A large, cross-sectional study finds that RO-948 PET discriminates AD dementia from other disorders more accurately than do CSF biomarkers or MRI.
Harvard or MIT? The microbiomes of mice raised in different facilities dictated their response to C9 deficiency, including whether they died young. Do gut microbes influence ALS?
Separately, cerebrovascular disease drove an uptick in neurofilament light in the brain, indicating neurodegeneration.
Chemicals and particulates may slip across the blood-brain barrier or travel up olfactory nerves to directly affect brain cells. What are the consequences for cognition?
Growing evidence suggests exposure to air pollution increases risk of brain damage and dementia. More definitive research is needed.
The plasma biomarker neurofilament light was able to distinguish individual mutation carriers from noncarriers three years prior to onset.
Umbilical cord stem cells from presenilin 1 E280A carriers, once differentiated into cholinergic-like neurons, pumped out Aβ42 and accumulated phosphorylated tau and apoptotic markers.
Using a form of confocal microscopy and automated software, the method allows researchers to rapidly identify functional synapses within brain structures.
Induced neurons lacking the Alzheimer’s risk gene can’t properly recycle APP.
Researchers identify a way to isolate human astrocytes generated from induced pluripotent stem cells. And astrocytes stand out in FTD-prone brain areas.
In stark contrast to Aβ and tau fibrils, α-synuclein fibrils are asymmetric, comprising two different protofibrils.
