Only a few weeks remain for people to submit to the 2010 Neuro Film Festival, a contest by the American Academy of Neurology Foundation to help raise awareness through video about brain disorders and the need to support research into preventions, treatment and cures. People who have compelling stories to share regarding how they or a loved one has been affected by a brain disorder are invited to submit a short video to Neuro Film Festival, by February 16, 2010, by visiting http://www.neurofilmfestival.com.
“Patients and caregivers are encouraged to submit short videos to the Neuro Film Festival to help us show why more research is needed into brain disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, migraine, autism, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, ALS and stroke,” said Christine E. Phelps, Deputy Executive Director of the American Academy of Neurology Foundation. “Tell us your story or the story of a loved one affected by neurologic disorders and you could win up to $1,500 and a chance to have your video shown at the Neuro Film Festival in Toronto in conjunction with the Academy’s 62nd Annual Meeting.”
Video submissions to the Neuro Film Festival should be made at http://www.neurofilmfestival.com by February 16, 2010. Videos should be up to seven minutes in length. Each short film should include the phrase, “Let’s put our brains together to support brain research.”
A video showing how to submit to the Neuro Film Festival is available at http://www.neurofilmfestival.com, on the Neuro Film Festival’s channel on YouTube, http://www.youtube.com/neurofilmfest and via Facebook®.
For a complete list of contest rules, visit http://www.neurofilmfestival.com. The public will have the chance to vote for a favorite video after the submissions deadline closes February, 16, 2010.
The Neuro Film Festival is sponsored by PSAV® Presentation Services.
The American Academy of Neurology Foundation (AAN Foundation) raises money to support vital research into the prevention, treatment and cure of brain disorders. The AAN Foundation is committed to improving patient care, quality of life and public understanding of the brain and other neurologic disorders.
The American Academy of Neurology, an association of more than 22,000 neurologists and neuroscience professionals, is dedicated to promoting the highest quality patient-centered neurologic care. A neurologist is a doctor with specialized training in diagnosing, treating and managing disorders of the brain and nervous system such as stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis.

RNA: a vicious pathway to cancer ?

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.
As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...
Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.
Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...
For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.
While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...
An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.
The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...
A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.
Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
