  • 科学证明:学外语能防老年痴呆!

    远比其他出现痴呆症状的老年人年轻。正是这不寻常的年纪,让阿尔茨海默对她的大脑病理产老年痴呆症在双语者身上出现更晚 2007年生了兴趣。 那时,厄恩斯特·徕兹(Ernst Leitz)与卡尔·蔡斯(Carl Zeiss)已将光学显微镜技术大大推进,而著名的神经病理学家弗朗茨·尼斯(Franz Nissl)所发明的尼氏染色法更为科学家们观察神经细胞提供了极大的便利。正是在这样的背景之下,阿尔茨海默将这名患者的大脑样品固定、染色、切片,放在了显微镜下。 出现在阿尔茨海默面前的,是令人吃惊、异常显著的病理特征:棕色斑块在大脑皮层随处可见,这些斑块表面布满短而弯的线段,仿佛是一块吸铁石上乱七八糟地吸满大头针。同时,毛线团般的纤维像野草一样充满神经细胞的内部。后来人们意识到,正是这些具有

  • 咖啡帮忙减缓老年痴呆(视频)

    咖啡毫无疑问是美国人最喜爱的饮料,每天喝上几杯咖啡早已成为了人们的生活习惯。最近美国的健康专家经过对小白鼠进行咖啡因实验后得出结论,咖啡因不仅仅只是一种饮料,它还对人们的健康有利。研究表明,咖啡因能够有效减少老年痴呆症患者的记忆力减弱。这一结论对于很多人来说是福音。因为毕竟咖啡是我们日常生活不可缺少的饮品,如果单喝咖啡就能减弱老年痴呆症的症状,那么不仅给治疗带来很大的便利,而且还能降低治疗的成本。 In this morning's Healthcare Watch, caffeine and [w]Alzheimer's disease[/w]. Two new studies have found that your morning cup of joe might help prevent memory loss due to Alzheimer's disease. Our own doctor Jennifer Ashton is here to talk about it. Good morning. Good morning, Maggie. So these are two studies that were done on mice. Please tell me they didn't give these much coffee to the little mice. They didn't. They were very [w]humane[/w]. They gave the [w]equivalent[/w] of 500 milligrams of caffeine per day to little lab mice, who have been induced to have the same type of memory changes as we see in Alzheimer's disease. And they found a very positive effect on their memory and thinking actions over a two-month period, so put another one in the column of a good effect of caffeine. So this is how much a human being would have to drink if the scenario is created in our world. Correct. And it looks like a lot. But it's important to realize that now when we go to a deli or a Starbucks, this could actually just be equivalent of 2 1/2 large or Grande cups of coffee a day. So while it's a little bit more than most people have in the morning, it's actually not such an excessive amount. How quickly did they see the effect on these mice? How long did it last? They saw it over a two-month time period and they are still following them. So it's not yet known whether they change is appeared to be permanent or not. Their thinking is that actually the caffeine worked by decreasing the [w]inflammation[/w] in the brain, cuts down on the buildup of protein we see in the brain of people with Alzheimer's disease. How encouraging is this, Jen? I think it's very encouraging, you know. So many people are affected by Alzheimer's. It's important to remember that caffeine is a drug. This is something that's obviously [w]readily[/w] [w]accessible[/w] in our environment [w]practically[/w]. It's part of most people's day-to-day and something that can have a positive effect like this is very important and very encouraging. Could you encourage people who are aging to drink more coffee in light of this? It's important to realize the study did not find really a [w]preventive[/w] effect, but more of a [w]therapeutic[/w] effect. So more studies are needed, but sounds good.   小编特别推荐:沪江最新部落版听写系统,每日VOA&BBC听写无止境! 点击申请加入最新部落版每日听写学习>>> 声明:音视频均来自互联网链接,仅供学习使用。本网站自身不存储、控制、修改被链接的内容。"沪江英语"高度重视知识产权保护。当如发现本网站发布的信息包含有侵犯其著作权的链接内容时,请联系我们,我们将依法采取措施移除相关内容或屏蔽相关链接。
