Boosting memory: Serotonin receptor may be the key
A recent study gains fresh insight into the specific receptors that are involved in creating memories. The scientists hope that, in the future, this discovery could help to battle age-related cognitive decline.
Understanding the nuts and bolts of memory might one day help us to enhance it.

However, leaps and bounds are currently being made in the field of memory research.
How does exercise keep the heart young? A recent study published in Nature Communications identifies a link between exercise and the heart's ability to regenerate new muscle cells under normal conditions and after a heart attack.
The research, which was conducted on groups of mice, could have dramatic implications for “public health, physical education, and the rehabilitation of cardiac patients.”
The first study authors are Ana Vujic, Ph.D., who works in the Harvard Department of Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology in Cambridge, MA, and Dr. Carolin Lerchenmüller, of Harvard Medical School (HMS), also in Cambridge, and the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.
According to previous research, our hearts have very little capacity to regenerate themselves.
