The MIND diet stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay and has been shown to improve brain health and reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. As we age, the threat of developing Alzheimer’s increases. Although the cause of Alzheimer’s… Read More
Marijuana use has been linked to Alzheimer’s disease risk, as researchers recorded low blood flow to the brain among users. There is a strong push in the U.S. to legalize marijuana, but the long-term effects of the drug have been… Read More
A non-invasive method to diagnose Alzheimer’s disease has shown promise in detecting the condition early on. The researchers developed a technology that can identify the pathological oligomeric forms of brain tau proteins in blood platelets of patients with Alzheimer’s disease… Read More
Glaucoma treatment may have potential in helping prevent Alzheimer’s disease, according to new research. The study was conducted on rats using the glaucoma drug brimonidine, which is intended to lower ocular pressure. The study uncovered that this drug also… Read More
Researchers have compared Alzheimer’s and normal brains and uncovered specific brain regions to be targeted for dementia prevention. While memory decline (to a certain degree) has always been seen as a normal part of aging, researchers have uncovered that some… Read More
A new study has found that patients taking statins – cholesterol-lowering drugs – have a reduced risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers from the University of Southern California and University of Arizona analyzed 399,979 men and women and found that… Read More
Early signs of Alzheimer’s disease have been found in the brain area associated with memory formation and information processing. The study confirmed that two molecules assumed to contribute to Alzheimer’s pathogenesis were present in the brain area involved in memory… Read More
New Alzheimer’s disease treatment and prevention opportunity has been recently discovered. In their study on donated brains, the researchers uncovered a correlation between the prevalence of aquaporin-4 (a membrane protein in the brain) among seniors who didn’t have Alzheimer’s disease,… Read More
