USDA scientists report in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry that a Pterostilbene in berries and grapes can reverse the negative effects of aging on the human brain, while also improving working memory. The compound apparently produces these beneficial effects through action as an antioxidant in the hippocampus region of the brain.

In work sponsored by The Organic Center at Washington State University, organic berries were found to contain higher levels of pterostilbenes, compared to conventional fruits.
