(UT Southwestern Medical Center) A protein linked to higher risk of Alzheimer's can be removed from the brains of mice without hindering memory and learning, according to a study that addresses whether potential therapeutics targeting this protein would have detrimental side effects.
Past studies have linked diabetes to increased risk of cognitive decline. Now, new research suggests that people who develop diabetes and high blood pressure in middle age may be at higher risk of brain cell loss and memory and thin...
New research suggests the link between stress and Alzheimer's may be driven by a stress hormone that boosts production of an Alzheimer's-related protein in the brain.
A toxic Alzheimer's protein can spread through the brain via the extracellular space that surrounds the brain's neurons, finds a study from Columbia University Medical Center.
A study of mice suggests blocking a protein important for controlling immune cells in the brain could halt or limit memory loss and other damage seen in Alzheimer's disease.
