Carnosic acid, a compound found in the herb rosemary, can block the interaction with the COVID-19 SARS_CoV_2 spike protein and ACE2, the protein receptor the virus uses to gain access into cells. The compound appears to have anti-inflammatory effects and has previously been associated with a reduction in Alzheimer's symptoms.
Parkinson's patients who increase the number of flavonoid-rich foods they consume as part of their diet have a lower mortality risk than those who don't.
New findings reveal exercise increases levels of endocannabinoids in the body. The findings may explain some of the beneficial effects of exercise on the brain and body.
The COVID causing SARS-CoV-2 protein interacts with alpha-synuclein, speeding up the formation of amyloid plaques, a new study reports.
Researchers have refined a molecule that shows promise for the prevention of Parkinson's disease.
Chains of fatty acids in the lysosome that are one-half nanometer longer than normal-length chains were associated with a degenerative form of Gaucher disease, a genetic condition related to Parkinson's disease.
A new study sheds light on the genetic causes of a range of neurodegenerative disorders, including ALS, Parkinson's disease, and Huntington's disease, and determines factors that impact the age of onset as well as disease severity.
Increased ceramide levels in the brain may be a unique feature of all types of Lewy body dementias, including LBD associated with Parkinson's disease.
Musical therapy can help to improve fine motor skills in patients with Parkinson's disease.
A majority of Parkinson's patients report a diminished sense of smell, which starts to occur a number of years before the onset of other symptoms. Researchers are exploring whether scent-processing neurons which connect the nose to the brain may play a role in the development of Parkinson's disease.
