Older Adults Expect to Lose Brain Power, but Most Don't Ask Doctors How to Prevent Dementia

Many Americans in their 50s and early 60s are worried about declining brain health, especially if they have loved ones with memory loss and dementia, a new national poll finds. But while the majority ... read more

Could Sleep Molecules Lead to a Blood Test for Alzheimer's Disease?

A new study has found that a particular class of molecules may help with diagnosing Alzheimer's ... read more

New Molecule Maps Cerebrovascular System

Early-Stage Detection of Alzheimer's in the Blood

Using current techniques, Alzheimer's disease, the most frequent cause of dementia, can only be detected once the typical plaques have formed in the brain. At this point, therapy seems no longer ... read more

Teaching Happiness to Dementia Caregivers Reduces Their Depression, Anxiety

Caring for family members with dementia -- which is on the rise in the US -- causes significant emotional and physical stress that increases caregivers' risk of depression, anxiety and death. A ... read more

Two proteins central to the pathology of Alzheimer's disease act as prions -- misshapen proteins that spread through tissue like an infection by forcing normal proteins to adopt the same ... read more

Researchers performed the first comprehensive analysis of the genes altered in individual brain cells of patients with Alzheimer's disease, allowing them to identify the distinctive cellular ... read more

Restoring Brain Function in Mice With Symptoms of Alzheimer's Disease

A study in mice shows that selectively removing cells that are no longer dividing from the brains of mice with a form of Alzheimer's disease can reduce brain damage and inflammation, and slow ... read more

When Is 'Alzheimer's' Not Alzheimer's? Researchers Characterize a Different Form of Dementia

Alzheimer's is dementia, but not all dementias are Alzheimer's (which may explain why so many Alzheimer's drugs have failed in clinical trials). A new study provides a framework for a ... read more

Researchers Define Alzheimer's-Like Brain Disorder

A brain disorder that mimics symptoms of Alzheimer's disease has been defined with recommended diagnostic criteria and guidelines for advancing future research on the ... read more

Do 'Microglia' Hold the Key to Stop Alzheimer's Disease?

Scientists have studied how specialized brain cells called microglia respond to the accumulation of toxic proteins in the brain, a feature typical of Alzheimer's. The three major disease risk ... read more

Nanomaterials Mimicking Natural Enzymes With Superior Catalytic Activity and Selectivity

A research team doped nitrogen and boron into graphene to selectively increase peroxidase-like activity and succeeded in synthesizing a peroxidase-mimicking nanozyme with a low cost and superior ... read more

Paving the Way for Innovative Treatment of Epilepsy

Researchers have discovered that a drug commonly used to treat multiple sclerosis may, after necessary modifications, one day be used to treat patients with ... read more

Exercise Activates Memory Neural Networks in Older Adults

A new study of healthy older adults shows that just one session of exercise increased activation in the brain circuits associated with memory -- including the hippocampus -- which shrinks with age ... read more

Drugs to Prevent Stroke and Dementia Show Promise in Early Trial

Treatments that prevent recurrence of types of stroke and dementia caused by damage to small blood vessels in the brain have moved a step closer, following a small ... read more

A Video Game Aids in Research on Alzheimer's Disease

A new study based on data collected from a spatial navigation video game has shown that poor spatial orientation as an indicator can help in early diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease, even prior to ... read more

New Synthesis Strategy Speeds Identification of Simpler Versions of a Natural Product

A new chemical synthesis strategy to harvest the rich information found in natural products -- organic compounds isolated from natural sources -- has led to the identification of novel, simpler ... read more

How Fish Brain Cells React to Alzheimer's Disease

Researchers have studied the regenerative capacity of zebrafish brain in single cell resolution with the aim of developing novel strategies against ... read more

More Evidence That Blood Tests Can Detect the Risk of Alzheimer's

A new study confirms that a simple blood test can reveal whether there is accelerating nerve cell damage in the brain. The researchers analyzed neurofilament light protein (NFL) in blood samples from ... read more
