Study finds new cognitive decline mechanism in Alzheimer's
A new animal study has identified the cellular mechanism that leads to reduced blood flow to the brain, which, in turn, impacts cognitive function.
Inflammation in midlife hastens cognitive decline
Understanding the risk factors of cognitive decline are now more important than ever. A recent study examined the potential role of inflammation.
Alzheimer's: How do tau tangles grow?
Researchers use a mathematical model and lab experiments to unravel the process through which tangles of the protein tau grow in length.
Blood-clotting protein contributes to Alzheimer's
Though experts typically name beta-amyloid plaques as the main culprits in Alzheimer's disease, new research finds another factor: a leaked blood protein.
Does education really protect against dementia?
Does the length of time an individual spends in education reduce the risk of developing dementia? A new, large-scale study investigates.
Dementia: Could gut bacteria play a role?
A new study links changes in gut bacteria to dementia. The researchers hope that their findings might, one day, help develop more effective treatment.
Dementia: The worrying 'rise of pseudomedicine'
In a recent article, a team of neurologists attacks an ongoing increase in pseudomedicine that claims to protect brain health and treat dementia.
Hearing loss and cognitive decline: Study probes link
Data from an 8-year study of 10,000 men aged 62 or older reveals a link between hearing loss and a markedly greater risk of subjective cognitive decline.
Mild cognitive impairment: Reducing blood pressure can lower risk
Controlling systolic blood pressure to below 120 mm Hg significantly lowered the risk of mild cognitive impairment in older adults.
How gum disease could lead to Alzheimer's
Researchers find that an oral bacterium usually linked to gum disease also plays a role in Alzheimer's. This finding has led to a new therapeutic approach.
Even low-level activity may help reduce dementia risk
According to a recent study, older adults who move around more are likely to have significantly better memory and thinking skills.
Alzheimer's: Could targeting this mechanism reverse memory decline?
New study identifies gene expression changes behind memory loss and shows how targeting them reverses the loss temporarily in a mouse model of Alzheimer's.
Alzheimer's blood test detects brain damage years before symptoms
Testing blood levels of a protein that brain cells leak when faulty or dying detected people with Alzheimer's disease years before their symptoms emerged.
Stool transplants from 'super donors' could be a cure-all
New research suggests that fecal transplants from 'super donors' could cure a host of conditions, ranging from irritable bowel syndrome to Alzheimer's.
Alzheimer's: What leads to brain cell damage?
The toxic beta-amyloid protein inactivates a protein that is key to the functioning of the parts of brain cells that receive signals from other cells.
Leaky blood vessels may trigger Alzheimer's
According to a recent study, leaky capillaries could be more important to the development of Alzheimer's disease than protein buildup in the brain.
Stress may raise the risk of Alzheimer's disease
A Danish population-based study finds a strong link between psychological distress and the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease.
Experimental drug may prevent Alzheimer's disease
A drug that researchers are testing against a range of conditions might also prevent Alzheimer's. The drug blocks toxic protein buildup in the brain.
A lack of deep sleep could indicate Alzheimer's development
Sleep is vital to many aspects of well-being. A new study finds that older adults who are not getting enough quality sleep may be developing Alzheimer's.
Exercise can help fight off Alzheimer's, but how?
Why does exercise have a protective effect on our memory? A new study conducted primarily in mice identifies a major factor that determines this effect.
Alzheimer's: 9 new genetic risk factors found
The largest genetic study of Alzheimer's to date finds nine entirely new genetic locations that contribute to the risk of developing the disease.
Nutrient in mother's diet may help fight Alzheimer's in offspring
Generations of mice descended from females whose diet was high in choline had fewer Alzheimer's hallmarks in the brain and better memory function.
Candida infection can reach brain and impair memory
New research shows that the Candida albicans fungus may lead to brain inflammation and impair memory in mice. The results have implications for dementia.
What were the most intriguing medical studies of 2018?
As 2018 slowly but surely draws to a close, we give you an overview of some of the most read and thought-provoking medical research of this year.
6 months of exercise may reverse mild cognitive impairment
A new study finds that 6 months of exercise, when added to dieting, can reverse 9 years of decline in certain cognitive functions.
