Carriers of the so-called KIBRA T allele have better memories than those who don’t have this gene variant.
Researchers working with adult mice have discovered that learning and memory were profoundly affected when they altered the amounts of a certain protein in specific parts of the mammals' brains.
A protein discovered in fruit fly eyes has brought a Johns Hopkins team closer to understanding how the human heart and other organs automatically "right size" themselves, a piece of information that may hold clues to controlling cancer.
A drug used to improve blood flow to the brain also could help improve learning and memory and reduce the risk of Alzheimer's disease, according to a new study released today by investigators at the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) and Arizona State University.
U.S. medical investigators say they have discovered a link between the brain protein KIBRA and Alzheimer's disease. The medical scientists at the Translational Genomics Research Institute in Phoenix said their finding might lead to new treatments for the memory-robbing disease.
