Study: Learning New Skills Keeps Aging Mind Sharp.

A new study shows that elderly adults who challenge their minds with increasingly difficult tasks maintain cognitive functioning better than those who do less demanding activities.
To keep our brains sharp as we age, we are often told to keep our minds active; “use it or lose it.” There actually is little scientific evidence to support that, however, according to psychologist Denise Park of the University of Texas at Dallas.

“Partially because it is very, very hard to do experiments with humans, where you randomly assign them to conditions where, say, you retire young, you do not retire; you do interesting things, you do boring things,” said Park.

Νέο είδος ανθρώπου βρέθηκε στα Βαλκάνια


Νέο είδος ανθρώπου βρέθηκε στα Βαλκάνια

Του Φώτη Νικολαΐδη (Α)
Από την εξέταση των υπολειμμάτων ενός ανθρώπου που βρέθηκε στο σπήλαιο Μάλα Μπαλάνιστα στο Σιτσέβο Γκορτζ στη νότια Σερβία, εξήχθησαν σημαντικά συμπεράσματα για την εξέλιξη του ανθρώπινου είδους και ειδικότερα για την εξέλιξη του ανθρώπου στο χώρο των Βαλκανίων.
Στον άνθρωπο αυτό δόθηκε η κωδική ονομασία BH-1. Η μορφολογία της σιαγώνος και των δοντιών που βρέθηκαν διαφέρει σημαντικά από τα αντίστοιχα χαρακτηριστικά των ανθρώπων της ίδιας περιόδου που βρέθηκαν στη δυτική Ευρώπη.
Ο σκελετός αυτός είναι ο παλαιότερος που έχει βρεθεί μέχρι τώρα στα Βαλκάνια και οι ειδικοί τον τοποθετούν ανάμεσα στα 397.000 και 525.000 χρόνια, στηριζόμενοι σε σύγχρονες μεθόδους αναλύσεων (ESR-US και ESR-CSUS, 230Th234U ). Οι εξετάσεις αυτές πραγματοποιήθηκαν από μια ομάδα πανεπιστημιακών καθηγητών-ερευνητών από τον Καναδά και το Βελιγράδι.
