Delivery of α-klotho as a Basis for Neuroprotective Treatments

Klotho is one of the few well-established longevity-associated genes that works in both directions in animal models: less klotho shortens life span, while more klotho extends life. Klotho also improves cognitive function. The mechanisms by which klotho produces these outcomes remain poorly understood: there is the usual grab-bag of identified […]

How neurons get past “no”

Inhibitory neurons target the weakest-responding neurons in the brain to facilitate transmission of signals. When looking at a complex landscape, the eye needs to focus in on important details without losing the big picture—a charging lion in a jungle, for example. Now, a new study by Salk scientists shows how […]

How plants quickly adapt to shifting environmental conditions

Salk scientists find that canopy shade from competing plants triggers cellular changes in as little as five minutes. Scientists and gardeners have long known that plants grow taller and flower sooner when they are shaded by close-growing neighbors. Now, for the first time, researchers at the Salk Institute have shown […]
