Experts have found a protein that double improves memory
Memory 56% of people depends on the number NPTX2 protein contained in human body
The initiators of new laboratory tests say that during the implementation of the projects they have discovered a protein that improves memory in humans.
Such a statement was made by the staff of the University of Iowa. According to the scientists, the researchers found a link between high levels of a protein called NPTX2 and cognitive abilities of representatives of the weak and the stronger sex. Doctors hope that the results of their experiments will help to develop a drug from brain atrophy.
It should be noted that during the implementation of the laboratory observations of the doctors involved more than 200 elderly men and women. 135 respondents suffered from cognitive impairment, 64 people had dementia, and 86 - were completely healthy. Scientists have found 2 protein levels which indicate the presence or absence of Alzheimer's disease.
