New study reveals that brain signals in specific regions change over a lifespan in ways that might be important for maintaining flexibility — ScienceDaily

The brain is a complex organ — a network of nerve cells, or neurons, producing thought, memory, action, and feeling. How does this complex system change from childhood to adulthood to late life in order to maintain optimal behavioral responses? These questions were put to the test by a group of University of Miami psychologists who studied hundreds of fMRI brain scans, from two separate datasets, to see how the variability of brain signals changes or remains the same during…

an open source Webpack analyzer

Ryan Albrecht | Pinterest engineer, Growth At Pinterest we know performance is a feature. Countless experiments have shown that when Pinners have a smooth and responsive experience they find more creative ideas for their life. But there’s a problem: as our web app has grown in complexity, the size of JavaScript Pinners download has ballooned.
