New mouse model for studying the cognitive protection mechanisms in Alzheimer's
New mouse model for studying the cognitive protection mechanisms in Alzheimer’s
Alzheimer's is a neurodegenerative disease that features the accumulation of the beta-amyloid peptide and Tau protein in the brain, which are associated with deficits in the neuronal connections and with dementia. However, researchers have recently discovered a type of people that despite the accumulation of these molecules, they do not develop dementia: the NDAN patients (non-Demented with Alzheimer's disease Neuropathology).

Unbreakable glass inspired by seashells
Scientists from McGill University develop stronger and tougher glass, inspired by the inner layer of mollusk shells. Instead of shattering upon impact, the new material has the resiliency of plastic and could be used to improve cell phone screens in the future, among other applications. While techniques like tempering and laminating can help reinforce glass, they are costly and no longer work once the surface is damaged.
