Scientists are reporting success in using ultrasound to treat cognitive dysfunction in mice with simulated vascular dementia and Alzheimer's disease, which are the two most common forms of dementia. Applied to the whole brain, the ultrasound improved both the formation of blood vessels and the regeneration of nerve cells... Continue Reading Ultrasound used to treat dementia in mice Catego
A compelling study from a team of researchers at the University of Copenhagen has demonstrated a way to completely stop a body's ability to store fat. In experiments with mice, the team showed that genetically deleting a single enzyme resulted in the animal not being able to gain weight, even when fed a fatty diet...

A new study has successfully reversed both the biological and behavioral hallmarks of Alzheimer's disease in mouse models. The research found that slowly depleting the presence of a certain enzyme can reverse the formation of amyloid plaques in the brain. Illustrating the tricky path current Alzheimer's research faces, the study was published literally hours after giant pharmaceutical company
Anxiety is an important emotional state, having evolved to help us be on guard in the face of potential threats. But in the modern world anxiety manifests in a multitude of dysfunctional ways, leaving many people suffering from debilitating disorders. A new study has opened up a potential pathway to future anti-anxiety treatments after effectively demonstrating the identification of specific
The fascinating connection between diabetes and Alzheimer's disease has been studied for several years with some scientists going so far as suggesting the two conditions are different stages of the same disease. A team of researchers has now discovered that a drug initially developed to treat type 2 diabetes has "significantly reversed memory loss" in early animal trials...Continue Reading Di
Not getting fat or developing diabetes despite enjoying a high-fat diet is the dream of many a fast-food fan. Although such dreams remain just that for us humans, they've become reality for mice involved in a study at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. The activation of a protein pathway in fat cells in the mice allowed the animals to chow down on a high-fat diet without b
Researchers at the University of Florida have developed a new gene therapy that shows promise in fighting multiple sclerosis (MS). Testing the technique in mice, the team found that the treatment was effective in preventing animals from developing the mouse equivalent of the disease, and almost completely reversed the symptoms in those that were already suffering from it...Continue Reading Ne
