A review of several studies on the use of statin medications to prevent heart attacks has wiped out any possibility for short-term memory loss.
Scientists have successfully been able to implant a false memory in a mouse by manipulating brain cells that encode that information, according to a new study.
A new study suggests that seniors who have irregular heartbeats known as atrial fibrillation are more likely to experience faster memory loss than seniors with normal heart.
The animal has a simple nervous system, but has cells with properties that resemble that of more complex animals like humans.
Researchers found that people who suffer from complicated grief after losing a loved one might have difficulty recalling certain memories.
Researchers found that a particular extract in green tea may help with treating Alzheimer's.
Poor quality of sleep during old age prevents memories from being stored in the brain, according to a new study. Researchers say that the study helps understand the link between memory, the aging brain and sleep quality, and add that the new findings will pave the way for new therapeutics designed to strengthen memory and improve the quality of life in older adults.
For people who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, here's a breather. A recent study suggests that the rate of memory loss can be significantly lowered if the patient does physical exercise regularly.
A new study reveals that memory loss can begin as early as age 30, even though the average age at which people generally experience memory loss is about 57 years. An online survey of people below 50 years revealed that while 11 percent of respondents reported noticing memory loss in their 40s, six percent said they did so in their 30s itself. Also, it was found that most of the people below 50 years of age live in the fear of memory loss and many of them also experience memory loss pretty often.
Although it might sound spooky, a new research claims to have made old brains lively again, with young blood! A new research, which involved replacing ageing mice's blood with younger animals,' found out that the young blood helped rejuvenate the ageing brains by improving the connections between brain cells and memory.
