The protein called "sirtuin" has long been studied with regard to the regulation of aging, but now MIT researchers say it can also boost memory and multiply learning abilities. Look for intelligence enhancing therapies alongside those for treating neurological disorders within five years. R.C.J.
Here's what MIT says about its own work: Over the past 20 years, biologists have shown that proteins called sirtuins can slow the aging process in many animal species. Now an MIT team led by Professor Li-Huei Tsai has revealed that sirtuins can also boost memory and brainpower — a finding that could lead to new drugs for Alzheimer’s disease and other neurological disorders.
