You leave your car in a vast, crowded parking lot, and when you return, you have no idea where it is. The ensuing search is frustrating, time-consuming and a little embarrassing. That experience occurs more frequently as we get older, because the functions of the part of the brain that encodes...
Blood from human umbilical cords appears to have helped reverse memory loss in aging mice
The findings are just in mice and debate swirls around the anti-aging pursuits.
Oh, the proverbial fountain of youth. As we age, can we somehow tap into it? Researchers are exploring this in a literal way as they study the effects of blood from human umbilical cords—which is about as young as it gets—on aging mice. Reporting in the journal Nature...
A protein identified in human umbilical cord blood has been shown to rejuvenate and revitalize the learning and memory ability of older mice.
What old brains need is a shot of young blood — and the younger the better. It may sound like a metaphor employed by a randy octogenarian. But new research on mice suggests it can be taken quite literally. Writing in the journal Nature, Stanford University anti-aging researchers reported Wednesday...
In mice, a protein derived from human umbilical cord plasma rejuvenates the brain.
Young blood can rejuvenate the mind. Now a study has identified a protein in umbilical cord blood that can boost memory and brain function in aged mice
Ageing drives changes in neuronal and cognitive function, the decline of which is a major feature of many neurological disorders. The hippocampus, a brain region subserving roles of spatial and episodic memory and learning, is sensitive to the detrimental effects of ageing at morphological and molecular levels.

It turns out the fountain of youth might be coursing through human umbilical cords. At least that's part of the findings from a team of researchers at Stanford University that saw some impressive results when the substance was injected into old mice suffering from cognitive decline.

Several studies now suggest that young plasma has revitalizing properties—and with results this intriguing, it’s no wonder there is drama brewing among the scientists involved.
Scientists hope protein infusion which rejuvenated brains of aged mice could combat mental decline in older people Scientists have reversed memory and learning problems in aged mice with infusions of a protein found in human umbilical cord blood. Show More Summary
The baby was born alive. So the abortion nurse calmly cut the umbilical cord, and threw the living baby in a red biohazard bag.
Post by Jeanne Sager. The umbilical cord is something women carry around for months and never really get to know -- after all, it's cut and discarded shortly after a baby's born. But the stretchy conduit that links a growing baby to the placenta is quite literally the cord of life. Show More Summary

Today, transplanted umbilical cord blood can treat or cure more than 80 conditions.
Before we begin, don’t tell me the National Enquirer isn’t reputable — that is not the point of this story. The National Enquirer has an umbilical cord tethered to Team Trump, and only writes what Trump wants them to write. So the big question this morning is why Team Trump wants to smear Michael Flynn. Now, the […]
For parents, storing their newborn baby's umbilical cord blood is a way to preserve potentially lifesaving cells. Now, a group of researchers has found a way to expand and preserve certain cord-blood cells as a potential treatment for type 1 diabetes.
