Scientists show that the drug, ampakine, can prevent age-related changes in the brain cells of mice.
A Danish-led study links moderate alcohol consumption to lower death risks among patients diagnosed with mild Alzheimer's. While the exact causes were not determined, experts speculated that it's probably due to socialization associated with drinking
Doctors might soon be able to screen for Alzheimer's disease without the use of radiation and a contrast agent, a new study reported.
A new case study has opened up a potential new route for researchers to take when examining ways to prevent the most common form of dementia.
A new study found that a third of all future alzheimer's cases can be prevented if people reduced their risk factors.
A new German study found that a cheap, diabetes drug can reduce the risk of Alzheimer's disease.

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.
