Regulating Body Temperature May Ease Alzheimer’s Disease Symptoms

Regulating Body Temperature May Ease Alzheimer’s Disease Symptoms
Researchers at Université Laval in Canada demonstrated that aging mice in a model of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) were less able to regulate their body temperatures, and when exposed to a cold environment showed increased AD manifestations. These results suggest correction of thermoregulation might be a therapeutic avenue for Alzheimer’s. The study, “Impaired thermoregulation and beneficial effects of thermoneutrality in the 3xTg-AD model of Alzheimer’s disease (AD),” was published in Neurobiology of Aging. The accentuated incidence of AD in older people is accompanied by a reduction in energy metabolism and co
