Additionally, people diagnosed with melanoma were at a fourfold risk of developing Parkinson's.
Low intensity electrical stimulation to specific brain areas can help to improve short term verbal memory, researchers report.
Researchers report senescent, or Zombie, cells accumulate in certain neurons prior to cognitive loss. By preventing accumulation of these cells, researchers were able to diminish apoptosis, memory loss and tau aggregation.
