New Approach to Alzheimer’s Could Reverse Memory Loss

Updated February 23, 2019

A new approach to Alzheimer’s disease (AD) — that may eventually make it possible to reverse memory loss — is outlined in a paper published in the journal Brain. The research was led by Zhen Yan, PhD, SUNY Distinguished Professor of physiology and biophysics. “In this paper, we have not only identified the epigenetic factors that contribute to the memory loss, we also found ways to temporarily reverse them in an animal model of AD,” says Yan.
