[03/04/14] Does sleep help memories stick? Many lifestyle choices have the potential to affect your cognitive abilities. In recent years, various researchers have found that a habit that most of us take for granted — sleep — may affect our memory in noticeable ways. Memories and the entorhinal cortex In a recent study from the journal Nature Neuroscience, UCLA neurophysics professor Mayank R. Mehta found that a brain area called the entorhinal cortex plays a key role in memory consolidation during sleep. Memory consolidation is the process that stores and reinforces long-term memories so you can draw on them later. While the mice in Mehta's study slept, their entorhinal cortices displayed activation patterns very similar to patterns that occurred when the mice remembered something during the day. This nighttime activity, in turn, spurred neural activity in the hippocampus. The hippocampus has often been considered a central player in long-term memory consolidation during sleep, and this study shows that the processes may be far more complex than previously thought. Sleep may provide direction for Alzheimer’s research Not only can Mehta’s research help us understand how we strengthen memories during sleep, but it may also provide clues for investigating Alzheimer's disease — which begins in the entorhinal cortex and often involves impaired sleep. Of course, human brains differ greatly from those of mice, and further research will be needed to truly understand the entorhinal cortex's role in memory consolidation. Sleep well and stay sharp This study reminds us of the complex ties between lifestyle habits and cognition — and reaffirms the importance of getting enough sleep each night. With many new studies continuing to find evidence that our brains are hard at work during the night, most scientists agree that getting a decent night’s rest is a good idea.

Why, who makes much of a miracle?
As to me I know of nothing else but miracles,
Whether I walk the streets of Manhattan,
Or dart my sight over the roofs of houses toward the sky,
Or wade with naked feet along the beach just in the edge
of the water,
Or stand under trees in the woods,
Or talk by day with anyone I love, or sleep in the bed
at night with anyone I love,
Or sit at the table at dinner with the rest,
Or look at strangers opposite me riding in the car,
Or watch honeybees busy around the hive
of a summer forenoon,
Or animals feeding in the fields,
Or birds, or the wonderfulness of insects in the air,
Or the wonderfulness of the sundown, or of stars shining
so quiet and bright,
Or the exquisite delicate thin curve of the new moon
These with the rest, one and all, are to me miracles,
The whole referring, yet each distinct and in its place.
To me every hour of the light and dark is a miracle,
Every cubic inch of space is a miracle,
Every square yard of the surface of the earth is spread
with the same,
Every foot of the interior swarms with the same.
To me the sea is a continual miracle,
The fishes that swim-the rocks-the motion of the waves
-the ships with men in them,
What stranger miracles are there?
~ Walt Whitman ~

FREE SPEECH FOR PEOPLE: NOT CORPORATIONS
"...You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one..."
Senator Jon Tester of Montana has just introduced a People’s Rights Amendment in the U.S Senate to reverse the US Supreme Court’s ruling in Citizens United v. FEC and to make it clear that corporations do not have constitutional rights, as if they were people. This marks the first introduction in the US Senate of a constitutional amendment bill to overturn fully the fabricated doctrine of corporate constitutional rights and ensure that people, not corporations, shall govern in America.
In addition to this major development, Senator Tom Udall of New Mexico has just introduced a new version of a constitutional amendment bill he sponsored last year, with support from 25 other US Senators, that will enable us to end the outsized influence of big money over our politics and will allow for overall limits on campaign spending. Senator Udall’s amendment bill would overturn an earlier, equally damaging Supreme Court ruling in Buckley v. Valeo (from 1976), which said that campaign spending is a form of “free speech”.
As Warren Rudman, the late Republican US Senator from New Hampshire, wrote, “free speech can hardly be called free when only the rich are heard.”
Please contact your Senators now and urge them to support both of these bills.
