In a new study, researchers identify the CMPK2 enzyme that plays a huge role in triggering inflammation. This finding could help design an inhibitor that can help slow down chronic inflammatory disorders such as cancer, Alzheimer's, and Parkinson's.
Alzheimer's is a devastating disease — and what's worse is a large part of the disease is still a mystery. A new study sheds some light in one of the factors that could contribute to Alzheimer's: high blood pressure.
Extra-virgin olive olive could help protect the brain from Alzheimer's disease.
Traditional medicine from Nigeria could pave way to a new drug that could potentially treat Alzheimer's disease.
Walking for 30 minutes, four times a week, could potentially increase the capacity of the brain to compensate for the neural pathology associated with Alzheimer's disease.
Plasma from human umbilical cords and younger mice have surprisingly proven to improve cognitive function of old mice.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced on Thursday that it will allow the marketing of 23andMe Personal Genome Service Genetic Health Risk (GHR) tests to give consumers information regarding their risk to certain diseases.
The potential of marijuana and other cannabis products to help treat dementia and other disorders have appeared time and time again in various researchers. However, further research into testing these potential medications have been continuously blocked by the law.
More reports are starting to emerge about the possible relationship between the pollution in the air and neurological diseases. This poses yet another dangerous threat to the mental health of people in high-risk cities that have a lot of air pollution.

A new study from the University of Eastern Finland revealed that men who frequent to sauna baths were less likely to be diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia.
The new Dementia Research Institute in Britain wants to make dementia as "controllable" as HIV, if its research in the matter proves to be fruitful in the next few years. This can prove helpful to a lot of people suffering from the condition, which has baffled people in the scientific field for decades.
A team of researchers from the University of Arizona has revealed that runners' brains, just like musicians, are more connected than everyone else. This new discovery may show that running could affect brain structure and function.
It seems scientists need only two things to treat Alzheimer's -- a bulb and a few switches. Figuratively, of course. An hour's worth of light therapy per day has seen to break down Alzheimer's-like brain deposits in mice. And while this may seem like a long way to go for human treatment, the possibility of human trials is indeed promising.
