Microglia may play a significant role in disrupting neurogenesis in those with Alzheimer's disease. When mice were given drugs which caused microglial cells to die, neurogenesis returned to normal.
Researchers have developed a new rat model of Alzheimer's disease that can be used to study the accumulation of amyloid plaques.
Study offers insight into the link between the immune system and the development of Alzheimer's disease.
A new study confirms a mutation caused dysfunction associated with Alzheimer's and proposes a new therapeutic target.
Math models usually applied to physics studies are proving useful in studying the spatial distribution of astocytes in the brain, and are helping to develop new strategies for tackling Alzheimer's disease.
The chemical EPPS appears to effectively restore memory and remove the build up of amyloid in the brains of mice genetically altered to have features of Alzheimer's disease.
Researchers use a novel genomic approach to better understand genetic mutations associated with familial Alzheimer's disease.
