Axon myelination is significantly disrupted in patients with Alzheimer's disease. Researchers also found brain cells of men and women vary significantly in how their genes respond to the neurodegenerative disease.
Depleting BACE1 completely reverses the formation of amyloid plaques and improves cognitive function in mouse models of Alzheimer's disease, researchers report.
A new study that analyzed the brains of 107 older people sheds light on the neurobiology of both healthy and diseases aging.
According to researchers, the compound P7C3 may help to protect against neuron death and memory problems associated with Alzheimer's disease without altering the buildup of amyloid plaques or neurofibrillary tangles in rat brains.
Researchers have devised a new blood test that can detect if amyloid had begun to accumulate in the brain. The test help physicians diagnose Alzheimer's disease in a cheaper, less invasive way than currently available. The researchers will present their findings at the Alzheimer's Association International Conference in London.
A new study links sleep problems with increased biomarkers for Alzheimer's disease. Researchers discovered those who report low sleep quality, daytime sleepiness and other sleep problems had elevated levels of Alzheimer's related biomarkers in their spinal fluid than those who reported no sleep problems. However, no abnormalities were found in the spinal fluid of people with obstructive sleep apnea.
Extra virgin olive oil can reduce neuroinflammation and activates autophagy, helping to protect memories and stave off dementia, a new study reports.
Study reports elevated amyloid plaque are not just a risk factor for Alzheimer's, but part of the disease and the earliest precursor before symptoms appear.
A compound used to trace amyloid plaque build up in people with Alzheimer's is not only able to extend lifespan of round worms, it also can increase quality of life, a new study reports.
Researchers have discovered an early immune response in people with a genetic predisposition to Alzheimer's disease.
