Professor Hermona Sorek, one of the world's leading researchers of gene expression in the brain, was able to find, in collaboration with her research colleagues, a molecular mechanism that occurs in the brains of Alzheimer's patients, which does not occur in men and which explains the acceleration of cognitive deterioration in Alzheimer's patients
From the brain to the adrenal glands - scientists from the Weizmann Institute of Science and the Max Planck Institute have mapped the entire "stress axis" and shown how chronic stress affects and changes these tissues at the individual cell level. The scientists discovered a new subpopulation of endocrine cells involved in regulating the response to chronic stress
