first_img Sharing is caring! Share The researchers looked for tiny protrusions from brain cells called dendritic spinesTaking cocaine can change the structure of the brain within hours in what could be the first steps of drug addiction, according to US researchers.Animal tests, reported in the journal Nature Neuroscience, showed new structures linked to learning and memory began to grow soon after the drug was taken.Mice with the most brain changes showed a greater preference for cocaine.Experts described it as the brain “learning addiction”.The team at University of California, Berkeley and UC San Francisco looked for tiny protrusions from brain cells called dendritic spines. They are heavily implicated in memory formation.Cocaine huntingThe place or environment that drugs are taken plays an important role in addiction.In the experiments, the mice were allowed to explore freely two very different chambers – each with a different smell and surface texture.Once they had picked a favourite they were injected with cocaine in the other chamber.A type of laser microscopy was used to look inside the brains of living mice to hunt for the dendritic spines.More new spines were produced when the mice were injected with cocaine than with water, suggesting new memories being formed around drug use.The difference could be detected two hours after the first dose.Researcher Linda Wilbrecht, assistant professor of psychology and neuroscience at UC Berkeley, said: “Our images provide clear evidence that cocaine induces rapid gains in new spines, and the more spines the mice gain, the more they show they learned about the drug.“This gives us a possible mechanism for how drug use fuels further drug-seeking behaviour.“These drug-induced changes in the brain may explain how drug-related cues come to dominate decision making in a human drug user.”Commenting on the research, Dr Gerome Breen, from the Institute of Psychiatry at King’s College London, told the BBC: “Dendritic spine development is particularly important in learning and memory.“This study gives us a solid understanding of how addiction occurs – it shows us how addiction is learned by the brain.“But it is not immediately apparent how useful this would be in developing a therapy.”BBC News HealthLifestyle Cocaine ‘rapidly changes the brain’ by: – August 26, 2013 Tweetcenter_img Share 19 Views   no discussions Sharelast_img read more

He was traveling on his private helicopter from Orange County, where he lived, to his Mamba Sports Academy in Thousand Oaks. The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are leading the investigation into the crash. Kurt Keetz, a pilot who said he flew Bryant from 2014 to 2016, told the Los Angeles Times he suspects the crash was most likely caused by bad weather rather than engine trouble. “The likelihood of a catastrophic twin-engine failure on that aircraft – it just doesn’t happen,” he said.

first_imgSr. Rosemary Lee, formerly Sr. Damien Marie, age 96 of the Srs. of St. Francis in Oldenburg, died Thursday, August 30, 2018 at the convent.  Born July 25, 1922 in Indianapolis, she is the daughter of Rose (Nee: Zimmer) and Joseph Lee, the youngest of 4 children.  She wrote in her autobiography that she “loved sports because my brothers did and I was always in the cheering section for them.” She, herself, loved playing softball and two-handed touch football.It was at St. Mary’s Academy in Indianapolis she met the Franciscan Sisters and their example that had a lasting impression on her.  Sr. Rosemary’s freshman retreat made her think about prayer and the direction her life might take.  She felt she could always talk to the Sisters, who would answer her questions and assured her of continued prayers.  Perhaps that is what led her to convent in 1940.Sr. Rosemary taught elementary school for 35 years in Indiana and Ohio before spending the last 18 years in the mailroom at Marian University in Indianapolis.  The following is an excerpt from a feature story in the Marian Magnet: “Anyone who knows Sr. Rosemary Lee might think of her as the Master Sergeant of her domain – the mailroom.  When students, faculty and staff members want to be sure their postage is correct, envelopes sealed or packages weighed accurately, they venture to Sr. Rosemary’s camp where they are sure to receive her reliable service and one-of-a-kind greetings.”While at Marian, it was obvious the she dearly loved the students.  Friends describe her as pleasant, a woman of few words, but with a subtle humor and one who devoted much time to working for the poor.  Other interests included crocheting, collecting stamps and collecting miniature international flags.  Sr. Rosemary made beautiful hooked rugs as specialty and religiously attended a local craft fair the day after Thanksgiving.She is survived by nieces and nephews.  In addition to her parents, she is also preceded in death by brothers Clarence, Anthony and George Lee.  Visitation is Wednesday, September 5th, from 1 -3 p.m. at the convent.  Funeral services follow at 3 p.m. with Rev. Robert Weakley O.F.M. officiating and burial will follow in the convent cemetery.  Memorials may be made to the Srs. of St. Francis, P.O.

