Sigmund Freud(born May 6, 1856, Freiberg, Moravia, Austrian Empire [now Příbor, Czech Republic]—died September 23, 1939LondonEngland), Austrian neurologist, founder of psychoanalysis.
Freud may justly be called the most influential intellectual legislator of his age. His creation of psychoanalysis was at once a theory of the human psyche, a therapy for the relief of its ills, and an optic for the interpretation of culture and society. Despite repeated criticisms, attempted refutations, and qualifications of Freud’s work, its spell remained powerful well after his death and in fields far removed from psychology as it is narrowly defined. If, as the American sociologist Philip Rieff once contended, “psychological man” replaced such earlier notions as political, religious, or economic man as the 20th century’s dominant self-image, it is in no small measure due to the power of Freud’s vision and the seeming inexhaustibility of the intellectual legacy he left behind./.../

TOMM40 gene

alzheimer's genetics puzzle pieces

By 
Published
The genetic narrative behind Alzheimer's disease may need to be adjusted, according to a new study.
So far, the consensus among scientists has been that the ApoE4 gene is the main marker of Alzheimer's disease and many other dementias. But new research adds another key player into the mix: the so-called TOMM40 gene.
The ApoE gene is instrumental in forming lipoproteins, which are molecules that carry cholesteroland other fats through our bloodstream.
ApoE has several slightly different versions, and one of them, called e4, has been strongly associated with the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease.
Moreover, the ApoE4 gene is linked to the buildup of amyloid plaque, which is a clumpy protein found in the brain tissue of Alzheimer's patients.
