Out of Whack, Out of Mind

Misaligned brain cells might sap memory as we age

Mitch Leslie

Abstract: Your kindergarten teacher was right--neatness counts, even in the brain. Cells that slip out of alignment with age might undermine memory, according to a new study of monkeys. The work might explain the nagging question of why recall falters as we grow older even though we don't normally lose brain cells.
