Yellowdig helps you connect and have meaningful conversations with your peers, instructors, and other people around your organization. The posts you make and the articles you share should be things that will genuinely interest you and yours peers. Most importantly, read a lot and comment often. This is your community to help create and the more you put in the more you’ll get out!

In Yellowdig you get points for how much you engage and interact with others by posting or commenting, and also for receiving comments, reactions, and accolades from other people reading your contributions.

You can track your point earning in the main point display at the right and get even more information in the “Show Details” area beneath that. That area also describes how your grade is calculated.

My answer:

NewsLink: Development of the Brain

1. The topic or rather the keyword I was interested in and which I researched vehemently on was the issue of dementia

2. The article I focused on exclusively centered on the continuing work on the issue and in particular as regards to the overall understanding of the issue, its prevalence, the causes, the risk factors, and the related costs among other implications to the mainstream societies.

3. The research was conducted in reference to the existing literature in the field as well as the projected objectives in creating more understanding of pertinent issues.

4. To be honest, a rather interesting factor that attracted my attention to the topic was the fact that the issue has overly been overlooked as more people are being affected by the condition.

5. To this end, the deduction I can make is that the healthcare industry and the society as a whole must be ready to address the issue to the latter for optimal effectiveness in all aspects.



Hey everyone!

I would like to share the article I used for my Module 4 News Link Journal about Alzheimer’s Disease. This article is about how the University of California researchers used a molecule present in green tea to uncover more molecules that may break up protein tangles in the brain, which are known to cause Alzheimer’s disease and other disorders. I found this very interesting because this discovery offers up new possibilities for treating Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and other neurodegenerative diseases by developing drugs that target the structure of tau fibers and other amyloid fibrils.
