"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great."

Compulsive no more
Clues to what causes compulsive behavior could improve OCD treatments http://goo.gl/5pseZ
 By activating a brain circuit that controls compulsive behavior, MIT neuroscientists have shown that they can block a compulsive behavior in mice -- a result that could help researchers develop new treatments for diseases such as obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and Tourette's syndrome.

Multiple sclerosis study reveals how killer t cells learn to recognize nerve fiber 


insulators   http://goo.gl/XW48l


 Misguided killer T cells may be the missing link in sustained tissue damage in the brains and spines of people with multiple sclerosis, findings from the University of Washington reveal. Cytoxic T cells, also known as CD8+ T cells, are white blood cells that normally are in the body’s arsenal to fight disease.

 Multiple Sclerosis (MS), is a progressive disease that attacks the myelin of axons (nerve fibres) in the central nervous system. It is an autoimmune disorder in which the body's immune system attacks part of the body as if it were a foreign substance

Children exposed to music at home have enhanced development of auditory abilitieshttp://goo.gl/lmnFX

The relation between informal musical activities at home and electrophysiological indices of neural auditory change detection was investigated in 2–3-year-old children. Auditory event-related potentials were recorded in a multi-feature paradigm that included frequency, duration, intensity, direction, gap deviants and attention-catching novel sounds.
