Drugs That Can Reverse Memory Loss

Alzheimers is a disease that has affected several, with no possible cure as of now. But researchers at Toronto’s Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) have discovered a drug that can actually reverse the memory loss. According to the recent study published in Molecular Neuropsychiatry, these molecules could bind and activate the receptor targets of the GABA neurotransmitter system, thereby fixing the impairments that may have possibly caused the memory loss. On administering a single dose of these molecules to pre-clinical models with stress-induced memory loss, the memory performance resumed to normal in about 30 minutes. In another experiment replacing pre-clinical models of stress-induced memory loss with that of aging, these molecules showed similar results. These results have much broader applications, which the researchers are yet to find out.
