JNCASR team fully restores long-term memory in mice with Alzheimer’s 

JNCASR researchers along with French counterparts have been able to fully restore neuron to neuron connections and long-term memory in mice with Alzheimer’s disease using a small molecule that activates two enzymes. The molecule attached to carbon nanospheres was able to breach the blood-brain barrier and reach the brain in sufficient concentration. Using a small … Continue reading JNCASR team fully restores long-term memory in mice with Alzheimer’s 

IISc team identifies a biomarker for early-stage Alzheimer’s

IISc researchers have ascertained that decrease in F-actin protein level results in early behavioural changes that would eventually lead to Alzheimer’s disease. F-actin thus behaves as an early biomarker of Alzheimer’s. Restoring the F-actin to normal levels resulted in Alzheimer mice behaving like healthy mice. IISc researchers have ascertained that decrease in F-actin protein level results in … Continue reading IISc team identifies a biomarker for early-stage Alzheimer’s

NCBS researchers find a biomarker for stress-induced memory loss

Timely intervention to prevent or delay hippocampus-linked memory loss that occurs as a result of chronic stress may now be possible, thanks to the discovery of a biomarker — a reduction in hippocampal volume at an early time point after the onset of chronic stress. The reduction in the hippocampal volume is not only linked … Continue reading NCBS researchers find a biomarker for stress-induced memory loss
