Spermadine Grants Insight into a Mechanism of Age-Related Memory Dysfunction

Spermadine induces greater autophagy, the collection of cellular housekeeping processes that is associated with many of the methods demonstrated to modestly slow aging in laboratory species. Researchers here use dietary spermadine in flies to investigate one specific mechanism involved in age-related neurodegeneration. When it comes down to it, a great deal of fundamental life science research is a matter of finding or creating two similar situations and then using the small differences between them as a tool to probe the complexities of biology.
