Two studies examine factors that heighten the risk for dementia in type 2 diabetes patients. Both highlight depression as a dangerous comorbidity.
Amyloid fibrils seeded by Alzheimer’s brain extracts indicate that Aβ forms specific strains in different individuals.
Speakers at Alzheimer’s conference reviewed planned Phase 1 and prevention trials and preclinical studies.
The latest news on C9ORF72 includes a genetic modifier, various animal models, and a potential treatment to untangle stable, guanine-based structures formed by expanded repeats.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis may be inherited more often than previously believed, prompting neurologists to rethink how they define familial versus sporadic disease.
Data from Phase 3 solanezumab and bapineuzumab trials are formally published. Both missed their primary endpoints, but researchers gleaned insights about Alzheimer’s diagnosis and biomarkers, as well as how to proceed with amyloid immunotherapy therapy.
Researchers are increasingly branching out from their old focus on Aβ and tau to understand how these proteins intersect with physiological processes and new genetic regulatory mechanisms in the aging brain.
If you listen to National Public Radio, watch TV, or surf the Web, chances are you have come across commercials enticing you to “improve your memory” and “unlock your inner genius” with “brain training developed by neuroscientists.” In search of solid ...
