Researchers have developed a technique to yield neurons which resemble those found in the brains of old people. They believe this can help with future research for age related neurological diseases, such as Alzheimer's.
Researchers have developed a new imaging method that produces the same information as invasive brain palpation procedures.
A new study reports benzodiazepines such as Valium and Xanax significantly increase the risk for developing dementia in elderly people who have taken the medications for three months or more.
A new study investigates some of the most common misconceptions about Alzheimer's disease and how these affect diagnosis, treatment and quality of life for those suffering from dementia.
Researchers report they are developing a new computer system which uses demographic, genetic and clinical data to help predict how Alzheimer's disease will affect the patient's brain.
According to a new study, women with the APOEe4 allele, a genetic variant closely tied to Alzheimer's disease, face sharper weight loss after the age of 70 than those without the gene, whether they go on to develop dementia or not.
Researchers report brain tissue of horses that died from equine grass sickness contains a build up of amyloid beta, a protein associated with human Alzheimer's disease.
A new study reports researchers discovered that tau fibrils spread with the help on microglia in early stages of Alzheimer's disease.
Researchers develop a new technique which can allow organic molecules to assemble into complex tubular tissue like structures without the use of moulds or 3D printing.
A new study reports exercising on a treadmill can improve cognitive performance in late stage Alzheimer's disease.
A drug currently used to treat cancer appears to sharpen memory. Researchers believe the drug could help people with Alzheimer's disease and other memory disorders.
A new neuroprosthesis has been developed to bypass a damaged section of the hippocampus and provide a neighboring area with correctly translated memory. The device could help people with Alzheimer's disease or those who have problems with memory following brain injury.
