Could lupus raise dementia risk?

Thu, 09 Nov 2017 08:00:00 PST

Researchers from Israel have discovered that people with systemic lupus erythematosus may be at increased risk of developing dementia.

Does blood flow from the heart affect memory?

Thu, 09 Nov 2017 00:00:00 PST

Emerging research shows that reduced blood flow from the heart is tied to poor circulation in the brain's memory 'hub,' where Alzheimer's also originates.

Alzheimer's: Preserving neurons may prevent depression, cognitive decline

Tue, 07 Nov 2017 07:00:00 PST

A study in rats finds that drugs that stop brain cell death may offer a new way to treat those with Alzheimer's who have depression with cognitive decline.

Gene therapy may protect brain from age-related cognitive decline

Thu, 02 Nov 2017 07:00:00 PST

One dose of a gene therapy that raises levels of the protein Klotho in the brain protected younger mice against age-related cognitive decline.

Is the bold claim that a nutrient drink can slow Alzheimer's true?

Thu, 02 Nov 2017 03:00:00 PST

There is no cure for Alzheimer's, but research claims that nutrients can help to regrow lost brain connections. What does the latest clinical trial show?

Could inflammation in midlife predict dementia?

Thu, 02 Nov 2017 00:00:00 PST

A new study adds to mounting evidence of inflammation's role in dementia. Inflammation in our 40s may predict dementia later in life.

Alzheimer's: Protein from outside the brain may be involved

Tue, 31 Oct 2017 07:00:00 PST

A new study in mice finds that amyloid beta from outside the brain can cause brain plaques, neuron damage, and other hallmarks of Alzheimer's disease.
