In a study published in May in the journal Cell, scientists exposed a group of mice to UVB rays, a short-wave ultraviolet light, for two hours--the equivalent of 30 minutes of sunlight. Researchers then evaluated the mice’s motor skills with a rotarod test, in which the mice balance on a rotating rod, followed by a memory trial in which mice had to sniff out the novel object in a familiar setting. Exposure to mock-sunlight increased levels of urocanic acid in the mice’s blood, which was converted in the brain to glutamate, a neurotransmitter released at the motor cortex, where voluntary movement originates, and hippocampus, the brain’s main storage unit for … [Read more...] about Sunlight Boosted Memory in Mice–Could It Do the Same for Humans?
