    An animal study carried out by neuroscientists at New York University’s Langone Medical Center revealed that calorie restricting diet could halt the normal activity of over 900 different genes related to aging and memory formation in the brain.

    The results were achieved after experiments with female mice, which like people are more prone to dementia than males.
