2- THE USE OF SOCIAL NETWORKS IS RELATED TO THE CHANGES IN THE BRAIN IN ADOLESCENTS

The newspaper The New York Times posted a lengthy note on a topic that should worry many moms and dads: How does social media affect your children?

  • The article cites a study developed by neuroscientists at the University of North Carolina, who performed successive brain scans on students aged 12 to 15, a period in which brain development is particularly rapid.

  • Researchers have found that children who regularly check their social networks around the age of 12they have shown a different trajectory, in which their sensitivity to the social rewards of their peers has increased over time. Adolescents with lower RRSS participation followed the opposite path: lower interest in social rewards.

  • “Adolescents who frequently check their social media show quite dramatic changes in how their brains respond, which could have long-term consequences well into adulthood, and go some way to setting the stage for brain development over time. “.alerted a researcher.

4- THE MAMMAL THAT NEVER AGES AND MAY BE THE KEY TO THE TREATMENT OF CANCER

Naked mole rats, wrinkled, nearly hairless rodents with prominent teeth protruding from the mouth, and who live in Kenya, Somalia and Ethiopia, could be the key to improving human health, among other reasons, because they almost never develop cancer, a disease that one in two humans have a chance of contracting, this reported week the BBC.

  • These animals possess a mix of extraordinary characteristics that intrigue zoologists and medical researchers from all over the world.Despite their small size – measuring between 7.6 and 33 cm – naked mole rats live an average of 30 years, compared to two years for normal rats. Furthermore, they are resistant to chronic diseases, including diabetes, and have an intriguing reproductive system.

  • Immune to aging and pain, these strange creatures have long fascinated scientists. And now, research reveals they may hold the key to understanding a variety of human ailments, including cancer and aging.

  • According to one theory,Naked mole rats have a particularly effective form of an anti-cancer mechanism called cellular senescence, an evolutionary adaptation that prevents damaged cells from dividing uncontrollably and turning into cancer.

  • Another theory suggests that naked mole rats secrete a “super sugar” complex that prevents cells from clumping together and forming tumors.

5- 10 METERS DINOSAURS DOMINATED CHILEAN PATAGONIA 70 MILLION YEARS AGO

A group of researchers has discovered in Patagonia an extinct species of dinosaurs, relatives of today’s birds, that reached 10 meters in length and a ton in weight, and which dominated the food chain in the southernmost part of our world 70 million years ago, the University of Chile reported this week.

  • This was revealed by a study conducted by Chilean and American researchers, based on fossil pieces recovered in various paleontological campaigns between 2016 and 2020, near the Torres del Paine National Park.

  • Finding marks southernmost fossil record of ‘theropod’-type dinosaurs, the same order of dinosaurs as the popular species tyrannosaurus rex or velociraptors–, and it is a fundamental element in understanding which fauna inhabited the extreme south of the world towards the end of the Dinosaur Age, 66 million years ago.

“One of the main characteristics of the dinosaur found is that its body was probably completely covered in feathers, had curved claws on its feet, and contained an elongated snout with numerous small, rather peculiar teeth.” said University of Chile Paleontological Network researcher Jared Amudeo.
