Alzheimer’s Study Finds a Target in a Stress Neurotransmitter

Alzheimer’s Study Finds a Target in a Stress Neurotransmitter
University of California researchers recently showed that the targeting of a neurotransmitter involved in stress responses significantly reduced cellular and tissue damage while preventing the onset of cognitive impairment in a transgenic mice model of Alzheimer’s disease. The study, entitled “Corticotropin-releasing factor receptor-1 antagonism mitigates beta amyloid pathology and cognitive and synaptic deficits in a mouse model of Alzheimer's disease,” was published online in Alzheimer’s & Dementia: The Journal of the Alzheimer’s Association.
