Scientists successfully transfer longevity gene, pave way for extending human lifespan | SciTechDaily

“In a groundbreaking endeavor, scientists at the University of Rochester have successfully transferred a longevity gene from naked mole rats to mice, leading to enhanced health and a longer lifespan for the mice.


Naked mole rats, known for their long lifespans and exceptional resistance to age-related diseases, have long captured the attention of the scientific community. By introducing a specific gene responsible for enhanced cellular repair and protection into mice, the Rochester researchers have opened exciting possibilities for unlocking the secrets of aging and extending human lifespan.”

Psychedelics research: Pioneering advances in brain learning and plasticity | The Cortex Report

“In a recent study, researchers administered these psychedelics to adult mice to determine their role in reopening the social reward learning critical period. The results were astonishing: pre-treatment with either LSD or Psilocybin reinstated social conditioned place preference (sCPP), a measure of social reward learning. This effect, however, was blocked when a 5-HT2AR antagonist was co-administered, suggesting a specific pathway through which these psychedelics operate.”

Astronauts' immune systems could be disturbed by microgravity, scientists find |

“As a new era of crewed space exploration approaches, with prolonged missions to the moon and Mars planned for the coming decades, scientists are taking a closer look at how the environment of space can negatively impact the immune systems of astronauts.


In particular, a team from the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden looked at how microgravity experienced by space travelers could affect T-cells.”

AI could ‘turn good jobs into bad jobs’—3 labor historians on what the future of work might hold | CNBC

“One option is ‘we’ll have an assembly line for a script for some TV show,’ he says, adding that, ‘AI would produce bad dialogue, and then there’d be the dialogue finisher. And then it would produce a bad premise, and there’d be the premise coordinator. You’d have many different writers’ jobs — none of them is writer.’ And each one of these jobs would, theoretically, take less skill and pay less than the current job of a writer.”