first_img Rodgers gave his full backing to striker Balotelli over the penalty furore which blew up in the 1-0 win over Besiktas in the Europa League. He supported the Italy international stepping in front of Jordan Henderson, captain on the night and designated pre-match taker, even if it looked unseemly at the time. But when it came to Balotelli’s overall effort during his substitute appearance, Rodgers was unimpressed. Rodgers responded “No, not really no”, when asked if he was satisfied with the 24-year-old’s stint against the Turkish side, which lasted half an hour. Rodgers said: “We need to ensure that whatever level of the game we are playing at we have everyone working as a team and once we got the penalty he stops working. “So he needs to improve on that facet of his game to play in his position, rather than standing on the side of the football field.” Rodgers, speaking to national newspapers, said of Balotelli : “He has contributed against Besiktas, he has got the penalty and scored the goal but that is what he is paid to do. “He needs to keep that efficiency in his game and show that he can affect the team whether he is asked to play from the bench or from the start. In a different country and a different style of football that (goal) would be all that matters but in this team there is more to it than that.” Injured captain Steven Gerrard, as a guest television pundit, called Balotelli “mischievous” and “disrespectful” for taking on penalty duties. Rodgers said Balotelli – who has scored 27 out of 29 from the spot in his career – was following the long-established order agreed earlier in the season. Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has criticised Mario Balotelli’s work rate and told him to step up his contribution. “There has probably been a lot more of a drama been made out of it than it actually was,” said the Reds boss. “With the players who were initially on the pitch last night Jordan was our nominated taker. “But if Jordan and Steven and Mario are on the pitch at the same time we would normally have Steven and Mario as the penalty-takers. “History shows he (Balotelli) has scored nearly 30 penalties in big games so he is an outstanding penalty-taker, but none of them were on (at the start) so you have to nominate someone. “Jordan was happy enough to take it but he gave it to Mario.” Henderson, Balotelli and Daniel Sturridge were all involved in discussions before the 85th-minute penalty against the Turkish visitors, and Gerrard’s post-match comments fanned the flames with Rodgers admitting that is something he will deal with within the team. “That is my job to manage that, it is what I do behind the scenes every day,” he added. “You see from the way the team has been playing recently the respect and commitment they show for each other. “I always assign responsibility every single game and I think this is the first time that has reared its head. “I think there was a bit of a kerfuffle around it because they just wanted to make sure he (Balotelli) was happy to take it but that was it really. “The only thing I would say on it is I don’t like the etiquette – you don’t like to see four or five players around a football looking to take it. “It was maybe more the etiquette which was not as we would have liked but we got the end result.” Henderson’s role in the affair has been criticised by some who claim it portrays him as weak, allowing Balotelli to step in ahead of him. Rodgers admits authority is something which comes with experience but he supports the England midfielder in the job he is doing – even if he has again raised doubts about whether he will get the job full-time when Gerrard leaves for Los Angeles Galaxy in the summer. Asked what Henderson needs in order to add gravitas to his on-field persona, the Reds boss said: “Just time. People see him as that automatic next captain but that is not necessarily the case. “He is a young player and you have to go steady with Jordan. Everyone is trying to catapult him into the next Steven Gerrard and he is not that. “I have said it many times he is not that type of player. Jordan is a real honest boy, a hard-working player, a great team player. “Steven is a totally different player to that. He (Henderson) is still young but it is not automatic he will be the next captain but at this moment in time, when Steven doesn’t play, he is working that role very well.” The fact Balotelli actually scored the penalty and Liverpool won the first leg of their last 32 tie has almost been lost in the fall-out. The Italian has now scored four times since his £16million summer move from AC Milan, including two winners and an assist for the winner in his last three matches.

first_img The 18-year-old, signed from Charlton for £3.5million this summer, was expected to go out on loan but, having done well in pre-season, was handed his Barclays Premier League debut against the hard-running Walters last weekend. He acquitted himself well in the 1-0 victory and will make his home bow against Bournemouth on Monday as he continues to keep out Alberto Moreno, a Europa League winner with Sevilla just 15 months ago but who has seen his £12million move to Anfield turn sour over the last year. Liverpool defender Joe Gomez received the seal of approval from Stoke’s Jon Walters last week and has impressed manager Brendan Rodgers since arriving in the summer. “For a player of 18 to make his Premier League debut away at Stoke against an outstanding player in Jon Walters, with the experience he has, and cope as well as he did was impressive,” Rodgers said. “I thanked Jon after the game for giving him that experience and he spoke highly of him.” What is even more admirable is Gomez is a centre-back who has also operated on the right, so being thrown in on the opposite flank ahead of an established left-back speaks volumes not only about his talent but also Moreno’s short-comings. “I felt comfortable (putting him in the team) as he had played games and was managed well at Charlton,” Rodgers added. “I wanted to assess where his pathway lay in terms of whether he needed a loan or needed to stay here and very quickly he showed me he could be a really important member of the squad. “He can play in many positions, centre-half being the main one, but he has the flexibility and qualities to play at full-back so he is definitely a player who will add great value to our squad. “What struck me when I met him was his maturity. He recognises his opportunity. “When he was 15 or 16 he had the chance to move to bigger clubs than Charlton but he wanted to stay. Press Association “He then had a decision to make in the summer with a number of high-profile clubs wanted to take him but he felt his best opportunity to develop and improve was coming to Liverpool. “He has got into the team and I am sure there will be moments along the way when we need to manage him, but he knows there is a lot to learn yet. “It is about assessing and managing where he is at.” last_img read more
