A group of scientist has developed a blood test that accurately detects early stage Alzheimer's disease.
Alzheimer’s is a diseases that most people have probably heard about, something that deals with affects a person’s manner of thinking and also the ability to interact socially.
Mice were once again used as test subjects in medical science's quest to find a cure for Alzheimer's disease.
The legendary country singer, Glen Campbell, who was once rocking the world with his famous songs, rocked the world once again when he shared that he has an Alzheimer’s during the first stages of the disease.
Initila studies showed that adults with mild cognitive impairment who were at least 68 years old who had the blueberry powder exhibited improvement in cognitive performance and brain function in comparison with those who received the placebo.
A healthy and active brain can delay symptoms of Alzheimer's by a few years, a new study said.
Bloomberg School of Public Health at John Hopkins University developed tiny brain replicas to get deeper into the neurological diseases and its study
John Hopkins-based scientists are working on a lab grown mini-replica of human brain in an attempt to understand brain diseases better and replace animal drug testing.
New findings show that head injuries can lead to Alzheimer's disease.
Scientists find that Alzheimer's disease tends to affect areas of the brain involved in memory, mainly because of activities akin to "load-shifting" in the brain.
Frequent exposure to environmental toxin, BMAA, is not good for one's brain health, a new study is reporting.
An experiment has shown odor changes in urine could be used to detect the disease even before the formation of amyloid plaques are noticed in the brain.
A UK-based study suggests that targeting the build-up of immune cells that caused brain inflammation holds the key to treating Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.
A diet plan devised to halt the effects of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia was ranked as the easiest to follow by health experts in a US News-led report on the Best Diets of 2016.
The newly approved money bill for Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia has significantly increased but no funding for programs that support existing patients has been proposed.
The BioScience Talks podcast features discussions of topical issues related to the biological sciences. By altering the heritability of certain traits, gene drive technologies have the potential to spread desired genes through wild populations. In practice, this could lead to mosquito populations that, for example, bear traits making them resistant to the spread of malaria. Despite the huge potential for improving human well-being, concern exists that gene drives could fail in the wild or, perhaps more concerning, spread beyond their intended target populations.
