Insulin signaling plays a role in regulating synaptic function, glucose homeostasis, and cognition, a new study reports. Impairments in insulin signaling result in metabolic defects, in addition to memory and learning deficits, mirroring the cognitive impairments associated with Alzheimer's disease.
A new study reveals impaired insulin signaling in the brain negatively affects cognition, memory and learning. The findings shed light on why those with type 2 diabetes are at greater risk of developing Alzheimer's disease.
Research combines antibody precision with toxic oxygen burst to inactivate neural protein and temporarily abolish fear memory in mice.
