A new machine learning algorithm is able to automatically able to distinguish between different patterns of progression in patients with a range of different dementias. The algorithm could enable to identify which treatments are most suited to individual patients.
Researchers say a quick scan of blood vessels in the neck during mid life may help to predict those at risk of dementia up to ten years before symptoms appear.
A new study reports kicks and movements of unborn babies in the womb allow the child to map their bodies and assist in the eventual exploration of their surroundings.
Researchers report human growth hormone, prepared from human tissue prior to 1985, may have been contaminated with seeds of the amyloid beta protein. In a new study, researchers injected mice with the original c-hGH batches containing amyloid beta which seeded amyloid pathology, even decades after storage. Findings support the hypothesis that the Alzheimer's causing proteins can be transmitted to from contaminated materials.
A new study reveals statins, biguanides and other drugs that help treat physical conditions may have significant benefits for the treatment of bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.
According to researchers, older adults who engage in activities perceived to be worthwhile, such as supporting grandchildren or completing a project, have better sleep, walking speeds and experience less chronic pain.
The posterior hippocampus tracks distance to a newly learned location, as well as familiar environments. By contrast, when navigating a familiar location, the retrosplenial cortex takes over responsibility for tracking distance. The findings shed light on how the brain navigates and encodes spatial information.
People with the specific genotype of the Cannabinoid receptor 1 gene may be more prone to cannabis use disorder. Researchers report those with FAAH rs324420 A continue to want more marijuana following use and are more drawn to cannabis-related imagery while under the influence of the drug.
