New research proposes a neuroimmune receptor as the latest Aβ binding partner.
The first report on PBB3, the latest tau ligand for brain imaging under development, suggests it binds all types of tau aggregate.
Rare mutations in the ADAM10 gene make a genetic case for the amyloid cascade as a cause of late onset Alzheimer's disease.
As NIH researchers are preparing to return to their laboratories, Alzheimer's researchers warn about the greater consequences of cutting already limited resources.
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.
Sleeping in an MRI scanner, babies with ApoE4 genotype reveal myelination and structural differences in brain areas affected in people with Alzheimer’s disease.
Researchers identify a transcription factor that protects neurons during normal aging but goes AWOL in Alzheimer’s brains.
Plenty of genetic risk factors for sporadic ALS are still waiting to be found, according to a new meta-analysis of GWAS data.
