The boy had a third of his right lobe removed

Study challenges evolution of FOXP2 as human-specific language gene
Scientists say they have found new evidence in lab-grown mouse brain cells, called astrocytes, that one root of Alzheimer's disease may be a simple imbalance in acid-alkaline -- or pH -- chemistry inside endosomes, the nutrient and chemical cargo shuttles in cells.

Map of a billion brain links reveals clues about how we think
Scientists have created an elaborate map of more than a billion brain cell connections, helping to shed light on how memories are formed and recalled.

AI device identifies objects at the speed of light
Electrical and computer engineers have created a physical artificial neural network -- a device modeled on how the human brain works -- that can analyze large volumes of data and identify objects at the actual speed of light.

pH imbalance in brain cells may contribute to Alzheimer's disease
Scientists say they have found new evidence in lab-grown mouse brain cells, called astrocytes, that one root of Alzheimer's disease may be a simple imbalance in acid-alkaline -- or pH -- chemistry inside endosomes, the nutrient and chemical cargo shuttles in cells.

Scientists Transform Bad Alzheimers Genes To Healthy Ones

Mapping of magnetic particles in the human brain
Researchers have for the first time mapped the distribution of magnetic particles in the human brain. The study reveals that the particles are primarily located in the cerebellum and the brainstem, which are the more ancient parts of the brain.

Boy’s brain works just fine after a large piece was removed
A boy had a third of his right brain hemisphere removed to treat his epilepsy. His brain has now rearranged itself, preventing any cognitive impairment

Note a few interesting things from the graphs:  TuzMANya is bucking the trend.  Graphs 1 and 2 show extra rainfall in the west of the little state, and no drought in graph 3.  The Perth area is also doing well, while around the cape(?) nearby, the coast is in drought.  The SE of Western Australia has a round blob where there has suddenly been extra precip.  Mostly, the drought is hitting NSW, which is more temperately green, and so more populated, than the rest of the country.  But also, some wine-making areas in the south/bay areas are being hit.  Considering that wine is being hit in France - and California - and these trends will only continue - then the cost of wine will be going the way of vanilla soon, and there will be plenty of opportunity to make a buck off of it, if there are any young global warming entrepreneurs out there... Like I always say, when the world is on fire, always go for the bubbles...
