"The most reliable anti-aging finding—that reduction in caloric intake can modestly extend life and prevent the symptoms of aging in many animals—disappears when it’s tested on wild mice or on mice kept at comfortably warm temperatures." - @s_r_constantin
^ “Part of the activation energy required to start any task comes from the picture you get in your head when you imagine doing it. It may not be that going for a run is actually costly; but if it feels costly, if the picture in your head looks like a slog, then you will need a bigger expenditure of will to lace up.”

This is huge. 3D cultures of human induced pluripotent stem cells develop into multi-layered retina organoids mimicking cell-type specific gene expression of adult human retinal cells. Neat "detail": first report of RGC light response recordings from post mortem human retinas.
