C. delivered subpar levels of oxygen to newborn piglets whose course of brain development and whose highly evolved brain structure mirrors in many respects those of humans When the piglets were 2 days old the scientists injected fluorescently labeled cell trackers into a key brain area the subventricular zone (SVZ) In newborn mammals the SVZ is the biggest depot for the precursor cells that migrate to populate various brain regions and differentiate into multiple cell types The next day the team began depriving the piglets of oxygen—the air they breathed was 105% oxygen rather than the 21% that is normal in the air we breathe When the animals were 14 days old the researchers killed them and examined their brains The team did the same thing in a control group of piglets that were not deprived of oxygen injecting fluorescent trackers in their brains and killing the animals to examine their brains at 14 days of age In addition the group examined the brains of nine human infants who died at between 0 and 36 days of age four from CHD and five from other causes Layers of cells in the brain “depot” where neurons are often born in newborn mammals—in this case a piglet Paul Morton/Shruti Ramachandra During normal brain development in the first weeks of life precursor cells in the SVZ in the piglets give birth to neurons that migrate primarily to the prefrontal cortex the team reports today in Science Translational Medicine In humans that’s the area directly behind the forehead that is the seat of higher thought There the cells differentiate into interneurons an important subcategory of neurons that are called “inhibitory” because they tamp down firing by “excitatory” neurons The balance between excitation and inhibition allows this executive area of the brain to function optimally: making judgments synthesizing facts and solving problems In the oxygen-deprived piglets the generation of neurons from precursors in the SVZ was severely impaired and the number of neurons and interneurons in the frontal cortex was also significantly reduced The pigs’ brains were smaller and weighed less than those of their normal counterparts They also had fewer folds in their surfaces which are known to be vital for higher cognitive function The brains of the human babies with CHD that died in the first month of life also showed a depletion of neural precursor cells in the SVZ Their brains weighed significantly less than those of their counterparts that did not have CHD and their cortexes had less of the gray matter that processes information The authors could only infer from the autopsy samples that a similar migration of neurons from the SVZ to the prefrontal cortex had taken place in the human infants But their inference is strongly supported by findings from autopsy samples of human infants who died in the first few months of life from a variety of causes published in Science last fall The fact that infants’ brains are still developing in those early weeks of life offers a therapeutic window of opportunity the scientists say “It’s incredibly important that these cells continue to grow after birth” says Richard Jonas a cardiac surgeon at Children’s National and a senior author on the paper “That can potentially help a child whose congenital heart problem is fixed early in life because it offers a cellular mechanism for their brain to then catch up and develop normally” Pediatric physicians and heart surgeons are the first to admit that these basic cellular findings don’t translate into an immediate therapy for these newborns But they are nonetheless excited “It’s a great paper” says Steven Miller a neonatal neurologist at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto Canada “This is a first step” he says because it provides a target for therapy: somehow stimulating the SVZ to start replenishing the pool of cells that give rise to the vulnerable depleted interneurons in CHD The study has weaknesses—the piglets didn’t truly model human CHD because they did not have heart anomalies and therefore were not actually deprived of oxygen while fetuses—only after birth Arnold Kriegstein a neuroscientist at the University of California San Francisco also argues that though the scientists found inhibitory interneurons strikingly depleted in the brains of the oxygen-deprived piglets this alone cannot account for the dramatic shrinking of the animals’ overall brain size and the diminished number of cortical folds “The interneurons are part of the story but not the entire story of how the brain is affected by this kind of [lack of oxygen]” Written by Pooja Pillai | Updated: November 19 2016 11:02 am Argentine writer Carlos Gamerro Top News “No subsidies no writer-in-residence positions no making a living out of book sales” says Carlos Gamerro summing up the fate of the Third World writer But there is a sunny side he says “When you do have time to write you write what you bloody well want to write – no pressure from the sales department” It’s a maxim that Gamerro one of Argentina’s most well-regarded authors has scrupulously followed right from his first novel Las Islas (The Islands) which was published in 1998 and which uses the conventions of a detective novel to examine the disquieting hold the Falkland crisis has on Argentina Born in 1962 Gamerro has lived through the most tumultuous years in his country’s history including the “dirty war” overseen by a brutal dictatorship that only ended in the ’80s It is the Argentina of these terrible years that we encounter in The Islands and The Adventure of the Busts of Eva Peron which form a trilogy along with the as yet untranslated Un yuppie en la columna del Che Guevara (A Yuppie in Che Guevara’s Column) These novels scrutinize – and skewer- dearly-held notions such as national identity and national pride but as Gamerro says “National pride is obtained at the expense of someone else’s national humiliation” Excerpts from an email interview In The Islands and The Adventure of the Busts of Eva Peron you combine the detective novel format with political concerns These novels belong to a trilogy on that part of Argentine history I myself have lived through covering the advent of left-wing Peronism in the ’70s the rise of the guerrillas and the hope of revolution the bloody military dictatorship that crushed it and the 1982 war with England Most of this period was characterized by brutal censorship and what I would call the fictions of power: the state was the major creator of fictionalized reality; it is important to bear in mind that in Argentina