Cognitive Improvement via Nasal Spray

Nasal spray to beat memory loss

Source: Daily Mail (UK)

Doctors have successfully used a nasal spray based on insulin to improve memory for the first time. Men and women who used the spray remembered twice as many test words after two months than those using a dummy spray. They also felt happier, fitter and more self-confident according to the report by Roger Dobson.

This treatment may eventually be used by people with schizophrenia to improve the cognitive deficites that are a common symptom of the disease.
