Increased Neuronal Activity Shortens Lifespan in Animals

October 16, 2019

Written by Ruth Williams

A study of nematode worms, mice, and humans indicates that, across the animal kingdom, with aging comes more neural activity and when this natural increase is limited, individuals may live longer. The research, published in Nature today (October 16) highlights a conserved transcription factor called REST that may be central to regulating this age-related neuronal activity. Read more.
