Researchers have identified a mechanism that occurs within the CA3 region of the hippocampus that appears to be responsible for a common type of age-related memory loss.
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.
