Scientists May Have Found Mechanism Behind Cognitive Decline in Aging

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension, neuroscience

Scientists at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus have discovered what they believe to be the central mechanism behind cognitive decline associated with normal aging.

“The mechanism involves the mis-regulation of a brain protein known as CaMKII which is crucial for memory and learning,” said the study’s co-senior author Ulli Bayer, PhD, professor of pharmacology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. “This study directly suggests specific pharmacological treatment strategies.”

The study was published today in the journal ‘Science Signaling.’
