Reactivating aging stem cells in the brain

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension, neuroscience

As people get older, their neural stem cells lose the ability to proliferate and produce new neurons, leading to a decline in memory function. Researchers at the University of Zurich have now discovered a mechanism linked to stem cell aging—and how the production of neurons can be reactivated.

Suppressor genes linked to less cancer and longer lifespan found in whales

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, genetics, life extension

A trio of researchers with ICAEV, Universidad Austral de Chile, and the University of Liverpool, respectively, have found suppressor genes linked to longevity and less cancer in two species of whales. In their paper published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B, Daniela Tejada-Martinez, João Pedro de Magalhães and Juan C. Opazo, describe their genetic study of longevity in cetaceans and what they learned.

Medical Diagnosis Software With Just A Smart Phone — The Future Is Arriving

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, health, mobile phones, privacy, robotics/AI, wearables

Monitoring your vital signs is becoming easier and easier these days, critical if you want to keep track of your general health and well being, and incredibly useful if you want to see how a life style, or dietary, change is playing out. In this video I look at two new companies that are utilising mobile phones to measure a whole raft of biometric data, simply and easily, and clinically tested to deliver medical-grade accuracy. And these are just first generation versions, who knows where this will take us, and what we will be able to monitor quickly and easily in the next few years.


Medical Diagnosis Software With Just A Smart PhoneIn the near future, your phone or a wearable of some description, will constantly be able to monitor all your health signs continuously ready to alert you to any worrying signs, and what they can do today is just the beginning of where we are heading.
