Treadmill Training for Old Mice Upregulates Autophagy and Improves Heart Function

It is well demonstrated that structured exercise programs improve function and reduce mortality in old humans, in part because the majority of people do not undertake anywhere near enough exercise. For mice, more activity takes place into later life, but how much is quite dependent on the environment in which […]
