Cai’s team tested three groups of middle-aged mice. One group was given gene therapy that inhibits NF-kB, the second had gene therapy to activate NF-kB, while the third was left to age naturally. This last group lived, as expected, between 600 and 1000 days. Mice with activated NF-kB all died within 900 days, while the animals with NF-kB inhibition lived for up to 1100 days.

Honestly, I am not too surprised. The human brain, for the most part, is not very well understood. Yet, outside of disease or injury, it is our biggest ally. It does so much for us. It controls our breathing, our heartbeat, and body temperature. We don't even need to think about it, or know how it does it. It simply does.
Furthermore, in life threatening emergencies it will take over and start shutting down non essential body processes to preserve our own life. So, the fact that it contains within it an emergency code to stop a total extinction event, is amazing, but not entirely unbelievable.
