Imaging technique shows progress Alzheimer's disease

Using ‘Raman’ optical technology, scientists can now produce images of brain tissue that is affected by Alzheimer’s disease. The images include the surrounding areas, already showing changes.

Recent Research Implicates Astrocytes in the Progression of Alzheimer's Disease

yesterdayHealth / Aging : Fight Aging

Astrocytes are one of a number of different classes of supporting cells of the brain, and researchers here investigate how they might be involved in the progression of Alzheimer's disease - though with the caution they they are looking at early-onset Alzheimer's linked to specific mutations.

Environmental Factors in Development of Alzheimer’s Disease

Alzheimer’s disease is one of those conditions where genetics is known to play a profound role but is not the sole factor in disease development and progression. The evidence is mounting that the environment has a great deal to do with the development of this neurodegenerative disorder. Moreover, it is now known that the right […]

Microbial Theories of Alzheimer's Disease are Gaining Support

3 months agoHealth / Aging : Fight Aging

The lack of concrete progress in the amyloid clearance approach to Alzheimer's disease, despite significant investment and many clinical trials over the past decade, has led to a great deal of theorizing in the research community. Is...Show More Summary

Physical activity and dementia: another negative study, another void in news coverage

If you Google the search terms “physical activity” and “Alzheimer’s disease,” you will be served up a long list of links that almost exclusively tout the notion that exercise could help prevent or slow down the progression of dementia. They are reassuring and hopeful messages but arguably not representative of the mixed science on this […]

Could olfactory loss point to Alzheimer's disease?

(McGill University) Simple odor identification tests may help track the progression of Alzheimer's disease before symptoms actually appear, particularly among those at risk.

Role for lysosome transport in Alzheimer's disease progression revealed

Researchers have discovered that defects in the transport of lysosomes within neurons promote the buildup of protein aggregates in the brains of mice with Alzheimer's disease. The study suggests that developing ways to restore lysosome transport could represent a new therapeutic approach to treating the neurodegenerative disorder.

Scientists reveal role for lysosome transport in Alzheimer's disease progression

(Rockefeller University Press) Researchers from Yale University School of Medicine have discovered that defects in the transport of lysosomes within neurons promote the buildup of protein aggregates in the brains of mice with Alzheimer's disease. Show More Summary

Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive neurogenerative disorder that destroys memory and other important mental functions. The origin of this disease is shrouded in mystery, and even the top researchers don’t know exactly how it develops. Show More Summary

Neurodegenerative diseases: A biophysical smoking gun

While much about Alzheimer's disease remains a mystery, scientists do know that part of the disease's progression involves a normal protein called tau, aggregating to form ropelike inclusions within brain cells that eventually strangle the neurons. Yet how this protein transitions from its soluble liquid state to solid fibers has remained unknown -- until now.

This is what Alzheimer’s disease does to the brain

5 months agoNews : The Raw Story

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a progressive brain disease and the 6th leading cause of death in the U.S. While symptoms of AD such as memory loss and impaired judgement are widely recognized, we know less about what the disease does to the brain. Science still has a long way to go when it comes to...

Cognitive tests can detect early Alzheimer’s disease in older adults without symptoms

Early detection could be a powerful tool to manage Alzheimer’s. Early detection gives people time to try different medications or interventions that may slow the progression of Alzheimer's disease. We have reached the point where cognitive tests are able to detect early Alzheimer’s in people without symptoms. Show More Summary

Orange County doctor figures out way to stop Alzheimer’s progression

Like his father before him and millions of others, Ted Esau’s brain started to deteriorate in his late-50s. Plaque was building up. Part of his brain was starting to shrink. Although invisible to everyone including himself, the first stages of Alzheimer’s disease were beginning to take hold. But following a program of healthy eating, exercise, […]

Alzheimer's Disease as Laminopathy

6 months agoHealth / Aging : Fight Aging

The lack of tangible progress over the last fifteen years towards working therapies for Alzheimer's disease that are based on clearing amyloid has led to a great diversity of alternative thinking on the causes and pathology of the condition, as well as on other approaches to treatment.
