Scientists accidentally stumble on possible way to slow brain’s ageing process

In an accidental discovery, researchers appear to have slowed the ageing process in the brains of laboratory mice, using ultrasounds or sound wave therapy. Dr Robert Hatch, from the University of Queensland, said scientists had used the technique to stop the normal reduction in the structure of brain cells in the hippocampus — an important area for learning and memory — and were now envisioning a future where people could get their brains tuned up like a car. However, he said the result had initially been a surprising one to the team of researchers. “We didn’t actually envision that this…
