A Peptide to Protect Brain Function   Tel Aviv University researcher develops a protein

to protect and restore nerve cell communications

 Tel Aviv — A structure called “the microtubule network” is a crucial part of our nervous system. It acts as a transportation system within nerve cells, carrying essential proteins and enabling cell-to-cell communications. But in neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s, ALS, and Parkinson's, this network breaks down, hindering motor abilities and cognitive function.
