London: Scientists have identified a key chemical that boosts memory, potentially opening the way to newer treatments for Alzheimer`s.
Examination of the animals` brains reviled that IGF-II had strengthened the cellular connections and mechanisms underlying long-term memory. Researcher Cristina Alberini of Mount Sinai School said: "The implications of these data are far-reaching and give us new clues about how to investigate memory loss and forgetfulness in people with cognitive impairment, like those with Alzheimer`s disease, stroke or dementia."Dutch researchers recently discovered that beta-blocker drugs used to treat heart disease may also help patients to banish bad memories.ANI
