Hell's key to success is: "Aim high, stay grounded. And if you are lucky and have a good idea, you might even hit the bullseye."
The researchers performed studies in the fruit fly (Drosophila) which has a single copy of the Ataxin-2 gene, in contrast to mammals, which have multiple copies
The finding potentially could explain the mechanism by which Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Huntington's and other neurodegenerative diseases spread within the brain and disrupt normal brain functions.
Researchers say they have identified a protein that acts as a powerful protectant against free radicals which cause cell damage and death, ageing and disease.
