Young blood rejuvenates old brains : Nature Medicine : Nature Publishing Group
Age-related cognitive decline occurs in many mammals, including humans, resulting from a decline in hippocampal function, and it is associated with reduced synaptic plasticity in hippocampal circuits. In this issue of Nature Medicine, a new study shows that cognitive impairment observed in aged mice is largely reversible following exposure to the blood of young mice.
