You might want to cover your nose the next time you are going out the city. A study conducted by the researchers of Universities Lancaster, Oxford and Manchester found out that the air we breathe can potentially increase the risk of having Alzheimer's disease.
Scientists were able to target a specifc brain activity in the brain called sleep spindles using tACS to enhance memory.
Naturally ocurring compund resveratrol could delay symptoms of Alzheimer's by restoring the integrity of the blood-brain barrier.
Researchers at Georgetown made first ever diagnosis of dementia in an elderly HIV-positive patient.
Color blindness affects a significant portion of the population, most notably men. And now, new research has identified a new gene mutation that could possibly cause this condition.
Memories that have been "lost" as a result of amnesia have recently been retrieved in mice using light, according to a new study.
Researchers have determined that a single gene variant is responsible to giving aging women a much higher risk of developing Alzheimer's disease, compared to men of the same age.
A new diet, appropriately known by the acronym MIND, could significantly lower a person's risk of developing Alzheimer's disease (AD), according to new research.
Scientists have finally figured out why it is that men can't seem to remember to pick up their socks or grab the shampoo from the supermarket: they really do have worse memories than women, according to a new study.
A new drug approach helped restore the memory of elderly patients who are at high risk for dementia due to Alzheimer's, and may potentially delay the onset of this debilitating disease, according to new research.
We all worry about Alzheimer's disease from time-to-time, especially if we've had the unfortunate experience of watching a loved one suffer from it late in life. Now new research has revealed that a key hallmark of the encroaching disease, the accumulation of an abnormal protein in the brain, can start in people as young as 20 years old - younger than scientists ever imagined.
If only beer were as good for you as the press has been making red wine out to be. The pub crawlers everywhere could celebrate with a hearty and healthy brew! Now, they may have reason to do just hat. Researchers have found a compound from hops could help protect the brain from damage, and potentially even slow the onset of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.
Cocoa extract may prevent or reduce damage to nerve pathways found in patients with Alzheimer's disease, slowing the progression of often inevitable and debilitating cognitive decline.
Researchers from Johns Hopkins University have successfully mapped out the immensely convoluted pathways of cholinergic neurons - the largest nerve cells in the brain and the first cells to break down during Alzheimer's disease.
