A statistical analysis of chemical tags on DNA may help unify disparate theories of aging.
Protein buildups like those seen around neurons in Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other brain diseases occur in all aging cells, a new study suggests. Learning their significance may reveal new strategies for treating age-related diseases.
New work shows that neurons and other brain cells use DNA double-strand breaks, often associated with cancer, neurodegeneration and aging, to quickly express genes related to learning and memory.
New research makes a molecular connection between the brain and aging — and shows that overactive neurons can shorten life span.
While we sleep, one kind of slow brain wave helps to reinforce memories, but a competing wave weakens them.
A unique neurological “functional fingerprint” allows scientists to explore the influence of genetics, environment and aging on brain connectivity.
