Astronauts venturing outside low-Earth orbit risk exposure to charged particle radiation that can cause neurological deficits via oxidative stress, synaptic changes, altered neurogenesis and neuroinflammation. Because these responses are similar to those observed in age-related neurodegenerative diseases, we hypothesized that individuals with a propensity… CONTINUE READING
