A small scale pilot study reveals adults with mild cognitive impairment may have improved brain function and memory when they switch to a high-fat, low-carb diet.
A new study reports some former NFL players who lost consciousness due to concussion while playing have smaller hippocampal volume and score lower on memory tests.
Cognitive enhancement drugs do not help improve cognition or function in the long term for patients with mild cognitive impairment, a new study shows.
A new study, which involved a small sample of former professional athletes, found no evidence of early onset dementia.
A new study reports engaging in activities that are mentally stimulating can help to stave off the onset of mild cognitive impairment.
Investigators report on the development of imaging-based biomarkers that will have an impact on diagnosis before the Alzheimer's disease process is set in motion.
According to a new study, people with MCI have a greater risk of developing dementia if they have diabetes.
Strategy-based reasoning training can improve the cognitive performance for those with mild cognitive impairment, a new study reports.
Older adults who experience problems completing simple financial tasks, such as calculating their change, may be at increased risk of Alzheimer's disease. Problems with financial management have often been associated with later stage dementia. A new study reveals this could be one of the earliest signs of dementia and may be correlated with a build-up of amyloid plaque deposits.
A synthesized small-molecule drug blocks the TGF-beta receptor in astrocytes and traverses the blood-brain barrier in mice. When administered, the drug lowered receptor activity to that seen in younger mice and reduced inflammation. The aged mice were able to navigate mazes and learn spatial tasks as well as younger mice.
Study reveals changes in blood flow to different brain areas may be the earliest sign of Alzheimer's disease.
