    Lowering Estrogen Prevents Memory Decline In Menopausal Females

    As many of my readers know, the WHI studies were highly detrimental to the profits of the estrogen industry. Every since the results of those studies came out, the estrogen industry has been trying to undermine the findings and re-introduce estrogen HRT for women with the claims that estrogen is...

    Wasps Are Capable Of Logic, Recognizing Faces, And Socializing Based On Memories

    Every time I look at the title for this post I can’t help but think – so, how are wasps different from us humans? I think the answer is – not much, if at all. And this is pretty much what the study below argues, adding yet another piece to an already sizeable mountain of evidence showing that...

    The (in)famous Condition “chemo Brain” May Be Simply A State Of Low DHEA

    The condition known as “chemobrain” is notorious among cancer survivors and many other patients undergoing toxic interventions with chemotherapy and may affect up to 85% of cancer patients. It amounts to severe cognitive dysfunction, memory problems, and even personality changes that result in...

    The Brain Is Not A Computer - Does Not Process/store Information, Memories, Knowledge

    A really great article that not only makes a major argument against the success of AI as implemented in digital computers, but also calls into question the mainstream approach to neuroscience. Even neuroscience currently views the brain as little more than "wetware" - a biological CPU...

    Cells Have Memory, And Memories Of Past Conditions Affect Future Response

    This study looks at a concept that Peat has written a lot about and which has been largely ignored by mainstream medicine (in favor of genetic explanations) - epigenetic cell memory. The study only looked at muscle cells but there is no reason to believe the same mechanism is not present in...

    Estrogen Impairs Memory In Women

    There has been some evidence from rodent studies that estrogen and BDNF are antagonistic to each other as animals exposed to estrogen cannot remember very well. BDNF is akin to an anabolic steroid for the brain, and estrogen powerfully impairs its effects, especially in cases of traumatic brain...

    Calcium Channel Blockade By Magnesium Chloride On Memory. Dementia

    I don't fully understand this one myself, it looks interesting though and have seen calcium channel blockers mentioned before on here. The study concludes that this should be considered when designing treatment for dementia and other memoryproblems. Sex- and dose-dependent effects of post-trial...

    Mushroom Intake Preventing Weight Gain, Improving Balance And Working Memory

    Daily supplementation with mushroom (Agaricus bisporus) improves balance and working memory in aged rats. - PubMed - NCBI Rats on the 2% or 5% mushroom-supplemented diet consumed more food, without gaining weight, than rats in the other diet groups. Rats in the 0.5% and 1% group stayed on a...

    Estrogen Activates Habitual Memory, Progesterone Spatial Memory

    Estrogen seems to have very similar effects to serotonin on memory and behavior (as I posted about serotonin earlier this year). This study was human, so the results are even more relevant. How women navigate depends on their menstrual cycles "...We found that during the ovulatory phase when...

    Pregnenolone Activates The Glycine Receptor

    This mechanism of pregnenolone is one of the proposed methods through which it enhances neurogenesis, memory, mood and even motor function. Low doses pregnenolon improve sleep quality and are even mildly sedating, which may also be due to the activation of the glycine receptor. Subunit-specific...

    Methylene Blue Improves Short-term Memory In Humans

    I suppose the results of this study are to be expected but I wanted to post it anyways since it was one of the few human studies using methylene blue. The doses used was pretty high (4mg/kg for human) but for some reason the authors claim that this is actually a pretty low dose. Be that as it...

    Stress Increases Estrogen In Females And Impairs Cognitive Function

    I already posted several studies showing that stress elevates estrogen in males. So much for estrogen being a beneficial female hormone. Acute stress persistently enhances estrogen levels in the female rat. - PubMed - NCBI "...Here we tested whether exposure to either tailshock or swim stress...

    Thiamine, Thyroid And Perfect Recall

    Has anyone ever tried the combination of B1 and Thyroid that Peat claims let's you have access to everything you've ever know? I'd be very interested to hear reports!

    Dietary Vitamin K Intake Is Associated With Cognition And Behaviour Among Geriatric Patients: The Cl

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26274973 Abstract Our objective was to determine whether dietary vitamin K intake was associated with cognition and behavior among older adults. 192 consecutive participants ≥65 years, recruited in the cross-sectional CLIP (Cognition and LIPophilic vitamins)...

    Serotonin Is Involved In The Formation Of Traumatic Memories

    The study makes several points. First, serotonin is involved in the formation of traumatic memories when under shock / stress. Second, memories do not appear to be stored in the synapses, which implies that in theory lost memories (like in patients with Alzheimers or concussions) can be restored...

    Tofu / Soy Is Toxic To The Brain

    Ray wrote in one of his articles that tofu is associated with dementia. It is likely that it is the tofu's (and all soy products for that matter) highly estrogenic effects that are to blame. There was a study back in 2009 that confirmed Ray's views and this latest (and larger) study adds even...
