from our parents do not only determine our physical traits but also how we develop Dr Christopher Gregga Human Frontiers Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Molecular and Cellular BiologyHarvard Universitystudied the roles of so-called “imprinted genes” in brain developmentbrain function and animal behaviourABC News reported Human beings inherit 23 chromosomes from each parentand they pair up and combine to form the thousands of genes that control every aspect of our biological development – from height to hair colour But for reasons unknownin some genes the DNA from one parent suppresses the DNA from the other parentselectively controlling the expression of that gene The process is called “genomic imprinting”and it may significantly influence our biological development – possibly making us more susceptible to diseases like autism Gregg and colleagues used so-called “next generation” sequencing technology to sequence the genomes of the brain regions of micelooking for imprinted genesand then determining whether the genes were under the influence of maternally or paternally derived DNA They found there were differences in the expression of genes in different stages of development of the mice brainsin different cell typesand in different brain areas In mouse embryosimprinting was more likely to be maternally influencedwhereas in adult miceit was more likely to be paternally influenced Imprinted genes were more likely to be found in the genes that code for certain types of brain tissue They were more common in genes coding for the major monoaminergic nuclei of the brainthat is those neurones (nerve cells) that manufacture neurotransmitters such as serotonindopamineor noradrenaline These areas of the brain have been implicated in a wide range of neurological

remake of the 1990 original Which is a good thingbecause with the new characters and plot pointsand minus some of the old stuffthe 2012 Agneepath becomes its own filmwhich works precisely because its both a tribute and a stylish re-invention of the 70s-spilling-into-the-80s retribution formula Twelve-year-old Vijay Dinanath Chauhan (Roshan) and his mother flee the dark island of Mandwajust off Mumbaiafter his idealistic school teacher fathers brutal death at the hands of the evil Kancha (Dutt) For those who remember Mukul S Anands Agneepath with Amitabh Bachchanthis is a recognisable framework Some other charactersand their nameshave been retainedbut their arcs are determinedly not the same Hrithik Roshan makes for a very different Vijayless dramaticless showyand he is made to leapfrog over a new villain before he can get to his old enemy: Rishi Kapoor plays Rauf Lalaa soorma-eyed baddie who dabbles in drugs and damselsand is one of the assets of the new film Debutant director Malhotra does well in keeping away from the self-conscious over-styled retro-cool tone adopted by most directors trying to remake/adapt classics: a large part of the enjoyment I found in the film came from watching a bunch of actors going through their parts not with a knowing nudge-and-winkbut in all earnestness Otherwisehow can you even look at this Kanchain his flowing black robesbald pateand fat ear-ringwithout laughing out loud IronicallyDutt as Kancha is the weakest part of the filmall costume-pufferywithout dredging up one iota of the menace required from an irredeemably bad guywho loves slaloming his victims off rocky cliff walls when he is not stringing them up on the islands bargad tree The bouncing-of-upside-down-humans-against-cliffs is more like a jokey ping pong gamewhich is at variance with the rest of Agneepathwhich takes its job of delivering mainstream masalawith familiar-but-fading set-piecesseriously: pregnant woman delivering baby on footpatha girl about to suffer fate worse than deatha villain and his nachaniya in his sinister denand so on This would have been a more effective film if the connections between the characters and their lines had been tighterif the film had been crisper If Badman Dutt had not grinned so much And if the horribly loud background music didnt make it its business to tell me how to feel in every frame Hrithik does well with being dressed downand with the song and the dance and the welling-up-of-tearsbut falters when it comes to a killing flare in the eyes: Roshan Jr on a rampage is just not as credible But then I could also understand the dilemma of producer Karan Joharwhose father Yash Johar made the original: if not Hrithikwho Certainly not Abhishekwhoif he had been a different actorwould have been the obvious choice of a Vijay Dinanath Chauhan reprise Om Puri is the cop Gaitonde who is sympathetic towards both boy-and-man Vijay Zarina Wahab plays Vijays motherand fittingly has a more visible role than Priyanka Chopraswho plays the love interest: in a KJo filmits always about the momsweethearts come later Theres also Katrina In and As Chikni Chameliwhose giddy jhatkas redefines the limits of item girl jigginess And I have to say Im truly happy that the film leaves out the monumentally silly Mithun Chakraborty track of the original: that Krishan Iyer MA was just plain hideous cheese Most importantlyat the endtheres enough of a payoff Agneepath is old style revenge drama which does well on the wholedespite its plot holes and a slackened second halfwith executing genre conventions Old

