Support cells in the brain offer a new strategy to boost memory

A study by scientists from the Gladstone Institutes shows that decreasing the number of A2A adenosine receptors in a particular type of brain cells called astrocytes improved memory in healthy mice. What’s more, reducing receptor levels also prevented memory impairments in a mouse model of Alzheimer’s disease.

Published today in Nature Neuroscience, the findings… Support cells in the brain offer a new strategy to boost memory
