Galantamine Births Neurons Synopsis

Galantamine is generally considered to be an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor that helps prevent the breakdown of the important memory molecule acetylcholine. However, less well known is the fact that galantamine also promotes hippocampal neurogenesis—i.e., the creation of new neurons. A new study provides an intriguing glimpse into the mechanisms underlying how acute galantamine stimulates neurogenesis and promotes survival of cells in the mouse hippocampus. To find out how galantamine plays a role in the birthing process of new neurons, see "Galantamine Births Neurons."
