Protein Linked to Alzheimer’s Shows Potential to Improve Memory
Researchers at the  the Salk Institute, in California, have shown, in a mouse study, that increasing the levels of a specific protein in the brain leads to improvement of memory deficits associated with Alzheimer’s disease. The new study, titled “Neuregulin 1 Improves Cognitive Deficits And Neuropathology In An Alzheimer’s Disease Model,” was published in the journal Scientific Reports The protein, neuregulin-1, has several forms and functions in the brain, most of which are known to play an important role in many disorders, such as Parkinson's disease, autism, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and schizophrenia.
