Physical Immortality

Immo's picture

Physical Immortality is a state of life that allows a person to avoid death and maintain conscious thought, though it can mean the unending existence of a person from a physical source other than organic life, such as a computer. Active pursuit of physical imortality can either be based on scientific trends, such as mind uploading, cryonics, predictions of an impending technological singularity.

Limbs Saved By Menstrual Blood Stem Cells

 

Cells obtained from menstrual blood, termed 'endometrial regenerative cells' (ERCs) are capable of restoring blood flow in an animal model of advanced peripheral artery disease. A new study demonstrates that when circulation-blocked mice were treated with ERC injections, circulation and functionality were restored.

Findings help identify mechanism of age-related memory deficits, highlight the importance of sleep for memory

Aging impairs the consolidation of memories during sleep, a process important in converting new memories into long-term ones, according to new animal research in the July 30 issue of The Journal of Neuroscience. The findings shed light on normal memory mechanisms and how they are disrupted by aging.
