New studies on aging, steroids, addiction and spinal cord development highlight ACNP Annual Meeting

Selected studies include:

Successful Aging a Question of "Mind Over Matter": The commonly used criteria suggest that a person is aging well if they have a low level of disease and disability. However, a new study shows that self-perception about aging can be more important than the traditional success markers. (Embargoed until 9:00 a.m. EST December 12th)

Older Americans May Improve Memory by Exercising Their Brains and Bodies: Research finds that older Americans may improve their memory by making simple lifestyle changes including memory exercises, physical fitness, healthy eating and stress reduction. (Embargoed until 9:00 a.m. EST December 12th)

New Research Examines Genetics of Successful Aging: Scientists have identified genes related to reaching age 90 with preserved cognition. The study is among the first to identify genetic links to cognitive longevity. (Embargoed until 9:00 a.m. EST December 12th)

Anabolic Steroids May Be Addictive: A new study designed to test whether androgenic-anabolic steroids may be addictive found that hamsters exposed to the compounds demonstrated addictive behavior over time. This research is one of the first studies to examine the potential for anabolic steroid addiction. (Embargoed until 9:00 a.m. EST December 13th)

Common Herbal Supplement Helps to Reduce Cocaine Cravings: A new study suggests that a common over-the-counter herbal supplement, N-acetylcysteine, can reduce the cravings associated with chronic cocaine use. There is also early evidence to suggest that this chemical works similarly in the treatment of heroin addiction, and possibly alcoholism. (Embargoed until 9:00 a.m. EST December 13th)

Key Gene in Development of Connections Between Brain and Spinal Cord Identified: Researchers have identified a specific gene that is necessary for the development of connections between the brain and the spinal cord. This research could be critical for future underst
