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 production and how the oversupply of cholesterol associated with APOE4 astrocytes may promote amyloid-beta formation in Alzheimer's patients.

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 Alzheimer's disease.

Science research articles cover psychology, depression, mental health, schizophrenia, mental disorders, happiness, stress, PTSD, autism, psychiatry and therapy.

Researchers discovered mutations of the OPTN gene resulted in increased herpesvirus 1 growth in the brains of mice, leading to the death of local neurons. This resulted in accelerated neurodegeneration. OPTN deficiency was also associated with impairments in immune response. While these findings are specific to the HSV-1 virus, researchers believe the findings may apply to up to eight herpesvirus infections.

An overgrowth in the gastrointestinal tract of the bacteria Klebsiella in preterm babies was associated with an increased presence of certain immune cells and the development of neurological damage. The findings suggest a link between microbiota and brain development.

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 experience hot flashes and depression. Women who experienced cognitive weakness had an increased risk of depression and sleep disruptions.
