Researchers discover a way to traverse the blood-brain barrier and retinal-blood barrier to deliver a molecule which degrades the main component of Alzheimer's plaques.
A diet which is low in vitamin D could cause damage to the brain, a new study reports.
Researchers discover the expression of certain clock genes plays a critical role in delaying the emergence of age-related signs in the brain.
Astrocytes actively refine neural circuits by selectively eliminating synapses, a new study reports.
A new study reports even low levels of APOE4 can increase beta-amyloid plaques in the brain and neuronal damage in mouse models of Alzheimer's disease. However, introducing APOE2 can reduce amyloid deposits and other associated damage.
According to a comprehensive systematic review, available evidence does not support an association between statins and cognitive decline.
Researchers use a novel sequencing method to identify a group of genes used by microglia to sense pathogenic organisms, toxins and damaged neurons.
Researchers use a novel genomic approach to better understand genetic mutations associated with familial Alzheimer's disease.
According to a new study, middle aged people with high pulse pressure are more likely to have biomarkers for Alzheimer's disease in their spinal fluid than those with lower pulse pressure.
Analyzing scores obtained from cognitive tests, researchers believe they have developed a model which could detect early signs of dementia.
