),” he added.”When you look at it, what is the difference between Lukhanyo Am and Jesse Kriel? What is the difference between Beast Mtawarira and Steven Kitshoff? What is the difference between Trevor Nyakane and Frans Malherbe? “What is the difference between Eben Etzebeth and Franco Mostert? Or Franco Mostert and Lood de Jager? There are very few players where you can say this one is streets ahead of this one.”That’s the nice thing at this stage, there are four or five positions where you can say this guy is clear cut, first choice. Those first clear-cut choices will probably go to New Zealand (next week).”After their clash in New Zealand, the Boks travel to Salta to face Argentina on Aug. 10, before a home meeting against the South Americans in a one-off test in Pretoria a week later.
