Weill Cornell Medicine researchers may have answered why women are more likely to develop Alzheimer's disease than men. In a new PLOS ONE study, researchers reveal menopause can cause metabolic changes in the brain that appear to increase the risk of Alzheimer's disease.
Researchers have identified biomarkers that can help predict which patients with Parkinson's disease will suffer from significant cognitive deficits within three years of diagnosis.
A breakdown in regulatory mechanisms causes iron to build up in the brain during aging, increasing oxidative stress and increasing the risk of age-related cognitive decline, a new study reports.
A new deep learning model can accurately predict if those at risk for Alzheimer's disease will experience significant cognitive decline up to two years into the future.
