    You didn't mention it, but a big reason Neurodegenerative diseases are on the rise is also because fewer people are dying from Cancer and Cardiovascular (heart attacks and strokes) along with many diseases managed long term like HIV and Diabetes. So basically, we've increased the odds that we'll find out if we get a neurodegenerative disease like Alzheimer's.

      I'm wondering how much these treatments will cost... I often wonder how the creators of breakthrough medications in America can sleep at night, knowing that after they slap patents all over their invention, they proceed to inflate medication costs well above what it is worth, so they can profit off individuals in their own nation as well as medical services in other countries around the world.

    When I was a kid, dying at 60 years of age or early 60s was pretty regular... wasn't a big shock. If you made it to 60 or so years, was sort of considered more or less a good go, that people had their innings so to speak. Today, if you don't make it to 80, it's sorta considered too soon and a shame. So it's not surprising that a lot of late age ailments are on the rise that didn't exist much before or in the same numbers.

    One lesser AI headline I liked this year was its use in the Herculaneum scrolls -- a massive collection of historical texts burnt to near ash BEFORE the centuries buried them. Yet, with modern scanners & AI trained to pick out the ink from the char, they've slowly started reading what this library had to say. [Just "purple" so far, but very early days...]

    Fun fact Joe, when a drug ends with "mab" it's usually a Monoclonal AnitBody that targets a specific thing (like amyloid plaques in this case). Also it's usually pronounced mab like the a in nap, "ahh" ❤❤

    I hope there are science teachers out there screening these for their students each yr. I wish that U📺 vids like this existed when I was a kid.
    So much of science is delivered as existing knowledge and as a kid it’s often difficult to appreciate how our understanding is changing in the here and now. It wasn’t until well into Hubble’s existence that I really started to appreciate how significant it’s contributions were.
    It would have made science so much more engaging to get an annual summary and idea of what some of the key areas that those discoveries are enabling further development on going forward. I’d like to think I would have listened and been inspired.

    Both arms of the phase 3 trial for lecanemab saw participants worsen. The lecanemab arm worsened a little bit slower. It definitely cleared plaques--so it wasn't a question of successful "target engagement". I still think there is plenty of reason to question the amyloid theory of AD, basically.

    Sometimes I can go into nitpicking mode about a CZcamsr's content. But I have nothing to nitpick with you, Joe. Your channel is perfect, which is why I keep coming back after two years.

    Hahaha, the glasses bit at the end was top notch stuff.

    That taking off glasses bit at the end was certainly effective at keeping my attention, was amusing to see it and kept watching to see at what points you would do it again. I suggest you make a mental note or something to create something like that with each advertisement, if only to keep viewer attention for just that bit longer :)

    Nice touch by adding the crackling fire sound effect to this video.
    You rock, Joe.

      I found the cracking / clicking noise to be extremely distracting and unpleasant. I had to bring up my audio equalizer and put a low-pass filter on to be able to finish watching it.

    Oh no lol Can you do a video on why some people don't get hungover? It's so interesting watching all of ya'll and my family are wondering why we're "missing out"

    Ok it worked. The glasses thing. First time I watch all the way through the Brilliant ad in a long while. The sound got my attention and the bit made me watch.

    As gravitational wave observatories get more sensitive and sophisticated, it would be interesting to see how they can be used for SETI research, such as trying to detect if anyone in the universe is using Alcubierre Drives for FTL, or detecting artificial gravity in use, or other artificial space-time manipulations.

      It would be interesting yes. None the less, such observations is likely in the far future, or never.
      One could argue, that we would likely have to build FTL ourselves, to know what to look for, or recognising any signal we see.
      Then there's likely the same problems as to picking up communication.
      Since according to our current understanding, a wake from a ship traveling at FTL, would probably still be limited to the speed of C.
      Hence, knowing whether we would be right about a signal (proof of FTL travel), would require that they fly closer. Else any evidence/way to confirm, would be long gone, when we recieve a signal.
