US scientists undo memory loss in brain-damaged mice

Scientists for the first time have completely reversed memory loss resulting from traumatic brain injuries (TBI) in mice, a team of researchers announced Monday.

Researchers hope the breakthrough will lead to new therapies for humans suffering from head trauma.

An experimental new drug, ISRIB, restored the ability to learn and remember in brain-damaged mice. More strikingly, the drug appeared to work even when the injuries were a month old.
