HARTFORD, Conn. — Researching a new drug compound on mice, Yale School of Medicine researchers were able to reverse the effects of Alzheimer’s on learning and memory, the school announced Tuesday.

In this latest study, scientists are showing for the first time that inhibiting the negative effects of a specific protein can reverse memory and learning deficits associated with Alzheimer’s in mice.
