How a small molecule halts the spread of a toxic protein associated with Alzheimer ’s progression
Alzheimer ’s disease destroys brain cells in part by promoting the formation of insoluble clumps that contain a protein called tau. Not only are these “tau aggregates” toxic for the cells that harbor them, but they also invade and destroy neighboring brain cells, or neurons, which speeds the cognitive d ecline associated with the Alzheimer’s.For those reasons, Alzheimer ’s researchers have been intensely interested in therapies aimed at either preventing tau aggregation or blocking its spread.Now, researchers at theUCLA School of Nursing and the department of neurology at theDavid Geffen Schoo...

Tackling the challenges of living with multiple health conditions
We know that many people with arthritis also live with other conditions– this is known as‘multimorbidity’. Living with many conditions can have a huge impact on individuals: there can be more medication and medical appointments to manage, or one condition could impact on a person’s ability to manage another. It also has a knock-on effect on health and care, for example a ten-minute consultation with a GP may not be enough time to discuss the impact of many conditions. We believe it is one of the largest and most complex challenges facing our health and care systems today.Our policy and campaigns tea...

Why It ’s So Hard to Learn Another Language After Childhood
Everyone knows that picking up a second language grows more difficult with age. And in a new study, scientists have pinpointed the age at which your chances of reaching total fluency plummet: 10. The study, published in the journal Cognition, found that it’s “nearly impossible” for language learners to reach native-level fluency if they start learning a second tongue after age 10 — though that doesn’t seem to be because language skills go downhill at this age. “It turns out you’re still learning fast,” says study co-author Joshua Hartshorne, an assistant professor of psycholo...
