Reversing Alzheimer’s gene blockade can bring back memory

News from the web:

Breaking a ‘gene blockade’ could pave the way for restoring memory loss and other cognitive functions in patients suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, a new study has suggested.

Researchers have shown that an enzyme overproduced in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients creates a barrier that shuts off genes essential to form new memories.

Furthermore, by inhibiting that enzyme in mice, the MITneuroscientists were able to reverse Alzheimer’s symptoms.
