    Choline supplementation in early life improves and low levels of choline can impair outcomes in a mouse model of Alzheimer’s disease

    Elissavet Chartampila, Karim S Elayouby ... Helen E Scharfman
    Supplementing the diet in early life with choline improved memory, neuronal morphology, and neuronal activity in mice with a genetic form of Alzheimer's disease, whereas low choline had mixed effects.
