A collaboration of researchers from the Norwegian University of Life Sciences and Arizona State University has been claiming that bees have the ability to reverse the aging process of the brain, as per a recent report.
A survey conducted by the team has found that older bees, if given the tasks actually performed by younger bees, tend to redevelop their power to learn new things.
Recently published in the journal Experimental Gerontology, the new study has shown that bees are also same as humans. While baby bees remain mentally active when young bees protect the larvae in the nests, going out in search of food grows them older too early.
It has been told that they tend to lose their hair as well as weaken their brain functions. But, if, as per the team, the elderly bees are made to be involved in some work in the nest, they realize improvements in their brain’s molecular structure.
The findings may be helpful for dementia patients, say the researchers, since the disease also makes them forget things. The reason is that they have the same proteins that the bees have. “Maybe social intervention – changing how you deal with your surroundings – is something we can do today to help our brains stay younger”, said lead author Gro Amdam, PhD.
