Working with rats, neuroscientists at Johns Hopkins University have pinpointed a mechanism in the brain responsible for a common type of age-related memory loss. The work, published today in Current Biology, sheds light on the workings of aging brains and may deepen our understanding of Alzheimer’s disease and similar disorders in humans.

About The Study: Researchers found no evidence of a net association between the COVID-19 pandemic and medical debt, overall or across areas with different incomes and pandemic severity, results that are consistent with any increase being offset by decreases in elective medical procedures and new health care–related governmental policies.

Diversifying the species in forest plantations has a positive impact on the quality of woodlands. This is the result of an international study, involving a CNRS researcher, published on May 20, 2022, in the journal Science. Forest plantations mixing several different species have long been used for some reforestation operations. According to their analysis, trees in multi-species stands are taller, wider and produce more biomass. These positive effects are mainly due to functional complementarity between species. This study demonstrates the multiple benefits of considering mixed forest plantations in the development of afforestation and reforestation policies.
