  • Two USC researchers whose work linked air pollution to a greater risk of Alzheimer's disease and faster cognitive decline are seeing signs that cleaner air can make a difference in brain health. USC News
  • The US effort - which is estimated to cost US$ 6.6 billion up until 2027 - has focused on developing and applying new mapping technologies in its BRAIN (Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies) Initiative. Nature Medicine
  • Brain aneurysms cause almost 500,000 deaths worldwide each year, half of them in people under age 50, with women at greater risk. Consumer Health News | HealthDay
  • Along with Intel, researchers at IBM, HP, MIT, Purdue, and Stanford hope to leverage neuromorphic computing - circuits that mimic the human nervous system's biology - to develop supercomputers 1,000 times more powerful than any today. VentureBeat
  • The exponential progress of computing power from 1900 to 2013, with projections into 2025, where artificial intelligence is projected to parallel the processing capacity of the human brain. OECD
  • A massive brain drain is underway - more than 89,000 people, or 1.2% of Hong Kong's population, have left over the last 12 months, and the U.K. government is expecting at least another 200,000 emigres under its BNO visa scheme over the next five years. Taiwan News
  • Researchers at MIT's McGovern Institute for Brain Research have discovered a bacterial enzyme that they say could expand scientists' CRISPR toolkit, making it easy to cut and edit RNA with the kind of precision that, until now, has only been available for DNA editing.

  • Researchers from across the UK will investigate everything from brain fog to ongoing breathlessness, using a new technique to detect hidden lung damage. BBC News
  • Research published in the medical journal Gut in June 2020 found that following the Mediterranean Diet may help the aging process by lowering inflammation markers and increasing both brain function and gut health. Well+Good
  • Older adults (OA) with MCI have a higher risk of developing dementia, particularly Alzheimer's disease, compared to healthy OA and show more brain neuropathology linked to dementia in postmortem studies and in studies with cerebrospinal fluid analysis. Frontiers
  • Researchers from Tel Aviv University have 3D printed a first-of-its-kind glioblastoma tumor using patient cells that could empower new methods to improve the treatment of brain cancer. 3D Printing Industry
