Bangladesh, Aug. 13 -- Washington, Aug 13 (Xinhua/UNB) -- The US scientists have mapped a part of the molecular machinery that helps the brain maintain long-term memories, providing new targets against Alzheimer's disease characterized by memory loss.
The study published on Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, outlined how a protein called CPEB3 primes neurons to store memories that stand the test of time in mouse cells.
The findings offered a never-before-seen view into one of the brain's most universal and basic cellular functions.
"At its core, memory is a biological process, not unlike a heartbeat. With today's study, we've shed new light on the molecular underpinnings behind our brain's ability to make, k...
