Researchers have discovered a potential drug which can force BACE into different parts of a cell, reducing its ability to produce amyloid beta.
Researchers transform iPSCs into neurons to test the efficacy of drugs to treat Alzheimer’s disease.
Researchers discover a way to traverse the blood-brain barrier and retinal-blood barrier to deliver a molecule which degrades the main component of Alzheimer’s plaques.
New research shows the hypothalamus can directly control reproductive functions in rhesus monkeys. The researchers believe it is likely to perform the same actions in human women.
A diet which is low in vitamin D could cause damage to the brain, a new study reports.
Researchers discover the expression of certain clock genes plays a critical role in delaying the emergence of age-related signs in the brain.
Astrocytes actively refine neural circuits by selectively eliminating synapses, a new study reports.
A new neuroimaging technique allows neurosurgeons to see neural connections prior to surgery, thus preserving and protecting the brain’s critical functions when operating.
A new study reports even low levels of APOE4 can increase beta-amyloid plaques in the brain and neuronal damage in mouse models of Alzheimer’s disease. However, introducing APOE2 can reduce amyloid deposits and other associated damage.
According to a comprehensive systematic review, available evidence does not support an association between statins and cognitive decline.
