How have abortion rights changed after the fall of Roe and where are we headed?
Post-Roe Landscape 8.23.22
The national landscape of abortion rights has changed rapidly following the Supreme Court ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson’s Women’s Health Organization. That ruling effectively dismantled the constitutional right to abortion, originally codified by the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade. And so began a mosaic of changes across states. Several states had trigger laws ready, which could ban abortions in the wake of the decision. Activation Laws in Utah, Wyoming, and Idaho have been temporarily blocked due to legal challenges. As those challenges unfold, a bipartisan bill known as The Reproductive Freedom for All Act seeks to codify reproductive protections.

New study finds a way to improve working memory for people over 65
Study of memory and electrical brain stimulation 8.23.22
a new peer-reviewed study published in Nature Neuroscience found a new way to enhance the memories of people over 65. This was through low-frequency currents sent to the brain’s parietal cortex, which improved working memory to some extent from long-term memory.
