Study reveals how somatostatin and copper affect amyloid beta in Alzheimer’s disease pathology.
Varicella zoster virus (VZV), the virus that causes chickenpox and shingles, may activate the herpes simplex virus and trigger the onset of Alzheimer's disease, a new mouse study found.
Smell loss in older individuals not only can predict cognitive decline, but it can also foretell structural changes in brain structures linked to Alzheimer's disease, a new study reports.
Consuming a diet rich in ultra-processed foods like chips, cookies, deep-fried foods, and salty snacks were associated with a higher risk of developing dementia.
The study reveals that performing household chores, exercising, and social interactions significantly reduce the risk of dementia.
In cognitively healthy people with a genetic risk for Alzheimer's, retinal changes have been associated with alterations in the entorhinal cortex, hippocampus, and lingual gyrus. Researchers say retinal changes can be used to track changes in brain structures associated with Alzheimer's in those with genetic risk factors.
A person's ability to self-reflect is associated with cognition and glucose metabolism later in life, a new study finds. Those who engage in more self-reflection had improved cognition, better overall brain health, and increased glucose metabolism later in life.
A newly developed immuno-infrared sensor allowed researchers to discover biomarkers for Alzheimer's disease in blood samples 17 years before clinical symptoms appeared. The sensory is able to detect the misfolding of amyloid beta.
A new study reveals a genetic link between Alzheimer's disease and several gut-related disorders. Researchers report Alzheimer's patients and those with intestinal disorders have specific genes in common. The findings add to the evidence the gut-brain axis may play a role in the development of neurodegenerative disorders.
Whole blood exchange effectively decreases the formation of amyloid beta in the brains of mouse models of Alzheimer's disease.
Consuming seven or more units of alcohol per week is associated with increased iron levels in the brain. Higher levels of iron in the brain is linked to increased risk of neurodegenerative disorders and alcohol-related cognitive decline.
Lifestyle may be more important than age in determining a person's cognitive function and future dementia risks, a new study reports.
