Blackberry Ice Cream
This eggless ice cream puts summer blackberries center stage, without any hint of custard to distract from their tart, jammy flavor. A tiny pinch of ground cinnamon highlights their natural aroma without any overt spiciness, while a squeeze of fresh lemon juice helps cut through the richness of cream.

Obesity + aging linked to Alzheimer's markers in the brain

Obesity + aging linked to Alzheimer's markers in the brain

A new study suggests that when a high-fat, high-sugar diet that leads to obesity is paired with normal aging, it may contribute to the development of Alzheimer’s disease. In addition, researchers discovered that certain areas of the brain respond differently to risk factors associated with Alzheimer’s.

Just before serving they are dipped in a perky chili salt spiked with malic acid for a tongue-curling bite.

Psychiatric disorders share an underlying genetic basis

Psychiatric disorders share an underlying genetic basis

Researchers explored the genetic connections between brain disorders at a scale far eclipsing previous work on the subject. The team determined that psychiatric disorders share many genetic variants, while neurological disorders (such as Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s) appear more distinct. The results indicate that psychiatric disorders likely have important similarities at a molecular level, which current diagnostic categories do not reflect.
