Nerve growth factor ( NGF ) gene therapy may slow the rate of cognitive decline in patients with Alzheimer’s disease and increase metabolic activity in the brain. Cholinergic neuron loss is a car ...


Physical activity seems to inhibit Alzheimer's-like brain changes in mice. The research demonstrated that long-term physical activity enhanced the learning ability of mice and decreased the level ...


Results from a long-term National Institute on Aging study of diet and brain aging showed that adults who eat the daily recommended allowance of folates -- B-vitamin nutrients found in oranges, legume ...


A research found that loss of body mass over time appears to be strongly linked to older adults' risk of developing Alzheimer's disease ( AD ), and the greater the loss the greater the chance of a per ...


A study found that consuming fish at least once a week was associated with a 10 percent per year slower rate of cognitive decline in elderly people. Fish is a direct source of omega-3 fatty acids, ...


The search for new biomarkers to detect Alzheimer's disease before signs of memory loss appear has advanced an important step in a study by researchers at Washington University in St. Louis, and the ...


People with high blood pressure and their doctors have a new reason to work at controlling this common but high-risk condition: As patients get older, they might otherwise have worse-than-normal probl ...


Older adults who exercised at least three times a week were much less likely to develop dementia than those who were less active. The study did not demonstrate directly that exercise reduces risk o ...


A UCLA/Veterans Affairs study has implicated defects in the machinery that creates connections between brain cells as responsible for the onset of Alzheimer disease. The defect in PAK enzyme signa ...


A research at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign showed that training re-ignites key areas of the brain, offsetting some age-related declines and boosting performance. The findings, in ...


Tetrabenazine ( Xenazine ) cut down involuntary movement in patients with Huntington's disease on average by about 25 percent, with many patients experiencing a greater improvement. The study is pu ...


A drug dramatically eases one of the most disabling symptoms of Huntington'’s disease, involuntary writhing movements known as chorea. The medication is Tetrabenazine ( Xenazine ). In a random ...


Researchers at Northwestern University have developed a novel orally administered compound specifically targeted to suppress brain cell inflammation and neuron loss associated with Alzheimer's disease ...


Researchers have provided the first conclusive evidence that neurodevelopmental disorders such as mental retardation and neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease an ...


Results from four studies of potential new treatments for Alzheimer's increase the field's knowledge and point scientists toward advances in therapies for the disease, according to research reported a ...
