Are New Cognitive Tests Ready For Preclinical Trials? Do Tau Tracers Track Cognitive Decline in Disease? Growth Factor Therapy: Safe in Phase 1, Awaiting Efficacy Data Clinical Trials on Alzheimer’s Disease 2013 ...
Older people improved memory and attention after playing a challenging video game, supporting the idea that multitasking could have benefits for cognition.
Studies reported at AAIC demonstrate that biomarkers help predict who will develop cognitive impairment and dementia.
In a large retrospective study, people with the highest plasma levels of an inflammatory protein experienced the greatest decline in reasoning abilities over the next 10 years.
A close-up of the protein mayhem within the synaptic bouton offers scientists an unprecedented glimpse of the activity inside.
Do blood components really leak across an inflamed blood-brain barrier early on in the development of Alzheimer’s disease? Some GWAS hits and budding neuro-imaging and fluid markers are helping researchers find out.
At AAIC 2014, crenezumab Phase 2 trial results stirred debate.
A mouse study testing the combined effects of a BACE inhibitor and plaque-clearing antibody builds new support for a combination strategy aimed at reducing Aβ buildup in people.
A small panel of fluid biomarkers could predict a slow or fast disease course in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
Much like people with Alzheimer's, mice modelling the disease experience seizures. New research suggests that APP, and not Aβ, makes their neurons hyperexcitable.
Brain-training websites tout their games’ potential to boost cognition, but strong evidence and firm backing by the scientific community have yet to surface.
New imaging data suggests degeneration of the fornix could help identify seniors on the verge of cognitive decline.
A new grant opportunity will fund projects aimed at understanding the similarities and differences between biomarkers of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.
