Alzheimer’s

New study enhances knowledge about widespread diseases
December 13, 2019
When proteins in the brain form deposits consisting of insoluble aggregates, diseases such as Alzheimer's or Parkinson's can occur. Now a research team has come a step closer to understanding this process.
How two experimental Alzheimer's drugs reverse aging
December 13, 2019
New research in mice reveals the mechanisms through which two experimental drugs that may treat Alzheimer's disease have broader, anti-aging properties and can reverse age-related cognitive decline....

Experts review evidence yoga is good for the brain
December 12, 2019
Scientists have known for decades that aerobic exercise strengthens the brain and contributes to the growth of new neurons, but few studies have examined how yoga affects the brain. A review of the science finds evidence that yoga enhances many of the same brain structures and functions that benefit...

Mouse study tests a novel approach against Alzheimer's
December 12, 2019
Using mouse models of Alzheimer's disease, researchers have been looking into a new approach to slow down the progression of this neurodegenerative disease — a ketone ester-rich diet....

Transport breakdown in brain cells may lead to Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s
December 11, 2019
New research in mice and flies suggests that failure to transport molecules that break down proteins in neurons may lead to neurodegenerative diseases.
Scientists eager to explain brain rhythm boost’s broad impact in Alzheimer’s models
December 11, 2019
Neuroscientists lay out the the few knowns and many unknowns that must be understood to determine why sensory stimuluation of 40Hz brain rhythms have broad effects, particularly in Alzheimer's models.
Your genes aren’t the only factor dictating Alzheimer’s risk
December 11, 2019
In the first study published about Alzheimer's disease among identical triplets, researchers found that despite sharing the same DNA, two of the triplets developed Alzheimer's while one did not.
The secret to a long life? For worms, a cellular recycling protein is key
December 11, 2019
Scientists have shown that worms live longer lives if they produce excess levels of a protein, p62, which recognizes toxic cell proteins that are tagged for destruction. The discovery could help uncover treatments for age-related conditions, such as Alzheimer's disease, which are often caused by acc...

Alzheimer’s drug candidates reverse broader aging, study shows
December 10, 2019
In mouse models of Alzheimer's disease, the investigational drug candidates known as CMS121 and J147 improve memory and slow the degeneration of brain cells. Now, researchers have shown how these compounds can also slow aging in healthy older mice, blocking the damage to brain cells that normally oc...

Eating more ketones may fight against Alzheimer’s disease
December 9, 2019
A ketone-supplemented diet may protect neurons from death during the progression of Alzheimer's disease, according to research in mice.
