The search for a living laboratory model of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) — the so-called “Alzheimer’s in a dish” —has a new candidate. Researchers report success in creating induced neurons that model Alzheimer’s by starting with fibroblasts taken from skin biopsies.
Neurophysicists studying a key brain region where Alzheimer's disease begins have discovered how the brain processes virtual reality. 'The pattern of activity in a brain region involved in spatial learning in the virtual world is completely different than in the real world,' said the professor of physics, neurology, and neurobiology.
In recent years, research has linked sleep problems to Alzheimer’s disease. This relationship involves a neurotransmitter called orexin that awakens the brain from sleep and has shown to be heightened in moderate to severe sufferers of Alzheimer’s. Show More Summary
A protein that stimulates the brain to awaken from sleep may be a target for preventing Alzheimer's disease, a study suggests. The new research, in mice, demonstrates that eliminating that protein -- called orexin -- made mice sleep for longer periods of time and strongly slowed the production of brain plaques.
A protein that stimulates the brain to awaken from sleep may be a target for preventing Alzheimer's disease, a study by researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis suggests.

The cerebral cortex lacks the ability to replace neurons that die as a result of Alzheimer's, stroke, and other devastating diseases. A new study shows that a Sox2 protein, alone or in combination with another protein, Ascl1, can cause nonneuronal cells, called NG2 glia, to turn into neurons in the injured cerebral cortex of adult mice.
