Advances Made in Alzheimer's Research

Oct. 20, 2016 — A major advance has been made in Alzheimer’s research, say researchers. They showed how a diseased vertebrate brain can naturally react to Alzheimer’s pathology by forming more neurons. Two ... read more

Oct. 14, 2016 — The coenzyme NAD+ plays a main role in aging processes. In mice and roundworm adding the substance can both extend life and postpone the onset of aging processes. New research shows that this new ... read more

Dysfunction in Neuronal Transport Mechanism Linked to Alzheimer's Disease

Oct. 12, 2016 — Researchers have confirmed that mutation-caused dysfunction in a process cells use to transport molecules within the cell plays a previously suspected but underappreciated role in promoting the ... read more

Alzheimer's Disease Could Be Treated With Gene Therapy, Suggests Animal Study

Oct. 10, 2016 — Researchers have prevented the development of Alzheimer’s disease in mice by using a virus to deliver a specific gene into the brain, outlines a new ... read more

Oct. 10, 2016 — A new tool allows researchers to interactively explore the hierarchical processes that happen in the brain when it is resting or performing tasks. Scientists also hope that the tool can shed some ... read more

Oct. 7, 2016 — Mathematical modeling of the brain scans of patients with Alzheimer's disease and others at risk for the devastating neurodegenerative disorder has identified specific patterns of brain atrophy ... read more

Aberrant Tau Proteins Put Neuronal Networks to Sleep

Oct. 7, 2016 — Researchers present new findings on the role of the protein Tau in certain brain diseases. Their report, which is based on laboratory studies, suggests that the drug “Rolofylline” could possibly ... read more

Oct. 6, 2016 — Despite their different triggers, the same molecular chain of events appears to be responsible for brain cell death from strokes, injuries and even such neurodegenerative diseases as Alzheimer’s. ... read more

Oct. 6, 2016 — The assembly of proteins to form larger macromolecular structures within cells is linked to ribosomes and thus to their synthesis through the process of translation. Ribosomes adopt the role of a ... read more

Unique Genetic Basis Found in Autism Genes That May Lead to Earlier Diagnosis

Oct. 6, 2016 — Researchers are a step closer to understanding the genetic basis of autism, which they hope will lead to earlier diagnosis of what is rapidly becoming the most prevalent developmental disorder ... read more

Study Demonstrates Role of Gut Bacteria in Neurodegenerative Diseases

Oct. 6, 2016 — Exposure to bacterial proteins called amyloid that have structural similarity to brain proteins may lead to an increase in clumping of proteins in the brain, research has revealed. Aggregates of ... read more

Women's Better Verbal Memory Skills May Mask Early Signs of Alzheimer's

Oct. 6, 2016 — Women may have better verbal memory skills than men even when their brains show the same level of problems metabolizing glucose, which occurs in people with Alzheimer’s disease, according to ... read more

Enzyme Treatment of Gene May Reverse Effects of Alzheimer's

Oct. 5, 2016 — The APOE gene is a promising target for therapeutic approaches to Alzheimer's, says a researcher, describing new ... read more

Oct. 5, 2016 — Your gut may play a pivotal role in preventing the onset of Parkinson's disease. And the reason may be its knack for ... read more

Oct. 3, 2016 — A scientific blueprint to end tobacco cravings may be on the way after researchers crystallized a protein that holds answers to how nicotine addiction occurs in the ... read more

Coronavirus and Neurological Disease: Direct Link

Oct. 3, 2016 — For the first time, researchers have found proof of a direct association between strain OC 43 of the human coronavirus (HCoV) and neurological disease in humans. Researchers suggest the ... read more

Oct. 3, 2016 — Tau PET is a new and promising imaging method for Alzheimer's disease. A case study now confirms that tau PET images correspond to a higher degree to actual changes in the brain. According to ... read more

Brain Diseases Manifest in the Retina of the Eye

Oct. 3, 2016 — Diseases of the central nervous system (CNS) may manifest as pathological changes in the retina of the eye. Research now shows that retinal changes may be detected earlier than brain changes. ... read more

Oct. 3, 2016 — A certain form of immunotherapy targeted to Alzheimer's patients may be ineffective when that patient also has Vascular Cognitive Impairment and Dementia, report scientists. While these drugs ... read more

More Than Half of Persons With Alzheimer's Disease Aged 90 Years or More Use Psychotropic Drugs

Oct. 3, 2016 — Psychotropic drug use is rather common among persons aged 90 years of more diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease compared with those who were diagnosed at younger age, concludes a study in Finland. ... read more
