According to researchers, drinking coffee could reduce your risk of developing Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. The study reports dark roasted coffee appears to have better neuroprotective qualities than light roasts.
Researchers report those who have had appendectomies have a reduced risk of developing Parkinson's disease. A new study reveals the appendix acts as a reservoir for proteins associated with the neurodegenerative disease.
A new study questions previous assumption about how Parkinson's disease develops and progresses.
In Parkinson's disease, alpha synuclein clumps move to and damage mitochondrial proteins, making them less efficient and causing the mitochondrial to burst, leaking out chemicals that tell the cells to die, researchers say.
Increasing fish consumption could help to lower the risk of developing Parkinson's and other neurodegenerative diseases, researchers report. The study reveals the protein parvalbumin can help to prevent the formation of alpha synuclein.
Researchers have developed a new blood test capable of detecting biomarkers of Alzheimer's disease long before the first symptoms appear.
Researchers report analyzing a person's tears may help doctors diagnose Parkinson's disease. The study reveals those with Parkinson's had increased levels of oligomeric alpha synuclein in their tears compared to those without the neurodegenerative disease.
A new Nature Communications study reveals increased calcium levels in brain cells may play a significant role in the development of Parkinson's disease.
A new PNAS study reveals an FDA approved drug that targets toxic protein interactions could be used as a novel treatment for Parkinson's disease.
Max Planck researchers have made a groundbreaking discovery that helps explain why people with Parkinson's often report an impaired sense of smell. They discovered the total volume of glomeruli in the olfactory bulb of Parkinson's patients is only half of that found in people without the disease.
