Scientists at the Gladstone Institutes have discovered that an FDA-approved anti-epileptic drug reverses memory loss and alleviates other Alzheimer's-related impairments in an animal model of the disease. Scientists in the laboratory of Lennart Mucke, MD, who directs neurological research at Gladstone, conducted the research on mice genetically modified to simulate key aspects of Alzheimer's disease. In the study, they show how levetiracetam–a drug commonly prescribed for patients...

Monkey Brains And Mind Control
2012-07-29 06:45:39

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Researchers have for the first time shown that they can control the behavior of monkeys by using pulses of blue light to very specific brain cells. This is an advance for optogenetics, a state-of-the-art method for making slight connectivity between brain activity and behavior. According to the researchers, similar light-based mind control could likely also be made to work in humans for therapeutic needs and care. "We are the...

In clinical trial, mixture developed at MIT appears to help overcome loss of connections between brain cells. A clinical trial of an Alzheimer´s disease treatment developed at MIT has found that the nutrient cocktail can improve memory in patients with early Alzheimer´s. The results confirm and expand the findings of an earlier trial of the nutritional supplement, which is designed to promote new connections between brain cells. Alzheimer´s patients gradually lose those...
