I'm currently looking Curcumin with Piperine (Black pepper), would appreciate any advice on other ones you guys could recommend me, would be of great help!
Edit: link to benefits of Curcumin/Tumeric if anyone is interested:
Thanks for the help!
Caffeine is commonly used to combat high sleep pressure on a daily basis. However, interference with sleep–wake regulation could disturb neural homeostasis and insufficient sleep could lead to alterations in human gray matter. Hence, in this double-blind, randomized, cross-over study, we examined the impact of 10-day caffeine (3 × 150 mg/day) on human gray matter volumes (GMVs) and cerebral blood flow (CBF) by fMRI MP-RAGE and arterial spin-labeling sequences in 20 habitual caffeine consumers, compared with 10-day placebo (3 × 150 mg/day). Sleep pressure was quantified by electroencephalographic slow-wave activity (SWA) in the previous nighttime sleep. Nonparametric voxel-based analyses revealed a significant reduction in GMV in the medial temporal lobe (mTL) after 10 days of caffeine intake compared with 10 days of placebo, voxel-wisely adjusted for CBF considering the decreased perfusion after caffeine intake compared with placebo. Larger GMV reductions were associated with higher individual concentrations of caffeine and paraxanthine. Sleep SWA was, however, neither different between conditions nor associated with caffeine-induced GMV reductions. Therefore, the data do not suggest a link between sleep depth during daily caffeine intake and changes in brain morphology. In conclusion, daily caffeine intake might induce neural plasticity in the mTL depending on individual metabolic processes.

It's stopped glowing with the eyes. I know this is probably really low on the list, it'd just be nice to have it working again.
I was scraping on pubmed and found that research released in 2018. It's highlighted 3 important findings:
-Psychedelics (mainly LSD and DMT) can promote neuritogenesis. Neuritogenesis simply has key roles of learning something and healing cell itself.
-Psychedelics can (possibly) use treatment of depression, PTSD, addiction.
-Direct evidence for this hypothesis, demonstrating that psychedelics cause both structural and functional changes in cortical neurons. That's also evidence Psychedelics can use as therapeutic agents.
Just want to share with you, especially share with people who have interest on neuroscience.

What induces corticostriatal potentiation ?
Hey guys, for a project I am trying to bend a wire by compressing it between two dies(into a triangular shape). The end goal is to determine the max deformation versus the permanent deformation after unloading. for the life of me I just can’t get it to work. The strange thing is that it will often calculate through to maximum loading, then fail while it’s unloading. I keep getting the same error message
“Solution failure in step>1, it could be due to: the solution may be buckling or at a limit point, i.e., displacements grow too large under constant forces. If so, for force control or contact problems, this is the end of the solution.1. for plasticity models, raise: ETAN >Ex/100.”
I’ve tried just about everything I can imagine. used several different stress strain curves from outside sources, used smoother displacement/ time curves for loading/ unloading, changed time increments, modified singularity elimination factor to 0 or 0.5, used higher/ lower meshing, and a ton of other stuff that does help, but ultimately the model still fails with that same error. I should also note that, when using solidworks’ default SS curve (316 annealed bar), the stress ends up being waaay higher than what is even possible. i’ve noticed that by modeling a simply cantilever beam(to test my setup) with a load applied to it, the stress is much greater when i’m using a solid body to apply the displacement load onto my part, whereas the stress is normal if i apply the displacement load directly onto my part without the use of dies.
I’m beginning to wonder is something like 3DExperience would be more appropriate, but I don’t have a license for it
Any help would be appreciated, I am still relatively new to solidworks, Thanks.
A very nice qualitative summary on many of the changes we experience with neurofeedback training.
Is this phenomenon well understood yet? What is the reason that neurons decrease their plasticity throughout development until the end of adolescence? Has this been studied at the molecular level or at all? If so, has there been any significant findings or any experiments that have uncovered the mechanisms responsible for regulating synaptic plasticity in the developing brain?
