Tapping Into Renewal

Compound that boosts cell division slows Huntington's disease in mice

Mitch Leslie

Abstract: Unlock your latent abilities, and you could have abs of steel or make a fortune in real estate--or so the late-night infomercials promise. Hyped sales pitches aside, plugging into underutilized talents could help the brain resist the devastation of Huntington's disease. A new study shows that cranking up the organ's capacity to produce neurons delays the disease's progress in mice. The work could lead to a therapy for this untreatable illness.
