Researchers have pinpointed how brain activity changes in mouse models of Parkinson's disease, providing clues as to what may drive symptoms of the disease in humans.
Even during early stages of the disease, gut bacteria in those with Parkinson's differs significantly from those without the disease, a new study reports.
Researchers have implicated an enzyme that appears to make both Tau and alpha synculein more toxic in Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. Inhibiting this enzyme has already proved helpful in treating animal models of Alzheimer's disease. The researchers report they are moving on to testing drugs that inhibit AEP in animal models of Parkinson's disease.
A new study reports peptides related to Alzheimer's disease wiggle at dangerously fast speeds prior to forming amyloid plaques.

Researchers report Alzheimer's disease may actually be a collection of different disease that should be treated independently with different approaches.
Findings may help researchers better understand how diseases can spread through the brain.
Findings may explain how neurodegenerative diseases spread throughout the brain and disrupt normal functions. Additionally, treatment for one disease could possibly work for the other two also.
Scientists discovered the reaction which starts the formation of amyloid fibers. Amyloid fibers are problematic in many diseases and disorders...
A new study describes a novel route for therapeutic development and intervention testing for Parkinson's disease.
A new study reports the anti-epilepsy drug ethosuximide appears to have protective effects in certain models of neurodegenerative diseases.
A new study reports an experimental anti inflammatory drug can protect neurons and reduce motor deficits in rat models of Parkinson's disease.
A new study reveals minocycline, a popular antibiotic, can help extend lifespan and improve protein balance in aging worms. Researchers say the protective mechanism of the medication could be exploited to help prevent neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's or Parkinson's in humans.