state crimes were committed clandestinely: not once was capital punishment legally applied but around 30000 persons were murdered and their bodies made to disappear; and the military government denied most of the killings arguing that the disappeared had fled the country and were having a deuce of a great time abroad In a like manner we were winning the war against England day by day until one day suddenly inexplicably we lost it Crime fiction because it so often takes the form of an investigation into hidden truths because it tries to bring hidden crimes to light was an appealing form; one of Argetina’s leading investigations into state crime the 1956 non-fictional Operación masacre (Operation Massacre) by Rodolfo Walsh was an important model for me as well as paranoid all-encompassing political thrillers such as Thomas Pynchon’s Gravity’s Rainbow How important is it to critically examine the idea of ‘national pride’ as you’ve done in The Islands Individual human beings cultures and nations are often tempted to define themselves negatively in terms of their neighbours or opposites; but it seems that it is not enough to find oneself different one must be different and better One group must be more advanced richer stronger more cultured more spiritual better at football more tolerant more egalitarian than some other group National pride is obtained at the expense of someone else’s national humiliation; in its ultimate form the name of this game is war Is it really necessary Is it worth the effort and the suffering You’ve always been bilingual How did this influence your development as a reader and writer I have always read in both languages; I grew up in Argentina but studied in a British school in Buenos Aires where we played rugby and cricket and I grew up among the dwindling Anglo-Argentine community Argentina was never a part of the British Empire politically but Argentina’s ruling classes have always been either anglophiles or Francophiles and culturally and economically we were quite dependant on the Empire at least until 1945 So this rich and troubling relationship with British culture is something we share with India and this is why the 1982 war with England can be seen as an external purely military conflict but also as an internal or cultural one and perhaps for all of these reasons it is not a coincidence that my first novel centered on it My latest novel Cardenio published earlier this year is an imaginary recreation of the writing of Shakespeare and Fletcher’s play of the same name based on a story in Cervantes’ Don Quixote which they must have read in the first English translation done by the Irishman Thomas Shelton in 1612 I wrote the first version in English and then rewrote it in Spanish So the two languages and the two cultures have always been there in my first novel through the metaphor (and reality) of war in the latest one through that of collaboration I suppose this development can be seen as a step forward all things considered In The Adventure of the Busts of Eva Peron you pay tribute to Cervantes with the fictitious self-help book Don Quixote: The Executive Errant that your protagonist reads as well as the larger theme of the book At the same time there’s a hint of Borges well-known for referring to entirely fictitious books in his works Cervantes’ Don Quixote is what I would call a heroic reader: he does not read to escape into a fictional world but to change the world he lives in Don Quixote believes in life as depicted in the literature of chivalry; my own rather degraded Quixotic hero Ernesto Marroné believes with equal passion in management and self-help books such as Dale Carnegie’s How to Win Friends and Influence People; and especially in a sub-genre that adapts literary classics such as Shakespeare’s plays to the daily needs of managers and businessmen Such books exist my only contribution to the genre was imagining Don Quixote: the Executive-errant I thought this was rather original but while the novel was nearing completion I came across a management course booklet that featured on its cover a picture of a modern executive getting ready to charge a group of windmills holding a briefcase in one hand and a lance in the other As to Borges it wasn’t deliberate but I suppose the book Marroné reads might be seen as a parody of Borgesian parody the idiot child of his Pierre Menard Author of Don Quixote Borges is the most widely-read Argentine writer in India Who are some others that you would recommend In my recent Facundo o Martín Fierro a series of essays on major landmarks in Argentine fiction I proposed an imaginary situation or ‘Sophie’s choice’ of Argentine literature: the library where the last extant copies of all our great books are kept is burning and you have the choice of saving Borges’ or all the rest I would save Borges’ without any doubt and watch all the others burn including my own not with pleasure of course but with the satisfaction of having done my duty Having said this one shouldn’t miss the uncanny and often fantastical short stories of Julio Cortázar; the pop novels of Manuel Puig (including his famous The Kiss of the Spider Woman) and more recently the writing of the children of the disappeared which resort to absurdity and humour in dealing with the country’s and their own traumatic past; such as Félix Bruzzone’s Los topos (The Moles) and Mariana Eva Pérez’s Diario de una princesa montonera (The Diary of a Montonero Princess) We should also remember another widely read Argentine writer even if he’s not always credited as a writer: Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara But Borges deserves your attention as it was reciprocated – you know he was always deeply in love with India In Mumbai and Delhi I shall be reading a lecture on “Borges and India” I have written especially for this visit Across the world we’re seeing nationalistic chest-thumping and growing authoritarianism In these times what is the role of writers and literature In times of authoritarianism sectarianism censorship collective or personalized threats all of which may lead to or stem from varying forms of state terrorism one gradually watches politicians becoming reluctant to voice dissent the judiciary becoming a pawn in the power game the press taking sides for or against its major players or following their own political or economic agenda When all of this happens we tend to look towards writers as the last guarantee of truth which is rather paradoxical given that writers are essentially people who make up stories ie,
