Abstract: When the body loses control of cholesterol, the heart isn't the only victim; the brain also suffers (see "Greasing Aging's Downward Slide"). In preliminary work presented here on 6 November at the Neurobiology of Aging meeting, researchers revealed new details of how a protein that fights fat buildup in blood vessels helps keep the brain healthy.
