Moving our body changes our brain. More evidence that exercise (even simple #walking) improves brain health in the elderly. Study shows activity reduces pro-inflammatory microglial states in humans. https://www.jneurosci.org/content/early/2021/11/11/JNEUROSCI.1483-21.2021 #brainhealth
Human heart muscle cells don’t multiply after birth, but scientists @HopkinsMedicine have new evidence in mice that manipulating certain nerve cells might trigger formation of new muscle; a promising discovery for restoring function after #heartattacks. https://www.eurekalert.org/news-releases/936225
@SAngeli_PhD research @BuckInstitute "Determine if use of the widely-prescribed drug cyclosporin A slows the progression of brain aging"
That cup of joe might be more helpful than you think. Researchers @uwaterloo found that #caffeine increases reactions to moving targets. Think safer bike rides, street crossings, even avoiding cart crashes while grocery shopping! https://www.eurekalert.org/news-releases/936436
Join us for Buck webinar on Dec 9: Could taming cellular #senescence help stop the scourge of #Alzheimers, #cancer and other chronic diseases? Buck was recently awarded $27 Million to find out! Hear from 3 Buck scientists on our discovery process. https://www.buckinstitute.org/events/27-million-in-federal-grants-propels-the-bucks-pioneering-research-in-cellular-senescence-as-the-nih-looks-to-research-in-aging-to-stop-the-scourge-of-alzheimers-and-other-chronic-d/
