Researchers focus on gray matter volume on three areas of the brain. Findings suggest cardiovascular risk factors such as obesity and diabetes could be early indicators for Alzheimer's disease.
Researchers report a cognitive test can help detect Alzheimer's in older people who express no symptoms of the disease.
Researchers have discovered a new molecular mechanism that directly contributes to synapse loss in people with Alzheimer's disease.
Researchers have identified key molecular pathways which lead to late-onset Alzheimer's disease. The study presents a new approach to Alzheimer's research and highlights several potential drug targets.
Combining non-invasive brain stimulation with a person's favorite music from the past may help to activate old memories and improve mood for older patients with MCI, a new study reports.
According to researchers, older adults who move more than average may be better protected from dementia symptoms. The study reports physical activity helps maintain cognitive skills when there are signs of Alzheimer's pathology in the brain.
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.
The brain’s key “breeder” cells secrete substances that boost the numbers and strength of critical brain-based immune cells believed to play a vital role in brain health. This finding adds a new dimension to our understanding of how resident stem cells and stem cell transplants may improve brain function.
Cinnamaldehyde and epicatechin, two compounds found in cinnamon, are showing promise in the fight against Alzheimer's disease.
