Awesome study used mice + human brain organiod model to show #COVID-19 can infect the CNS/#brain, where it specifically infected radial #glia, neural stem cells + #neurons. The #virus altered the #metabolism of the neurons it infected + cld use neuron cell machinery to replicate
2/ It’s not surprising that #COVID-19 can infect neurons given the nasal cavity is connected to the #CNS via the cribriform plate, olfactory epithelium + #nerve. This led the team to state that “the brain should be considered a high-risk organ system upon #respiratory exposure”
3/ The team also showed that, at least in some #COVID-19 patients w/ #neurological symptoms, there is a robust antibody response to the #virus in the #cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). In fact, CSF-containing antiviral #antibodies blocked COVID-19 infection in brain organoids

1/ THREAD: Becoming a Published Author in a Pandemic
I published my first academic paper in the American Chemical Society Chemical Neuroscience (what?!) called “Heralding Healthcare Professionals: Recognition of Neurological Deficits in COVID-19” with the incredible @AMannanBaig!

NEW: “When does postural instability appear in monogenic parkinsonisms? An individual-patient meta-analysis” in The Journal of Neurology.
A 2-year effort with @LucaMarsili1 @andrea_sturchio @Dr_Murli_Mishra @DrAlfonsoFasano @nachogenePD @Marcelokauffman @AlbertoEspay
THREAD 🧵
LINK: link.springer.com/article/10.100…

Monogenic parkinsonisms are very different from one another. Not only on the severity of parkinsonism, but also on cognition, behavioral, and autonomic function.
(See a nice review ⬇️ sciencedirect.com/science/articl…)
A critical marker of disability is postural instability🚶➡️🧑‍🦯➡️🧑‍🦽, which leads to falls, and increased morbidity and mortality. The frequency and time-to postural instability in different monogenic parkinsonisms remained unknown.

1/ THREAD 7: Viral Latency and a Hematogenous Route to CNS?

Is it even conceivable that #SARSCoV2 could establish latency in sensory ganglia (like trigeminal ganglia in HSV1) and reactivate to cause recurrent disease as respiratory droplets could enter the eyes, nose, and mouth?
2/ Specifically, talking about the peripheral nerves of the eyes, nose and mouth here. And thinking along the lines of why clinicians are seeing the loss of smell and altered taste in so many patients. Please remember, I am not a #virologist or an infectious disease specialist!
3/ HYPOSMIA DATA:
Both the American Academy of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery AAO-HNS and ENTUK have classified loss of smell and altered taste as significant symptoms in #COVID19. #Covid19UK

#life

Life is just action and reaction at it's simplest.
So is there no life as we know it?
Is nothing really alive?
If so, the dead are not really dead.
How about love and fear?
Reasoning:
People die from virus like COVID 19.
Respiratory system collapses and oxygen supply reduces resulting in complications that lead to death.
Death occurs to all beings large and small.
Insects die, so does bacteria.
Bacteria being the smallest form of life that I know of
How is bacteria different from a virus.
Bacteria has the ability to reproduce on its own while the virus can not do so.
How is reproduction of a bacteria really different from a viruses?
One is self sufficient and the other not.

"Science shows that early exposure to circumstances that produce persistent #fear and chronic #anxiety can have lifelong consequences by disrupting the developing architecture of the brain."

[National Scientific Council on the Developing Child, 2010]
"While some of these experiences are one-time events and others may reoccur or persist over time, all of them have the potential to affect how children learn, solve problems, and relate to others."
This is a topic worthy of discussion. Consider WEF's rapidly accelerating consolidation of global power. In Jan 2019 WEF exploited the climate crisis by deliberately inciting #fear - in tandem with partners & media. Today it exploits the COVID-19 pandemic.

Speaking of #marijuana.

Given the possibility of criminal prosecution or other disciplinary outcomes, I'll put this story as a fable.
There was a young woman, a young mother, with a husband serving in the #armedforces. The young woman had occasional #symptoms including positional agony, dizziness, etc.
Her #country, the #UnitedStates, cared so little about those that served in the military that it provided 3rd class #medicalcare through many of its bases and camps.

“Also note this graph: In addition, Annex B explains that the CIA may "use a monitoring device within the United States under circumstances in which a warrant would not be required for law enforcement purposes if the CIA General Counsel concurs."
“But what qualifies as a "monitoring device"? &how exactly does monitoring differ from "electronic surveillance," which CIA is prohibited from doing domestically? We don't know. In the newly released documents, the definition of "monitoring"...

@prayingmedic On December 21, 2012 we passed the Precession of the Equinox which was the beginning of an entire new cycle, the start of a completely different reality.

People are waking up due to these higher frequencies transitioning into this new Age.
@prayingmedic There are streams of sound frequency that are spread through ancient structures, sacred sites, pyramids and military bases placed on our planet at certain energetic points on Earth’s grid to control and manipulate the collective consciousness.

Today's Applied Complexity Symposium begins with a panel on Computation and Complex Economies, feat. Rob Axtell, Joshua Epstein, @C4COMPUTATION, Blake LeBaron, John Miller, & @MelMitchell1

(Follow this thread for live coverage all day...)

#complexsystems #economics
4 Principles of Collective #Computation:

1 Ground truth (objective reality)
2 Effective ground truth (what we agree on, whether or not it is accurate)
3 #Information can be collectively encoded in #networks
4 Outputs are a product of collective dynamics

@C4COMPUTATION right now
"I think #economics really needs to adopt a generative framework with agent-based models of cognitively plausible software people...[and] we don't choose to fear."

Thread:

#MECFS patients face disbelief that they are sick

Many #MECFS patients are told that they are simply tired, stressed, anxious, depressed, lazy or malingering

How can #pwME respond to such disbelief and lack of understanding??????

See thread below:
2. Below are 7 evidence-based scientifically supported findings that you can use to inform those who dont understand that #MECFS is a multi-organ, systemic and severely debilitating illness

From a lovely review by @HarvardAskDrK in @JAMA_current
ja.ma/2xF3WNT
3. #pwME have deficiencies in 3 organs important for the body's hormonal balances called the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis

Importantly, the deficiencies observed in #MECFS patients are quite different to that seen in #depression

Wow! 👉 This team found that 84% of patients w/ acute ischemic #stroke had bacterial DNA in their blood clots removed from the #brain ☝️oral #pathogen viridans streptococci (already connected to #endocarditis) was the most common organism identified in the #blood clots
Here is the paper itself which states 👉 “We found DNA of viridans streptococci in most aspired thrombi of patients with acute ischemic #stroke, which suggests that oral bacteria may have a role in the cause of #cerebrovascular disease.”
Also 👉 “Repeated transient bacteremia, caused by poor dental care or bacterial #infections, may trap pathogens in atherosclerotic plaques and promote rupture of the plaques”: ahajournals.org/doi/10.1161/JA…
