    Neurons’ sugar coating is essential for long-term memories

    How the brain is able to store memories over long periods of time has been a persistent mystery to neuroscientists. In a new study, researchers from the Centre for Integrative Neuroplasticity (CINPLA) at the University of Oslo show that long-lived extracellular matrix molecules called perineuronal nets are essential for distant memories.

    The new research published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, shows that removal of the nets disrupts distant but not recent memories.

Reduction of undernutrition and obesity globally: The role of a human rights-based approach in the UN Decade of Action on Nutrition

What are the arguments for applying a human rights-based approach to malnutrition in all forms, and related diseases? What are the “added values” through such an approach?  What obligations do states have to help implement the right to food and health for their populations? How can we develop strong regulatory frameworks to reduce food businesses’ marketing of unhealthy foods to children? 

Welcome to an open international interdisciplinary seminar linking law, human rights and nutrition!
