Our genes control many aspects of who we are -- from the color of our hair to our vulnerability to certain diseases -- but how are the genes, and consequently the proteins they make themselves controlled? Researchers have discovered a new group of molecules which control some of the fundamental processes behind memory function and may hold the key to developing new therapies for treating neurodegenerative diseases.
