Functional neuroimaging scans can pick up stark neural abnormalities in football players with repeated head injuries before their cognition drops much in executive function tests.
An astrocyte protein stymies toxic interplay between Aβ oligomers and prion proteins.
People with previous head injuries may be more prone to amyloid deposition and have a higher risk for Alzheimer's.
Researchers have sliced and digitally reassembled a famous brain in neuroscience to view its detailed three-dimensional architecture.
Live imaging of the mouse brain offers a rare view of α-synuclein dynamics at presynaptic terminals, and raises questions about which form of the protein triggers synaptic dysfunction.
Astrocytes kindle neuronal hyperexcitability in mouse models of Huntington’s.
If new results hold up, enhanced phosphorylation of a ribosomal protein may explain the toxicity of mutations that cause Parkinson's.
A small molecule inhibitor kills all microglia in the brain, but the cells rapidly repopulate from a previously unidentified progenitor cell.
A new study charges that, contrary to previous studies, seeding the mouse brain with aggregated α-synuclein does not trigger a toxic spread of PD-like inclusions in wild-type mice.
A small longitudinal study suggests that atrophy begins in the frontoparietal cortex, not the hippocampus, in early Alzheimer's.
Studies support the idea that mitochondrial changes drive aging and AD pathogenesis.
Sleeping in an MRI scanner, babies with ApoE4 genotype reveal myelination and structural differences in brain areas affected in people with Alzheimer’s disease.
People with neurodegeneration but not brain amyloid surface in two new studies of preclinical AD, suggesting this odd population is both legitimate and potentially large.
Researchers identify a transcription factor that protects neurons during normal aging but goes AWOL in Alzheimer’s brains.
Allegations of falsified data embroil Japanese ADNI; project leaders respond that data corrections followed quality-control procedures.
