A new study reports on the long term impact of parental stress on the health of their offspring and future generations.
A new study reports the shortening of telomere length can be statistically linked to the active mechanism responsible for Alzheimer's disease.
Telomere lengthening resulted in structural changes in the brain, including cortical thickening. By contrast, telomere shortening is associated with gray matter reduction, specifically in the precuneus.
Unsupportive parenting and early life stress can lead to premature aging and associated health risks in children. Researchers say adults who faced early life stress had shorter telomeres than their peers who did not.
Childhood adversity and lifetime psychopathology are associated with shorter telomeres and higher mtDNA content, a new study reports.
To live to be 100, you need to keep inflammation low and telomeres long, a new study reports.
Researchers have discovered new details about the biology of telomeres which could shed new light on cancer, aging and neuroinflammation.
According to researchers, meditation and listening to music may help to alter biomarkers associated with cellular aging and Alzheimer's disease in adults experiencing memory loss.
NASA scientists have published the results of the Kelly Twin Study, which revealed how the body adapts to life in space, compared to life on Earth. The findings revealed that, in space, telomeres are unexpectedly longer, the immune system responds appropriately, and variability in gene expression alters.
New mothers who sleep less than seven hours a night six months after giving birth had an increase in biological age of between three to seven years compared to new moms who slept for seven or more hours.
A small molecule, 6-thio-dG, may provide a new approach to treating currently untreatable pediatric brain cancers, researchers report.
