Neuronal structures associated with memory sprout in response to novel molecules

Drug candidates protect neurons against damage from substance implicated in Alzheimer's disease

12-Apr-2016

Chemists at the University of California San Diego have designed a set of molecules that promote microscopic, anatomical changes in neurons associated with the formation and retention of memories. These drug candidates also prevent deterioration of the same neuronal structures in the presence of ...
