Memory damage reversed in mice

Memory damage reversed in mice
Interesting article! Those who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis less likely to suffer from Alzheimers! That's got to be a plus for them given the amount of pain they have to live with day by day.
If this discovery does prove to help those who suffer from Alzheimers then I say it can't come quick enough. What a wonderful thought that maybe even the damage could be reversed. The slow decline of a loved one is so hard to watch. It's confusing and wrought with great pain for the one whose mind is going, and even more painful for those who can only stand by and feel so helpless.

Absolutely fascinating. Almost makes you feel good about arthritis. I am sending the post to my duaghter, Lizzie, who teaches cognitive neuro and specializes in memory. She probably already knows about it, but just in case...
