Loss of memory in Alzheimer's mice models reversed through gene therapy

4/23/2014
Alzheimer's disease is the first cause of dementia and affects some 400,000 people in Spain alone. However, no effective cure has yet been found. One of the reasons for this is the lack of knowledge on the cellular mechanisms which cause alterations in nerve transmissions and the loss of memory in the initial stages of the disease. Researchers from the Institute of Neuroscience at the Un... [Comments]
