    Compound derived from curry spice is neuroprotective against stroke and traumatic brain injury
    http://insciences.org/article.php?article_id=9725
    A synthetic derivative of the curry spice turmeric, made by scientists at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, dramatically improves the behavioral and molecular deficits seen in animal models of ischemic stroke and traumatic brain injury (TBI). Two new studies suggest that the novel compound may have clinical promise for these conditions, which currently lack good therapies.
