DBS Plus, a new version of deep brain stimulation, shows promise in helping to relieve Parkinson's symptoms.
A new study reports the Ketogenic diet can help to improve cognition. The study reports the Ketogenic diet can help improve balance in the gut microbiome, lower blood glucose levels and increase the processes that help to clear amyloid beta from the brain.
MW-151, a new drug that blocks 'bad' inflammation in the brain is about to be tested in a new human trial. Researchers believe the new drug could help stave off dementia.
LATE, a form of dementia that appears in the oldest-old is often mistaken for Alzheimer's disease, but the brain pathology is very different. The protein TDP-43 appears to play a significant role in the development of LATE. The neurodegenerative disease may progress more gradually than Alzheimer's, but when combined with Alzheimer's disease (a common combination), appears to cause a more rapid decline than either would alone.
Microbiota-derived short-chain fatty acids (SCFA) modulate stroke recovery. The effect was mediated by circulating lymphocytes on microglia activation. The study reports SCFAs could be a potential therapeutic to improve post-stroke recovery.
Gentamicin and G418, two aminoglycoside antibiotics, were effective at correcting genetic mutations associated with a specific form of frontotemporal dementia. The findings are promising for the treatment of frontotemporal dementia.
MW189, a small molecule drug candidate, blocks abnormal inflammation in the brain which contributes to injury and disease induced neurological impairments.
Specific patterns of frontal brainwaves during everyday memory tasks help researchers to predict a patient's risk for developing mild cognitive impairment within five years.
Both the ApoE genotype and the sex of the mouse impacted the manner in which the animals with spinal cord injury responded to hypoxia treatment. Females with the ApoE e4 gene had a negative response to intermittent hypoxia.
DP-ASL, a new neuroimaging technique may help researchers identify early blood-brain barrier dysfunction associated with SVD.
Glucosamine is a major component of brain glycogen, a new study reports.
