Certain animals – including dolphins, whales and sea otters – appear to be protected by -transporting-transporting proteins in their brains, according to a study by researchers at the University of California, Santa Cruz, led by Terrie Williams, professor of ecology and evolutionary biology and the team measured the amounts of these complex oxygen-carrying proteins. Called globins. Nerve-e cerebral cortex of 16 different species of mammals, the findings suggest that some species have developed the ability to take their heads out of the conditions of low oxygen, also called hypoxia protect. What was remarkable was the level of variability we found, said Williams, Some animals had three to 10 times more nerve – protective type can globins keep than others These wild species many hints about how by to protection mechanisms in the brain. Turn turn . The discovery could have important implications for understanding stroke and aging in humans, according to Williams, it is not yet clear whether the of of a particular species with high amounts of the brain globins, or whether their behavior and environment stimulate the production of globins. But in each case the amounts appear to be malleable. This is promising, she said, because if globin production in humans could be strengthened, then brain damage caused by disease or aging could be minimized. – The mammalian brain a remarkable capacity for increasing neuroprotective globins appears to have – we’re seen that in a comparative way animals . Williams said: We could use the Can we re-train, improve the human brain for our own survival. We do not know yet, but it’s certainly intriguing and worth investigating .
