Researchers have identified a new toxic entity associated with genetically inherited forms of frontotemporal dementia and motor neuron disease.
Playing video games causes increases in brain regions responsible for memory formation and strategic planning, researchers have discovered. The findings could prove relevant in developing new therapeutic interventions for psychiatric illnesses.
Incorrect levels of GSK-3ß, a protein linked to Alzheimer’s disease, can lead to neural blockages.
Researchers have identified 11 new genes which offer important new insights into the disease pathways associated with Alzheimer’s disease.
Researchers track single neurons in mice brains over time using advanced neuroimaging techniques. The new technique allowed them to establish the processes at play during memory formation and recall.
Researchers have discovered six proteins in spinal fluid which could be used as biomarkers for Alzheimer’s disease.
A new study links high blood sugar levels to cognitive decline and memory problems, even in those without diabetes.
Carries of the TREM2 genetic mutation associated with Alzheimer’s disease could develop the disease up to three years earlier than expected, a new study finds.
Researchers find definitive brain alterations in veterans with GWI, caused as the result of exposure to neurotoxic chemicals during the first Gulf War. The study confirms working memory is affected in those with GWI.
