Neuroscientists Identify Mechanism for Long Term Memory Storage
Since the establishment of the LCS Foundation five years ago, we have focused on one of our primary missions: investing in work that will lead toward Alzheimer’s first survivor. This focus is why news coming out of the University of Iowa’s neuroscience research labs is stirring up enthusiasm.
The university's neuroscience research team discovered a biochemical folding mechanism present in mice with neurogenerative diseases that when reactivated, showed the mice regaining their long-term memory.
A full report of the team’s findings was published in the March 23 issue of the journal Science Advances.
