Alzheimer's disease represents the most common form of dementia, with the early stages of the disease generally characterized with short term memory loss and learning difficulties that increase in severity as the patient progresses in age. Show More Summary
The progression of Alzheimer's may slow once symptoms appear and do significant damage, according to a study investigating an inherited form of the disease. Through an international study, researchers have found rapid neuronal damage begins 10 to 20 years before symptoms appear. Show More Summary
Thanks to the progress of medicine, these days we live much longer than just few decades ago. However, we don’t become healthier as we age. In the rapidly aging population, the problem of dementia is becoming particularly acute. In the majority of cases, dementia is associated with Alzheimer’s disease. This neurodegenerative disorder affects an estimated […]
Investigators at the University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands, have shown that progression of disease in memory clinic patients can be tracked efficiently with 45 minutes of neuropsychological testing. MRI measures of brain atrophy were...Show More Summary
WASHINGTON D.C. Feb. 17, 2014 -- Alzheimer's disease has long been marked by progress -- but not the kind of progress the medical community seeks. It is the most common form of dementia among older Americans, and its risk increases with...Show More Summary
New research findings indicate that an early onset of dietary treatment may slow down the progression of Alzheimer's disease. The study was conducted on mice, and the results will be published in the February issue of Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry. Show More Summary
Scientists have identified a critical regulator of a molecule deeply involved in the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.
Scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute have identified a critical regulator of a molecule deeply involved in the progression of Alzheimer's disease.
Memory A daily high dose of Vitamin E may slow early Alzheimer’s disease THE QUESTION Because no cure for Alzheimer’s exists, preventing or delaying its symptoms and progression has become the focus for those with the memory-robbing disorder. Might taking a large daily dose of Vitamin E help? Read full article >>
Vitamin E might slow functional decline in Alzheimer's Patients, reduce the amount of care needed by two hours a day; and, delay the loss of functions associated with the progression of dementia over time. By Bob DeMarco +Alzheimer's Reading Room Vitamin E is an antioxidant. Show More Summary
Alzheimer's caregivers are not very knowledgeable about brain cell death, and how you can go about developing new brain cells in an effort to delay the onset, and the progression of Alzheimer's disease. +Alzheimer's Reading Room “WeShow More Summary
Was stress reduction one of the reasons why the progression of some of the aspects of Alzheimer's disease slowed in my mother? By Bob DeMarco Alzheimer's Reading Room It is a well known scientific fact that stress impacts our health negatively. Show More Summary
I asked Rudy straight out, was it possible that the routine we had developed for my mother helped slow the progression of Alzheimer's, and otherwise explained why she was able to perform certain skills. By Bob DeMarco +Alzheimer's Reading...Show More Summary
Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of dementia among older people, yet there currently are no effective drugs to stop, slow or prevent disease progression. A study online December 5th in the ISSCR's journal Stem Cell Reports,...Show More Summary
It is my belief that the reduction of stress could reduce the progress of memory loss in Alzheimer's patients; and, could lead to a happier, more easy to deal with, person living with dementia. By Bob DeMarco +Alzheimer's Reading Room...Show More Summary
Carrying a particular version of the gene for apolipoprotein E (APOE) is the major known genetic risk factor for the sporadic, late-onset form of Alzheimer's disease, but exactly how that variant confers increased risk has been controversial among researchers.
It's well known that the brains of meditators change, but it's not entirely clear what those changes mean or how the changes might benefit the meditator. A new pilot study led by researchers at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center suggests...Show More Summary
Activities such as meditation can help us cope with stress, but they also have a significant effect on our overall health. New research has found that meditation and stress reduction may even be able to slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. It’s well known that the brains of meditators change, but it’s not entirely clear […]
There is a high correlation between perceived stress and Alzheimer’s disease, so we wanted to know if stress reduction through meditation might improve cognitive reserve. By Bob DeMarco +Alzheimer's Reading Room It is well known that...Show More Summary
A new pilot study led by researchers at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center suggests that the brain changes associated with meditation and stress reduction may play an important role in slowing the progression of age-related cognitive disorders like Alzheimer's disease and other dementias.
