Noninvasive eye scan can detect key signs of Alzheimer’s Disease in humans.

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a fatal neurodegenerative disorder as well as the leading cause of senile dementia worldwide, with no effective treatment and limited functionality for early diagnosis.  Now, a … Continue Reading Noninvasive eye scan can detect key signs of Alzheimer’s Disease in humans.

Study shows that vesicles appear to also contribute to Alzheimer’s disease.

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is characterized by cognitive decline, alteration of synaptic transmission, and neuronal death brought on by accumulation of neurofibrillary tangles in neurons and amyloid beta in the brain.  … Continue Reading Study shows that vesicles appear to also contribute to Alzheimer’s disease.

Researchers elevate brain protein to allay symptoms of Alzheimer’s in animal model.

Alzheimer’s disease is characterized by the degeneration of neurons in the hippocampus and cortex, and the appearance of neuritic plaques and neurofibrillary tangles.  Although the precise cause of Alzheimer’s disease remains … Continue Reading Researchers elevate brain protein to allay symptoms of Alzheimer’s in animal model.

Neuroimaging can identify start and location of amyloid plaques in living brain.

Primary progressive aphasia (PPA) is a form of dementia characterized by degeneration of the language network.  In the early stages, PPA is associated with a left-lateralized pattern of cortical atrophy … Continue Reading Neuroimaging can identify start and location of amyloid plaques in living brain.
