Paralyzed Man Moves His Arm With a Brain Implant and a ‘Bypass’

Ian Burkhart is paralyzed from the chest down. But he can pick up a credit card and swipe it. He can pick up a bottle and pour. And he can do it all just by thinking about it.

It’s the latest advance in efforts to help restore movement to people who are paralyzed. In Burkhart’s case, a small brain implant picks up his thoughts and transmits them to a computer, which then sends signals to a sleeve that twitches his hand into action.

“I just think about what I want to do and now I can do it,” said Burkhart, 24.

It’s not seamless. Burkhart is plugged in – a large plug at the top of his skull, and wires attached to the sleeve that stimulates his arm, wrist and finger muscles.

6 Clues Your Girlfriend is Losing Interest – and How to Fix the Problem

Great relationships start out with a spark. Two people meet one another and their chemistry is instant. Perhaps they love the same music and movies. Maybe they both studied Art History in college. Who knows? It can be something intangible, where two totally different people meet and fall in love. The only problem with this system is that the initial spark – the thing that draws two people to one another – can fade. In its place, boredom, restlessness, disinterest, and annoyance can appear if a couple doesn’t work together to make sure the relationship remains meaningful and special to both parties.

Drugs You Don’t Need For Disorders You Don’t Have

One evening in the late summer of 2015, Lisa Schwartz was watching television at her Vermont home when an ad for a sleeping pill called Belsomra appeared on the screen. Schwartz, a longtime professor at Dartmouth Medical College, usually muted commercials, but she watched this one closely: a 90-second spot featuring a young woman and two slightly cute, slightly creepy fuzzy animals in the shape of the words “sleep” and “wake.”

Schwartz had a reason to be curious about this particular ad. Two years earlier, she had been a member of the advisory panel that reviewed Belsomra for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration—and the process had not gone well for the manufacturer, Merck. The company saw its new drug as a major innovation, emphasizing that the medication acted on an entirely different mechanism within the brain than the previous generation of insomnia medicines like Ambien and Lunesta. During the drug’s development, Merck had suggested that it could treat insomnia more effectively and produce fewer side effects than existing medications. In 2012, one Merck scientist described the science underlying Belsomra as a “sea change.”

But when Schwartz and her colleagues scrutinized data from the company’s own large-scale clinical trials, what they found was a lot less impressive. People taking Belsomra fell asleep, on average, only six minutes sooner than people taking a placebo and stayed asleep for a mere 16 minutes longer. Some test subjects experienced worrying side effects, like next-day drowsiness and temporary paralysis upon waking. For a number of people, these effects were so severe that the researchers halted their driving tests, fearing someone would get into an accident. Because of these safety concerns, the FDA ended up approving the drug at a lower starting dosage than the company had requested—a dosage so low that a Merck scientist admitted it was “ineffective.”

4 out of 5 teenagers who attempt suicide show clear warning signs. People don’t always say they need help. They scream out their pain in silence. It’s not just social media. They’re not just memes, GIFs and likes. Art speaks.

Listen.

Parents Seriously Misjudge How Much Sleep Their Kids Need

Reuters Health – Many parents have only a poor understanding of how much sleep their children need, a New Zealand study found.

One in four parents thought children need less sleep than is recommended, while one in five thought children need more sleep than what experts advise.

Many parents also reported that TV watching, playing, and late dinners interrupted their kids’ regular bedtimes.

“Children who have insufficient sleep are more likely to have difficulties with their attention, mood, learning, health, and behavior at home and at school,” said lead author Philippa McDowall of the University of Otago in New Zealand.
