New Memory Loss Treatment Used In Research
For older people, dementia can be a possibility. For a long time, science has been looking for a way to reverse this. A new memory loss treatment is now used in research.
Dementia's main concern has been memory loss. Though memory loss is not as severe as that of Alzheimer's, it still takes its toll on many older people. A new way of treating memory loss in dementia has been used in research, with the help of a new molecular mechanism.
The new molecular mechanism hopes to help associative memory. Associative memory is important in such functions like remembering people and places in the long term. A protein called CRTC1 is also needed by the hippocampus in order to keep associative memory going.
CRTC1 function could be restored using the new molecular mechanism being developed for memory loss. The study has used lab mice in order to test out this new mechanism. Mice who have been given the new treatment were able to remember a negative experience in the past. Mice though that have been given only a simple treatment did not show any sign of improvement.
The study has shown that the new molecular mechanism can reverse memory loss. This is true even in the late stages of dementia, according to the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona's site. The study has also shown the importance of molecular treatment has in memory disorders.
Dr. Carlos Saura, lead author of the study, has said that he is excited about the new treatment. Applications of the treatment in clinics could potentially give hope for many old people who have dementia, as Science Daily reports. Dementia especially in older people is a degenerative disease that has not found any cure as of yet.
Many scientists are looking for ways to reverse the effects of dementia. So far many of the treatments are still experimental. A new memory loss treatment is now being used in research. A study has also shown that Alzheimer's disease may go all the way back to the womb.

Alzheimer's disease afflicts mainly those with advanced age. Alzheimer's roots though may go all the way back to the womb.

Sleeping Too Much Can Be Damaging For Mental Health, New Study Suggests
Considering that the average person needs 7 to 8 hours of sleep, how can a longer duration of sleep affect ones mental health? What are the adverse effects of excessive sleeping that scientists consider as mentally damaging? Is it that serious for it to be associated with mental health? Find out what experts have to say
Excessive Sleep Is a Sign of Dementia; Here Are Other Symptoms
Excessive sleep is a symptom of dementia, but not the cause of dementia, researchers have found. The new study also found that people who sleep for over 9 hours every day increase their risks of developing dementia two fold within 10 years. And then, MRI scans of the brain reveal that people who sleep in excess of 9 hours daily have smaller brain volumes compared with those who sleep less.

Netflix is Raising Prices, Here’s How it Now Compares to Other Streaming Services
Once a brand gains the trust and loyalty of its market, it is only logical that it attempts to flex its dominant muscle. Such is the tale that fits the recent price hike coming from the stable of Netflix. Having baited consumers into believing that streaming, and not cable subscription, is the right way to go, Netflix has now decided to drop its own form of a bombshell on consumers in the form of price increment. The news, which was announced earlier this year, detailed that Netflix would be raising prices across all of its plans by 13 to 18 percent.
