Ageing: Delayed damage
Proc. Natl Acad. Sci. USA doi: 10.1073/pnas.1002220107 (2010)
Exercise and drastic dieting known as caloric restriction are known to have anti-ageing effects in the brain. Work in mice now suggests that the lifestyle changes preserve communication between nerves and muscles.
Jeff Lichtman and Joshua Sanes of Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and their colleagues studied the connections between nerves and muscles in mice. These junctions deformed and deteriorated as mice aged, but cutting calories by 40% for life after the mice reached 16 weeks of age lessened the damage. Exercise also reduced age-related decline, and a month of frequent running reversed some of the effects of ageing in elderly mice. However, the benefits of exercise seemed to be limited to nerve junctions in muscles that were directly exerted.
