Reversing the clock: A breakthrough treatment restores cognitive ability in aging mice

The new treatment restores aging brains

Scientists from Stanford University claim to have developed antibodies that block the aging of brain cells. They say that this gives older mice the same cognitive abilities as younger ones.

In a press release, Tony Wyss Coray, senior author of the study, said that \”the mice became smarter\”. \”Blocking the gene CD22 on microglia restored cognitive function of older mice.\” CD22 could be a target for treating neurodegenerative disorders.
