I think today's story sucks... Researchers have found they can boost the brain power of old mice by injecting them with blood from young mice. 

The team are now trying to figure out exactly what it is in the young blood that recharged the old brains.

They hope their work could lead to developing new treatments for dementia. It'll be interesting to find out if this works for people too, but what will it mean for kids!
