While a low-protein diet can accelerate neurodegeneration, consuming Amino LP7, a combination of essential amino acids, could slow the progression or inhibit the development of dementia.
A new study takes significant steps in understanding how poor memory performance can be inherited.
Researchers have successfully used stem cell therapy to regenerate neurons in damaged areas of zebra fish spinal cords. The treatment helped to restore movement following SCI. The findings raise the possibility of developing new treatments for humans suffering paralysis as a result of spinal cord injury.

A new clinical trial will test whether an experimental vaccine can help patients' immune systems to stop the spread of deadly glioblastoma brain cancer.
Study reflects on the possible use of fecal microbiome transplants and pre/probiotics to help with the treatment of Parkinson's disease. Findings reveal fecal transplants have not yet been proven to be effective for motor symptoms associated with the condition, and probiotics have only been shown to assist with constipation.
Study reveals statins are associated with a reduced risk of Alzheimer's disease, but the reduction of risk varied by race, ethnicity and statin type.
Neuroscience researchers have identified a new molecular pathway underlying Parkinson's disease. The pathway involves polyamines, which were discovered to be responsible for increased build-up of other toxic proteins in neurons. The research also suggests polyamine lowering drugs could have a protective effect from Parkinson's disease.
