Researchers are all abuzz about honeybees and how they are helping discover a cure for age-related dementia. Scientists at Arizona State University discovered that aging bees who were given the task of taking care of baby bees in the hive, actually changed their brain structure. (Wow, news to us, said every new Mom on the planet.) When nurse bees eventually leave the hive to forage for pollen, they age quickly. In just two weeks their wings are worn, they have less hair and they lose brain functionality. But when forced to go back to their old duties as nurse bees, a new protein appeared in their brains. Specifically, one called Prx6 which combats dementia and Alzheimers. This could all lead to a drug that helps maintain brain function in humans. In the meantime changing how we deal with our surroundings could help keep our brains young. It got us to thinking, maybe we should quit our day job!?
