    Economics as a moral tale

    https://aeon.co/essays/development-a...109e6-69418129

    Think of human development as a long journey. At the beginning, we live at the mercy of nature. Dependent on its bounty, we pray for rains and freedom from natural disasters and plagues. At the end of the journey, nature lives at our mercy. We use science and technology to release new wealth and remake the planet. Today, as humans implant themselves with microchips, install artificial organs and plan Mars colonies, we even aim for a ‘singularity’ that will lift us out of nature once and for all.
    My first job was at a hospital within a short walk of The Houses of Parliament. In the same area there was evidence of profound deprivation in the neighbourhoods I visited as a community physio. Nowadays, the housing is better, but we have many more people living and dying on the street.

    Self-reported free-living physical activity and executive control in young adults

    https://journals.plos.org/plosone/ar...l.pone.0209616

    In general, research studying the relationship between physical activity (PA) and cognitive function in healthy young adults falls into two broad categories: the study of near-term or single/acute effects of PA, and the effects of more long-term or chronic/intervention-style PA. While these categories capture the timing of PA relative to cognitive testing, the dichotomy begins to break down when considering more intermediate timescales that are longer than single bouts but that do not necessarily qualify as chronic. This is an important issue because the impact of PA on cognition has been shown to be quite varied depending on when the PA occurred [1]. For example, acute PA that occurred immediately prior to cognitive assessment has been shown to improve cognitive function [24], but when cognition is assessed during an acute bout of PA, the impacts appear to be negative [57]. At longer timescales, while increased voluntary chronic PA over the past 3 and 10 years has a positive impact on cognitive function [8,9], findings from shorter PA interventions in young adults (3 weeks to 2 months) have produced more equivocal results [1012].

    Relationship of resilience, anxiety and injuries in footballers: Structural equations analysis

    https://journals.plos.org/plosone/ar...l.pone.0207860

    Resilience is a psychological characteristic which enhances personal assets and protects individuals from potential negative effects of various stressors. While this topic has been considered in the separate context of sports injuries and anxiety states, these issues have rarely been considered together. The objective of this study is to analyse the association between motivation to overcome injuries in football and the state of anxiety caused by those injuries.

    Positive Psychology

    https://noijam.com/2018/11/27/positive-psychology/

    Positive Psychology is a relatively new domain in the field of psychology. While Psychology in the 20th century looked at the relief of suffering, positive psychology shifted its focus on improving wellbeing. Rather than trying to fix what is broken, it aims to foster human flourishing. On that note it aligns itself well with the current salutogenetic (health promoting) shift in medicine. This shift focusses on encouraging psychological traits and behaviours that have been shown to support resilience in the view of adverse life events, and as a consequence promote physical and psychological health (1,6,9).

    MRI scans shows promise in predicting dementia

    Brain changes evident in scans before memory, cognitive decline

    https://www.sciencedaily.com/release...1120125936.htm

    Although there are no drugs available yet to prevent or delay the onset of Alzheimer's disease, identifying those at high risk of developing dementia within the next few years could still be beneficial, the researchers said. People could make decisions on their financial and living arrangements while they are still in full control of their faculties.

    Using Twitter to Monitor Social Jet Lag

    https://neurosciencenews.com/social-...twitter-10214/

    Social jet lag–a syndrome related to the mismatch between the body’s internal clock and the realities of our daily schedules–has previously been tied to health problems. Now, researchers reporting in Current Biology on November 15 have found a way to measure social jet lag in people all over the country: by analyzing patterns of activity on the social media platform Twitter.
