If you don’t manage time to read big chunks of new study findings or literature here, Fitgenix has brought the gist of what is happening around.
Have a glance at what the recent Research has a say:
1. Amyloid protein will give a clue for Alzheimer’s
The University of Texas at Dallas suggests that periodic evaluation of changing amyloid levels in certain brain structures may offer an important clue into who may be on a trajectory toward Alzheimer’s disease.
2. Feeding and memory link have been found
The search for a mechanism that could explain how the protein complex NCOR1/2 regulates memory has revealed an unexpected connection between the lateral hypothalamus (feeding center) and the hippocampus (the memory centers) of the brain.
3. Fat is influenced by genetics
A recent study has found that whether you store your fat around the trunk or in other parts of your body is highly influenced by genetic factors. This effect is present predominantly in women and to a much lower extent in men.
4. Memory problems if ignored may lead to Alzheimer’s
Studies have shown that engaging in a program of regular exercise improved cognitive function in people who already had memory problems. Exercise may be particularly advantageous for people who carry the APOE4 gene variant, which makes people more susceptible to Alzheimer’s.
5. Coffee can prevent skin disease, Rosacea
One of the studies came with findings that those drinking four or more standard cups of coffee per day are significantly less likely to report a diagnosis of Rosacea than those who drink little or no coffee.
6. Dopamine plays a role in musical pleasure
Recent research reveals that dopamine, a neurotransmitter in the brain plays a significant role in the pleasure people feel when they listen to music.
