We compared mental health and wellbeing of school-aged children observed pre-pandemic in 2018 and after the first lockdown was lifted and schools reopened in Fall 2020. Methods: In 2018, we surveyed 476 grade 4-6 students (9-12 years old) from 11 schools in socioeconomically disadvantaged communities in Northern Canada that participate in a school-based health promotion program targeting healthy lifestyle behaviours and mental wellbeing. In November-December 2020, we surveyed 467 grade 4-6 students in the same schools. The 12 questions in the mental health and wellbeing domain were grouped based on correlation and examined using multivariable logistic regression. Results: There were no notable changes pre-pandemic vs. post-lockdown in responses to each of the 12 questions or any of the sub-groupings. Conclusion: Supporting schools to implement health promotion programs may help mitigate the impact of the pandemic on children's mental health and wellbeing. The findings align with recent calls for schools to remain open as long as possible during the pandemic response.

匂いが強力に記憶を誘発する理由とは?新研究で初めて神経基盤を特定

マルセル・プルーストの小説「失われたときを求めて」にはマドレーヌで記憶がよみがえり紅茶のカップから記憶が溢れ出てくるという章があるように、匂いは強力に記憶を呼び起こすことができる。 ノースウェスタン大学ファインバーグ医学部の研究者らによって執筆された新論文は、脳がどのように匂いがそれらの記憶を非常に強力に引き出すことを可能にするかについての神経基盤を特定した最初のものである。この論文は、海馬と人間の嗅覚領域との間の独特の接続性を示している。…
