Study reports tau accumulation in the temporal lobe was 75% higher in women than men.
Amyloid-beta accumulates in nerve cells and spreads, from cell to cell, via nerve fibers. This process occurs prior to the formation of amyloid plaques in the brain.
Researchers report they have discovered where the earliest signs of Alzheimer's may occur in the brain. Initial accumulation of Alzheimer's associated amyloid beta was discovered in an important functional network, the default mode network.
Researchers have identified four distinct subtypes of Alzheimer's disease. The findings could lead to more individualized treatments for those with the neurodegenerative disorder.
An experiment aimed to investigate how the brain interprets artificial touch sensation from a finger neuroprosthesis, has revealed new information for developing way to measure brain health.
Neurofilament light protein in plasma may be a noninvasive biomarker for neurodegeneration associated with Alzheimer's disease.
A new blood test to detect biomarkers for Alzheimer's disease is set to undergo trials in the Fall. The test will be able to identify traces of amyloid beta in blood samples with a high degree of accuracy.
Researchers examine the neuroscience behind why we make certain decisions when faced with multiple choices.