NewsBy: AP | New York | Published: December 1 2016 7:21 pm Psilocybin mushrooms are mushrooms that contain the psychedelic compounds psilocybin and psilocin (Source: Wikipedia) Top News The psychedelic drug in “magic mushrooms” can quickly and effectively help treat anxiety and depression in cancer patients an effect that may last for months two small studies show It worked for Dinah Bazer who endured a terrifying hallucination that rid her of the fear that her ovarian cancer would return And for Estalyn Walcoff who says the drug experience led her to begin a comforting spiritual journey Watch What Else is Making News The work released Thursday is preliminary and experts say more definitive research must be done on the effects of the substance called psilocybin (sih-loh-SY’-bihn) But the record so far shows “very impressive results” said Dr Craig Blinderman who directs the adult palliative care service at the Columbia University Medical Center/New York-Presbyterian Hospital He didn’t participate in the work Psilocybin also called shrooms purple passion and little smoke comes from certain kinds of mushrooms It is illegal in the US and if the federal government approves the treatment it would be administered in clinics by specially trained staff experts say Nobody should try it on their own which would be risky said the leaders of the two studies Dr Stephen Ross of New York University and Roland Griffiths of Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore Psychedelic drugs have looked promising in the past for treating distress in cancer patients But studies of medical use of psychedelics stopped in the early 1970s after a regulatory crackdown on the drugs following their widespread recreational use It has slowly resumed in recent years Griffiths said it’s not clear whether psilocybin would work outside of cancer patients although he suspects it might work in people facing other terminal conditions Plans are also underway to study it in depression that resists standard treatment he said The new studies published in the Journal of Psychotherapy are small The NYU project which also included psychotherapy covered just 29 patients The Hopkins study had 51 Bazer who lives in New York was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2010 when she was 63 Treatment was successful but then she became anxious about it coming back “I just began to be filled with a terrible dread” she said in an interview “You’re waiting for the other shoe to drop … (The anxiety) was ruining my life” She swallowed a capsule of psilocybin in 2012 in the company of two staff members trained to guide her through the several hours that the drug would affect her brain As she listened to music through headphones her eyes covered with a sleep mask the drug went to work “Suddenly I was in a dark terrifying place lost in space lost in time” she recalled “I had no bearings and I was really really terrified” Then she saw her dread of a cancer recurrence as a black mass in her abdomen and she furiously yelled at it to leave “As soon as that happened the fear was gone” she said “I was just floating in the music … like being carried in a river” Then she felt deep love for her family and friends and sensed their love for her “It felt like I was bathed in God’s love … I’m still an atheist by the way but that really seemed to be the only way to describe it” Researchers said such mystical experiences appeared to play a role in the drug’s therapeutic effect Walcoff 69 a psychotherapist in Rochester New York also entered the NYU study because of her anxiety over a cancer recurrence in her case lymphoma (Most participants had active cancer) Psilocybin “opened me up to pursue meditation and spiritual searching” Walcoff said and as a result of that “I have become reassured and convinced that that phase of my life is over and it’s not going to come back” Most funding for the studies came from the Heffter Research Institute a nonprofit organization that supports studies of psilocybin and other hallucinogens In both studies psilocybin treatment had more effect on anxiety and depression than a placebo did For example by the day after treatment about 80 percent of the treated NYU patients no longer qualified as clinically anxious or depressed by standard measures That compares to about 30 percent for the placebo group That’s a remarkably fast response experts said and it endured for the seven weeks of the comparison The studies took different approaches for formulating a placebo At NYU patients were given niacin which mimics some effects of psilocybin At Hopkins the placebo was a very low dose of psilocybin itself Researchers in both studies eventually gave full psilocybin treatment to the placebo groups and followed all the patients for about six months The beneficial effects appeared to persist over that period But the evidence for that is less strong than for the shorter term because there was no longer any placebo comparison group No severe side effects arose from the treatment Dr William Breitbart chief of the psychiatry service at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York who didn’t participate in the studies said they were improvements over prior research on the topic But there were still enough shortcomings to make him cautious about drawing conclusions he said In any case Bazer and Walcoff say the treatment affected more than their cancer anxieties Walcoff said it has helped her work on being less judgmental and more self-accepting Bazer said it made her a more patient driver and more active socially “It really changed everything for me” Bazer said “And I still do not have anxiety about the cancer coming back” For all the latest Lifestyle News download
