Long-term cognition via minimizing neuroinflammation

Neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease (AD), Parkinson’s disease (PD), and Multiple Sclerosis (MS) are characterized by neuronal degeneration and neuronal death in specific regions of the central nervous system. Neurodegeneration is mediated by inflammatory and neurotoxic mediators. Though inflammation is crucial in the onset and the progression of neurodegenerative diseases, anti-inflammatory drugs do not… Continue reading Long-term cognition via minimizing neuroinflammation

Long Term Cognition and Longevity via Autophagy

One of the key drivers of aging is cellular senescence, a state of irreversible growth arrest induced by many pro-tumorigenic stresses. Senescent cells accumulate late in life and at sites of age-related pathologies, where they contribute to disease onset and progression through complex cell and non-cell autonomous effects. Pharmacological treatments have been shown to extend… Continue reading Long Term Cognition and Longevity via Autophagy
