Researchers have identified a signaling pathway that promotes sensory neuron grown and prevents peripheral neuropathy when blocked.
New artificial intelligence technology will analyze clinical data, brain images, and genetic information from Alzheimer's patients to look for new biomarkers associated with the neurodegenerative disease.
Secondary infections and novel inflammatory events, even ones that occur external to the brain, amplify the brain's immune response and detrimentally impact cognition in mouse models of Alzheimer's disease.
A new study reveals how the physical force exerted by the solid components of brain tumors impacts surrounding tissue, resulting in apoptosis and neurological dysfunction. Researchers reports the drug lithium, commonly prescribed for bipolar disorder, can help reverse some of the damage caused by the solid stress of the tumor.
A new study reports researchers discovered that tau fibrils spread with the help on microglia in early stages of Alzheimer's disease.
Study reveals a significant association between certain viral illnesses, including viral encephalitis and pneumonia-causing flu with an increased risk of developing a neurodegenerative disorder later in life. Researchers say existing vaccines against the viruses may reduce the chances of developing neurodegeneration.
According to a new study, researchers believe they have discovered a potential new cause of Alzheimer's disease.
Researchers observe brain activity beyond a flat line EEG in human patients with extreme deep hypoxic comas.
The herpes simplex virus 1, the virus responsible for cold sores, may account for 50% of Alzheimer's disease cases. HSV1 causes protein deposits which are characteristic of Alzheimer's disease. Findings also reveal antiviral treatments can help to reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer's in those with HSV1.
