A Switch in Time Saves Mind
Aging rats preserve their memories by adjusting their responses to stimulation
Abstract: If we have a choice, most of us would prefer to grow old like newsman Mike Wallace, who at 87 is still sticking it to shifty politicians and louche lawyers on the television program 60 Minutes. A new study identifies a mechanism that allows gracefully aging rodents to maintain their memories. The results might help researchers design treatments to stave off age-related mental decline.
