Journal Club December Video Available


Happy Holidays! Journal Club. Dr. Medvedik wanted to take a look at something a bit different this month. We are taking a look at a fascinating study where researchers used light to treat Alzheimer’s plaque formation in mice. This is considerably different to more traditional approaches to treat this disease so we thought we would take a look at the study and discuss the findings.

Unfortunately, we had a slight technical problem with our connection during the show so there is some editing about halfway through but hopefully, this does not detract from your enjoyment.

Iaccarino, H. F., Singer, A. C., Martorell, A. J., Rudenko, A., Gao, F., Gillingham, T. Z., … & Adaikkan, C. (2016). Gamma frequency entrainment attenuates amyloid load and modifies microglia. Nature, 540(7632), 230-235.

Unfortunately, the paper is behind an expensive paywall on nature, so if like us you agree that science, and in particular knowledge pertaining to health, should not be behind paywalls grab the paper for free at Sci-hub.
