    Hi, I've not heard of a working home tool yet. It would be interesting how it is working and how precise it is. I just know a group in Zurich which is working on developing such a tool. But it is quite difficult, since this tool has to detect a single amino acid and not just a whole molecule (like in diabetes).

  • @Paul I wrote an explanation in german and attached the paper. If you are interested:

  • That's a difficult question and I don't know if there is an answer yet. I am also curious for the results of the study. Would be interesting if they find some differences regarding synapses, plasticity and myelination. Furthermore, I am interested in a comparison of the biological and chronological age.

  • Some days ago, I posted a paper unfortunatley just in the german part of the board about the amyloid like structures (Adler-Abramovich et al., 2012). This topic is really interesting and could explain what is happening in the brain. However, it is very difficult to work on this.

  • I wrote her an email but she didn't answer yet. I also never heard of this method before. I doublechecked some websites but I didn't find any recent publications about it. Indeed, there were some succesfull tries in 2011 with mice but it seems that there is no further processing crurently.
