Longer Telomeres Linked To Lower Risk Of Dementia Telomeres are caps at the end of chromosomes that protect DNA from degrading. But when a cell divides and the chromosomes replicate, telomeres shorten slightly. The extent of telomere shortening is not only connected to cellular aging but also to the risk of age-related diseases. In fact, [...]

But could there be a situation in which physical activity has negative consequences and [...]

Your Brain Shape Dictates Its Function

By |2023-10-27T11:30:32-04:00October 27th, 2023|Brain Health|

Have neuroscientists been barking up the wrong tree for the last hundred years when it comes to cognitive function? Brain activity, they say, is solely down to the complex web of connections that transmit signals linking specialized populations of cells in different regions of the brain. But game-changing new research suggests this view is mistaken. [...]
