Researchers believe they have found a cause of memory loss in epilepsy patients by recording single neurons in the brain.
Reduction of semantic memory could be an indicator of Alzheimer's disease 12 years before onset. Researchers examine different types of memory loss associated with dementia.
Reconstituting the amount of chondroitin 6-sulphate to perineuronal nets completely restored memory and brain plasticity in aging mice to a similar level as seen in younger animals, a new study reports. The findings could lead to new therapies to restore age-related memory loss in older humans.
Decreased blood flow and blood oxygen levels to the hippocampus may explain symptoms of memory loss associated with Alzheimer's. Researchers say increasing hippocampal blood flow could reverse or protect against symptoms of the neurodegenerative disorder.
Embarking on a six-month aerobic exercise regime may help reduce cognitive decline for older adults living with Alzheimer's disease.
Study reports success in treating cognitive decline and memory loss associated with Alzheimer's disease with the aid of personalized precision medicine.
Subtle changes in thinking and memory may appear before, or in conjunction with, the development of amyloid plaques.
Older mice given anti-inflammatory medication were better able to learn new tasks and became almost as adept at learning as mice half their age.
Study reveals there is no link between memory decline and statin use in older adults. Additionally, no association was found between statin use and cognitive decline in those with genetic risk factors for dementia.
Pernicious anemia is an autoimmune disorder associated with vitamin B12 deficiency. The condition not only affects physical health, it also has a detrimental effect on the mental health of many who suffer from the condition.
A newly identified neural network in the hippocampal formation plays a critical role in memory and object-location learning. The findings are highly relevant to learning and memory disorders, including Alzheimer's disease.
