A new study identifies a potential treatment window of several years for plaques in the brain considered to cause memory loss in diseases such as Alzheimer’s.
A new study offers evidence of source memory in nonhuman animals.
A new study argues that prolonged chemotherapy decreases the development of new brain cells, and disrupts ongoing brain rhythms in the part of the brain responsible for making new memories.
Researchers have found compelling evidence that older adults can eliminate forgetfulness and perform as well as younger adults on memory tests. The findings have intriguing implications for designing learning strategies for older adults.
Researchers combined genetic data with neuroimaging in order to identify genes associated with amyloid plaque deposits in Alzheimer’s disease patients. The study is believed to be the first genome-wide association study of plaque deposits using a specialized PET scan tracer that binds to amyloid.
A new study suggest that along with amyloid deposits, white matter hyperintensities may be a second necessary factor for the development of Alzheimer’s disease.
Researchers upend a long-held view about the basic functioning of a key receptor molecule involved in signaling between neurons. The study describes how a compound linked to Alzheimer’s disease impacts NMDA receptors and weakens synaptic connections between brain cells.
Researchers recently developed a system for observing real-time brain activity in a live mouse. The device could prove useful in studying new treatments for Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases.
New research has established a possible link between high-fat diets and such childhood brain-based conditions as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and memory-dependent learning disabilities.
