    too many constipation jokes… anus is the first sphincter and high nerve concentration, which spinal cords to the brain, which has a control for all the body systems and parts…

    so a pill instead of therapy or treatment? how time saving and dollar cost effective to return people to full functioning!

    our gut micro flora and fauna control our brains in a similar way, and what we eat is their battleground – which group gets the food.

Caffeine and More Sleep Help Improve Chronic Pain

In sleep-deprived mice, caffeine and other drugs to promote wakefulness ease pain better than analgesics.

A cognitive scientist has devised a drug-free sleep trick for your restless mind

A cognitive scientist may have solved a familiar sleep riddle: If you struggle to fall asleep, youā€™re likely to keep thinking about how you canā€™t fall asleep, which makes it harder to fall asleep. So how do you stop thinking about your struggle to sleep? Luc Beaudoin of Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada, has invented a method called cognitive shuffling thatā€™s meant to lull the brain into that groggy state that precedes a sleep cycle by asking it to focus on random words and images, without making connections between them. When heā€™s speaking to other cognitive scientists, he calls the concept ā€œserial diverse imagining.ā€ There are two ways to do this cognitive shuffle. The first is to play a simple word game as you lay in bed: Pick a word that contains at least five letters. Take the first letter, and create a new list of words that begin it, and vividly picture each in your mind. When you run out of ideas or inspiration, move on to the next letter. The ā€œseedā€ word can be anything, though it should be emotionally neutral, and ought not contain too many repeated letters. Beaudoin uses ā€œbedtimeā€ as an example on his site. The second option is to use Beaudoinā€™s app, mySleepButton, which works on a similar principle but does all the heavy lifting for you. Turn it on and a generically pleasant voice reads out a list of random objects, scenes, and activities, seconds apart; all you have to do is set the timer for how long you want the voice to keep listing items, and then picture each item vividly.

Considering the modern era connection between brain and gut micro-flora/fauna

and famine/feast driven behaviours

kinda puts the exploring and exploiting the food niches

conferring the offspringing advantage

A new study examines the effects of painkillers and drugs that promote wakefulness on the pain sensitivity of sleep-deprived mice. Painkillers might not work if you are sleep deprived, study suggests – Medical News Today

Why Some Images Trigger Seizures

The key, they propose, is a particular repetitive pattern of neural activity in the brain known as gamma oscillations that occurs when people view certain images, such as black and white bar patterns, and not others. In fact, the researchers say, it’s possible that those kinds of images are responsible for other problems, such as migraine headaches, particularly in people who are generally sensitive to light.

The research is in Current Biology. (full open access)

    ovrstimulation and pattern confusion. short circuit the processing in an overclocked brain. makes sense
– Variability in Neanderthal diet: In Belgium they were eating wooly rhinoceros, wild sheep and mushrooms; in Spain, pine nuts, moss, mushrooms and tree bark
– Evidence of chewing poplar bark to access salicylic acid (the active ingredient of aspirin) to treat pain and swelling by an individual who suffered from a bad dental abscess and an intestinal parasite that causes acute diarrhea
– Plus, 40,000 years before the development of penicillin, this same very ill individual was consuming a food source containing the natural antibiotic mould Penicillium
