34. Another neurological disorder call Huntington's chorea may also respond to resveratrol according to some laboratory studies.
35. Cells in the memory center of the brain, called the hippocampus, are sensitive to the detrimental effects of alcohol. However, wine polyphenols are protective, canceling out the bad effects. All the more reason to choose wine if you drink.
