Known for his contributions to the fundamental understanding of the tau protein, Skip Binder leaves his mark on the Alzheimer's field.
The latest data on TREM2 confirm that a variant in the gene associates with AD, and link it to Parkinson’s, brain degeneration, and γ-secretase.
A new study proposes microtubule-chopping enzymes as the missing link in the cascade of pathology leading from Aβ to tau to neuronal death.
As NIH researchers are preparing to return to their laboratories, Alzheimer's researchers warn about the greater consequences of cutting already limited resources.
An astrocyte protein stymies toxic interplay between Aβ oligomers and prion proteins.
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.
Sleeping in an MRI scanner, babies with ApoE4 genotype reveal myelination and structural differences in brain areas affected in people with Alzheimer’s disease.
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.
Changing ApoE levels in midlife influences Aβ pathology in mice, supporting an ApoE-oriented therapeutic strategy in Alzheimer’s disease.
Conventional wisdom says that excess excitation promotes degeneration of motor neurons in ALS, but a new study suggests excitability could be a good thing.
A mouse study suggests it may be possible to co-opt the liver to boost expression of neurotrophins in the brain.
Two studies strengthen the link between shut-eye and Alzheimer’s disease, and a mouse analysis of how the brain drains waste offers insight into the connection.
Meet ADCS-PACC, C3: Composites that measure subtle changes in cognition appear reliable, clearing the way for their use in clinical trials of people with presymptomatic AD.
New strategies may help find and retain participants for Alzheimer’s trials.
New research strengthens the idea that microglia do far more than scour the brain for emergencies.
