Study reveals changes in blood flow to different brain areas may be the earliest sign of Alzheimer's disease.
According to a new study, sleeping on your side helps the clear the brain of some neurotoxins, like amyloid beta, and could potentially reduce risk for developing some neurodegenerative disorders.
Computational model provides caregivers and doctors a better understanding of the potential outcomes for a young child who suffers from a head injury as a result of abuse.
Researchers have discovered a new biomarker that can help diagnose Huntington's disease. They note the findings could result in the development of treatments to postpone neuron death in those who carry the Huntington's gene mutation, but who do not currently show symptoms of the disease.
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.
According to researchers, people who suffer from migraines have higher sodium concentrations in their cerebrospinal fluid.
According to researchers, a small alcoholic drink each day may be beneficial for brain health. Using mice, researchers found low levels of alcohol consumption is associated with less brain inflammation and a more effective glymphatic system. This allows CSF to flow more efficiently through the brain and remove waste that can lead to neurodegenerative diseases.
A new study reports changes in the spinal fluid during middle age may help doctors identify people at risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease later in life.
Researchers have developed a new method for detecting a molecule linked to Parkinson's disease from a small sample of spinal fluid.
A new study reveals a possible cause of visual impairment in astronauts.
