Gene Clue Found in Memory Loss

The journal Science Translational Medicine reports that a team at Columbia University thinks it has found a gene that figures into memory loss that is not related to Alzheimer's disease. The study, conducted on donated brains, was small. The report is summarized in the Tampa Bay Times.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
