Gene discovery raises hope of treatment for memory loss

Scientist that found that mice carrying a defective version of a gene performed better than others when trained to swim to a hidden platform in a water tank. "If a person were reading a page of a textbook, it might take several times to memorise it," said Mauro Costa-Mattioli, a researcher on the team. "A human equivalent of these mice would get the information right away." The scientists now hope to follow up their discovery by finding a drug that improves memory by interfering with the memory-blocking protein. "If such a pill could be generated, it might provide a new method for treating people with memory-related disease such as Alzheimer's," said Dr Costa-Mattioli, whose study appears in the journal Cell.
