Children’s thinking is more labile and
variety. It is children who learn poems and study
foreign languages, learning to play musical instruments,
comprehend sports tops. But as a person gets older, so
it’s harder to strain your mind so easily. It will take more than one year and
A lot of strength to master, for example, English.
Now scientists were able to find the newest technique that allows
the adult brain reorganize their work on
children’s harmony and easier to perceive auditory information. Merit this
belongs to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (“St.
Jude Children’s Research Hospital “, USA, Memphis, Tennessee).
Thanks to the experimental work of the hospital, adults will be able to
regain the ability of fast and high-quality learning.
Doctors have researched laboratory rodents by reversing
attention to the production of adenosine in their brain. The older
the mammal, the higher the level of adenosine in the nervous tissue.
Presumably this is the main reason for the decline.
learning abilities in adults. Scientists called forced
adenosine deficiency in rodents in their thalamus (auditory centers).
The thalamus was not chosen by chance. He is the “collector” of all
sensations in the body, and also translates them into overlying departments
brain, that is, in the cortex. Auditory nuclei and areas of the cortex responsible
for sound perception, interconnected via glutamate. it
a specialized neurotransmitter created by nature for
facilitate the passage of nerve impulses. Glutamate concentration
reduced by adenosine.
Based on scientific evidence, the researchers advanced their theory.
When inhibition of the synthesis of adenosine, a decrease in the concentration of glutamate
will not happen. Consequently, the nerve impulse from the thalamus to
cerebral cortex will be much better. Adult
the person will be trained as much as the child.
Americans have inhibited the production of adenosine, mainly with
using the “FR194921” compound – A1-adenosine blocker
receptor. In the experiment, the mouse listened to musical tones.
It turned out that adult laboratory mice responded vividly
the sound information is the same as their offspring. In addition, they
were able to distinguish between similar tones, which is not typical for
mature rodents. A similar effect lasted for
Stanislav Zakharchenko, an employee of the Department
Children’s Research Hospital St. Judah, commented
regarding the work done: “After a violation of the synthesis
adenosine in the auditory thalamic nuclei we were able to push
timeframes for effective adult education
In science, this happened for the first time. The fruits of our work give
promising hopes for doing such work among adults
population. Then, perhaps, the process of learning and improvement
already acquired skills will become much easier. Next stage –
development of drugs inhibitors of adenosine “.
Researchers gave us grounds for reflection and fantasy. After all
It may well be that tomorrow the very “future” will come and we
we can learn several foreign languages in one day or
learn to play guitar. Just take a few pills and
spend some personal time.
All large-scale, clinically reliable human trials.
the form is just ahead. We need to find companies that want to
to finance this undertaking. And, unfortunately, from such
innovative developments only 10% of the volume comes to full
реализации среди population. It remains to wait for new results.
