A newly developed two-minute EEG test effectively picks up on early memory impairments associated with Alzheimer’s disease.
Greater radiodensity of perivascular adipose tissue in women during midlife was associated with decreased working memory performance later in life.
Researchers identified specific receptors for acetylcholine that reroute information flow through memory circuits in the hippocampus. The findings could have implications for the development of drugs to help enhance or protect memory from diseases asso…
A newly identified gene therapy pathway has the potential to protect us against dementia and cancer, researchers report.
Cocoa consumption could reduce inflammation and epigenetic aging, ultimately reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease and other diseases associated with aging.
Stem cell study reveals astrocytes carrying the Alzheimer’s associated APOE4 gene release more cholesterol than those carrying the APOE3 gene. Findings shed light on how different versions of the APOE gene in astrocytes influence amyloid-beta productio…
Cholesterol produced by astrocytes in the brain is required for the production of amyloid-beta. The findings shed light on how and why amyloid-beta forms, and may explain why genes associated with cholesterol have been implicated as risk factors for Al…
Amyloid-beta proteins created in the liver are carried in the blood by lipoproteins to the brain. This results in neurodegeneration, brain atrophy, and inflammation, which are common features of Alzheimer’s disease.
Drugs that stabilize amyloid fibril “frustration” block further aggregation and could provide a new method to prevent the progression of Alzheimer’s.
Study reveals the molecular mechanisms implicated in the regulation of toxic proteins in neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
Researchers identified 33 metabolic compounds in blood samples that differed between those with dementia and cognitively healthy older adults. 7 of the metabolites were elevated in dementia patients, while 26 were at lower levels compared to samples of…
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy improved cerebral blood flow by up to 23%, alleviating vascular dysfunction and amyloid burden in elderly patients. The treatment also improved memory by 16.5%.
People with ADHD had a 34% higher risk of developing dementia than those without the disorder. The risk of being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, the most common type of dementia, was 55% higher for those with ADHD.
Exposure to high levels of road and rail traffic noise over long periods of time is associated with a higher risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
A new study on aging reveals a surprising discovery about the connection between protein shape and mitochondrial health.
Small scale study reveals Omega 3 supplements stabilized memory function in adults with Alzheimer’s disease. Those who did not take omega-3 supplements showed a deterioration in memory function.
A new AI algorithm can predict the onset of Alzheimer’s disease with an accuracy of over 99% by analyzing fMRI brain scans.
Researchers have identified four cognitive profiles associated with menopause. Findings reveal women who experience stronger verbal learning and memory, in addition to better attention and executive function during menopause, are less likely to experie…
A newly developed brain model from cultivated stem cells allowed researchers to analyze molecular pathways of neurons in a dish. Researchers identified specific forms of amyloid beta and tau associated with cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s. They also …
Working until the age of 67 slows cognitive decline and appears to be neuroprotective against cognitive impairments and dementias.
