Support cells in brain offer new strategy to boost memory

26 enero 2015

A new memory regulator in the brain involving adenosine receptors has been uncovered by researchers, which may offer a potential treatment to improve memory in Alzheimer’s disease. The findings suggest that astrocytes–star-shaped cells that are abundant in the brain and support neuronal function–are important regulators of information storage, and their dysfunction might lead to memory decline in disease.
