Abstracts are ordered in rough order of decreasing interest to me (so you might want to start at the bottom).

Nerve function & structure: The molecular architecture of myelinated peripheral nerves is supported by calorie restriction with aging, Rangaraju et al.:

Age-associated reduction in the expression of the major myelin proteins and widening of the nodes of Ranvier are attenuated by the dietary intervention, which is paralleled with the maintenance of a differentiated Schwann cell phenotype. The improvements in nerve architecture with diet restriction, in part, are…
