Scientists from the Laboratory of Neurodegenerative Diseases (CNRS/CEA/University of Paris-Saclay) and the Neurocentre Magendie (Inserm/University of Bordeaux) have just highlighted the decisive role played by a metabolic pathway in memory impairment in Alzheimer's disease. Their work, to be published on 3 March 2020 in Cell Metabolism, also shows that a particular amino acid intake, in the form of a dietary supplement, restores the spatial memory affected early in mice models of the disease. This is a promising avenue for alleviating Alzheimer's-related memory loss.
