Study points to possible treatments and confirms distinction between memory loss due to aging and that of Alzheimers.
A team of Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) researchers, led by Nobel laureate Eric R. Kandel, MD, has found that deficiency of a protein called RbAp48 in the hippocampus is a significant contributor to age-related memory loss and that this form of memory loss is reversible. The study, conducted in postmortem human brain cells and in mice, also offers the strongest causal evidence that age-related memory loss and Alzheimers disease are distinct conditions. The findings were published today in the online edition of Science Translational Medicine.
