Hvad er extrinsic connectivity (i hjernen)?#
Hvad er axonal bundles
Er hjernens funktion afhængig af fysiske forbindelse mellem axonerne?#
**Groupwise Structural Parcellation of the Cortex: A Sound Approach Based on Logistic Models**
Current theories hold that brain function is highly related to long-range physical connections through axonal bundles, namely extrinsic connectivity. However, obtaining a groupwise cortical parcellation based on extrinsic connectivity remains challenging. Current parcellation methods are computationally expensive; need tuning of several parameters or rely on ad-hoc constraints.
Is there a common structural brain connectivity network for human populations?#
**Extracting the Groupwise Core Structural Connectivity Network: Bridging Statistical and Graph-Theoretical Approaches**
Finding the common structural brain connectivity network for a given population is an open problem, crucial for current neuro-science. Recent evidence suggests there's a tightly connected network shared between humans. Obtaining this network will, among many advantages , allow us to focus cognitive and clinical analyses on common connections, thus increasing their statistical power.
How often can neuroscience studies be reproduced?#
**Is neuroscience facing up to statistical power?**
It has been demonstrated that the statistical power of many neuroscience studies is very low, so that the results are unlikely to be robustly reproducible. How are neuroscientists and the journals in which they publish responding to this problem? Here I review the sample size justifications provided for all 15 papers published in one recent issue of the leading journal Nature Neuroscience.
**The Diverse Club: The Integrative Core of Complex Networks**
A complex system can be represented and analyzed as a network, where nodes represent the units of the network and edges represent connections between those units. For example, a brain network represents neurons as nodes and axons between neurons as edges. In many networks, some nodes have a disproportionately high number of edges.

#Birds in cities:- Are urban birds more often divorced?
Why birds in new suburbs get ‘divorced’
Urban sprawl is kicking a group of songbirds called “avoiders” out of their territory, forcing divorce, and stunting their ability to find new mates and reproduce successfully, even after relocating. “The hidden cost of suburban development for these birds is that we force them to do things that natural selection wouldn’t have them do otherwise,” says lead author John Marzluff, a professor of wil

New treatment for a rare form of encephalitis
Anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis is an inflammatory disease that affects the central nervous system. It is a rare autoimmune disease that results in the body producing antibodies against the NMDA receptor, a protein that plays an important role in signal transduction in the brain. Using a new treatment regimen, researchers have recorded significant progress in treating the disease, including in pat

#Childrens food:- Why do parents buy frozen dinners for their children?
Parents purchase frozen dinners for more than convenience
Processed foods are higher in calories, sugar, sodium, and saturated fat than natural foods, but prepackaged, processed meals remain a popular choice for many consumers because they reduce the energy, time, and cooking skills needed to prepare food. Having items like boxed entrees and frozen dinners available at home can contribute to a poor diet, which led researchers to examine reasons why paren
#Tomatillo:- How old is the nightshade plant family (tomato family)?
Check out the incredibly rare fossil of an ancient tomatillo
Delicate fossil remains of tomatillos found in Patagonia, Argentina, show that this branch of the nightshade family existed 52 million years ago—long before the dates previously ascribed to these species. Tomatillos, ground cherries, and husk tomatoes—members of the genus Physalis —are unusual because they have papery, lantern-like husks, known to botanists as inflated calyces that grow after fer

Latest Science News -- ScienceDaily
Solar storms could spark soils at moon's poles
Powerful solar storms can charge up the soil in frigid, permanently shadowed regions near the lunar poles, and may possibly produce 'sparks' that could vaporize and melt the soil, perhaps as much as meteoroid impacts, according to new research. This alteration may become evident when analyzing future samples from these regions that could hold the key to understanding the history of the moon and so
