One Year Ago Today, Our Worst Nightmares Became A Reality At A Las Vegas Music Festival

first_imgOn the evening of October 1st, 2017, during country star Jason Aldean‘s closing set at Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas, a gunman opened fire on the crowd gathered on the Strip from the window of an overlooking casino hotel. He continued to fire for roughly an hour as the festival’s audience scrambled for cover. By the time authorities found him dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, he had murdered 58 people and injured more than 800 others, making it the most devastating mass shooting in modern American history.This shattering act of violence hit particularly close to home for music fans. We go to concerts and festivals to escape, to let our guards down, have fun, and experience the joys of live music surrounded by like-minded people. Such a savage attack on a captive, wholly unprepared music festival audience is difficult to even think about without a pit of dread forming in your stomach. It could have been any of us. Any of those thousands of people scrambling for their lives as their friends were picked off all around them could have been you.The outpouring of support in the wake of this tragic shooting matched the universal emotional wreckage it left in its wake. In the months that followed, people from all over banded together to support the countless people whose lives were lost or affected by the Las Vegas shooting. What began as a GoFundMe campaign quickly ballooned into a full-blown nonprofit organization, The Las Vegas Victims Fund, and eventually pulled in more than $31M in donations to the victims and their families.Today, on the anniversary of the attack, a sunrise remembrance of those lost was held in Las Vegas at the Clark County Government Center Amphitheater. The perpetually-glowing marquees of the Las Vegas strip will also go dark tonight in remembrance of those lost last year. You can watch a clip from today’s memorial below:Las Vegas Shooting Victims Remembered On One-Year Anniversary[Video: CBS]The weekend after the attack during his performance in Las Vegas, Jason Aldean appeared on Saturday Night Live to offer his condolences and support to all those affected. The singer wore his emotions on his sleeve, stoically yet sincerely addressing the millions watching:This week we witnessed one of the worst tragedies in American history. Like everyone, I’m struggling to understand what happened that night and how to pick up the pieces and start to heal. So many people are hurting, and they’re our children, parents, brothers, sisters, friends. They’re all part of our family. I want to say to them, we hurt for you and we hurt with you. You can be sure we’re going to walk through these tough times together, every step of the way. Because when America is at its best, our bond and our spirit, it’s unbreakable.Aldean then performed an appropriate tribute: a rendition of the defiant anthem “I Won’t Back Down” by Tom Petty, who passed away the day after the Las Vegas shooting. You can watch Jason Aldean’s statement on SNL and his Tom Petty tribute to the Las Vegas shooting victims below:Jason Aldean – “I Won’t Back Down” [Tom Petty cover][Video: USA TODAY]Jason Aldean Speaks About The Las Vegas Shooting[Video: Cal Vid]Of course, while the sentiments from Aldean’s statement were heartfelt, a year removed from the horrifying incident we’re all painfully aware that things haven’t exactly gotten better. Massacres of innocent people have continued consistently. While the outrage over our country’s apparent affinity for violence and the instruments with which it’s waged has gotten louder and louder, no significant legislative action has been taken to actually attempt to prevent it.Wherever you fall on the issue of gun control—or any issue at all—it’s of the utmost importance you vote in the upcoming Midterm Elections on Tuesday, November 6th. With our country as divided as it’s ever been, it’s imperative for each and every person to make their opinions heard by voting for the candidates that represent their position. Your voice—or your silence—could legitimately be what tips the scale in one direction or another.For more information on polling places for the upcoming elections, or to learn how you can get more involved in the political process, head to HeadCount.last_img read more

Up close and personal with neuronal networks

first_imgThe research is described in Nature Biomedical Engineering.The researchers developed the electronic chip using the same fabrication technology as computer microprocessors. The chip features a dense array of vertically standing nanometer-scale electrodes on its surface, which are operated by the underlying high-precision integrated circuit. Coated with platinum powder, each nanoelectrode has a rough surface texture, which improves its ability to pass signals.,Neurons are cultured directly on the chip. The integrated circuit sends a current to each coupled neuron through the nanoelectrode to open tiny holes in its membrane, creating an intracellular access. Simultaneously, the same integrated circuit also amplifies the voltage signals from the neuron picked up by the nanoelectrode through the holes.“In this way we combined the high sensitivity of intracellular recording and the parallelism of the modern electronic chip,” said Jeffrey Abbott, a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology and SEAS, and the first author of the paper.In experiments, the array intracellularly recorded more than 1,700 rat neurons. Just 20 minutes of recording gave researchers a never-before-seen look at the neuronal network and allowed them to map more than 300 synaptic connections.“We also used this high-throughput, high-precision chip to measure the effects of drugs on synaptic connections across the rat neuronal network, and now we are developing a wafer-scale system for high-throughput drug screening for neurological disorders such as schizophrenia, Parkinson’s disease, autism, Alzheimer’s disease, and addiction,” said Abbott.This work was also co-authored by Tianyang Ye, Keith Krenek, Rona S. Gertner, Steven Ban, Youbin Kim, Ling Qin, and Wenxuan Wu.The research was supported by Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology of Samsung Electronics, the Catalyst Foundation, the US Army Research Office, the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. How neuron-like implants can offer a better way to treat brain disorders, control prosthetics, or even enhance cognitive abilities Related How our brain cells, or neurons, use electrical signals to communicate and coordinate for higher brain function is one of the biggest questions in all of science.For decades, researchers have used electrodes to listen in on and record these signals.  The patch clamp electrode, an electrode in a thin glass tube, revolutionized neurobiology in the 1970s with its ability to penetrate a neuron and to record quiet but telltale synaptic signals from inside the cell. But this tool lacks the ability to record a neuronal network; it can measure only about 10 cells in parallel.Now, researchers from Harvard University have developed an electronic chip that can perform high-sensitivity intracellular recording from thousands of connected neurons simultaneously. This breakthrough allowed them to map synaptic connectivity at an unprecedented level, identifying hundreds of synaptic connections.“Our combination of the sensitivity and parallelism can benefit fundamental and applied neurobiology alike, including functional connectome construction and high-throughput electrophysiological screening,” said Hongkun Park, Mark Hyman Jr. Professor of Chemistry and Professor of Physics, and co-senior author of the paper.“The mapping of the biological synaptic network enabled by this long sought-after parallelization of intracellular recording also can provide a new strategy for machine intelligence to build next-generation artificial neural network and neuromorphic processors,” said Donhee Ham, Gordon McKay Professor of Applied Physics and Electrical Engineering at the John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), and co-senior author of the paper. “We are developing a wafer-scale system for high-throughput drug screening for neurological disorders such as schizophrenia, Parkinson’s disease, autism, Alzheimer’s disease, and addiction.” — Jeffrey Abbot, first author on the paper Connections are properly ‘rewired,’ recognized, say researchers The future of mind control Neurons reprogrammed in animalslast_img read more
