Higher body fat leads to increased atrophy of the brain’s gray matter and a greater risk of cognitive decline, researchers report.
Researchers recreated the damage seen in frontotemporal dementia in brain organoid models. The study reveals an experimental drug designed to treat Crohn’s disease may help prevent neuron death associated with FTD.
Previous studies have linked air pollution to an increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease and a number of other disorders. Researchers report reducing air pollution significantly decreases dementia risk and slows cognitive decline in older women.
Mouse and human studies reveal Interleukin-3 may modify immune responses in the brain that cause cell death and lead to Alzheimer’s disease.
The desire of older adults to live to an advanced aged was significantly reduced by hypothetical adverse life events, such as the prospects of developing dementia or chronic pain conditions.
A new study reveals adults with ADHD have an increased risk of developing nervous system, respiratory, musculoskeletal, and metabolic diseases. ADHD was also associated with a slightly increased risk of Parkinson’s disease, dementia, and cardiovascular…
A new study strengthens previous research linking dental health to dementia and cognitive decline. Researchers found tooth loss is a risk factor for cognitive decline and dementia, and with each tooth lost, the risk for cognitive impairment increases.
Chronic stress which involves the HPA axis may contribute to the development of Alzheimer’s disease, researchers report.
Researchers present preliminary findings of Alzheimer’s disease onset and progression in Mexican Americans and other diverse, often overlooked populations.
Subtle changes in fractal motor activity regulation in cognitively healthy women may be a sign of preclinical Alzheimer’s disease, researchers report.
A new online calculator can be used by individuals to assess their dementia risk and make lifestyle changes that can help decrease risk factors for neurodegeneration.
Nine out of ten older adults who reported symptoms of cognitive decline associated with dementia did not have a clinical diagnosis of neurodegeneration.
Higher levels of two cytokines were associated with slower cognitive decline in aging adults, a new study reports.
Self-reported cognitive decline was associated with altered functional connectivity in the hippocampus and dorsal anterior insular, a new study reports.
A new model of Alzheimer’s progression highlights the link between glial cells, toxic protein buildup, and neurodegeneration.
Combining artificial intelligence technology with data sets related to both Alzheimer’s and COVID-19, researchers were able to identify a mechanism by which coronavirus can lead to Alzheimer’s-like symptoms. The findings add to the growing body of evid…
Naked mole rats have a unique DNA repair mechanism that prevents them from developing cancers and neurodegenerative disorders, researchers say.
A new study sheds light on how genes are regulated in dementia. Researchers also identified 84 novel genes linked to dementia.
People diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or mild cognitive impairment had weaker gamma wave activation in their brains than their peers without the neurodegenerative disorders.
Making small lifestyle changes, such as improving diet, exercising, enjoying social activities, and reducing blood pressure, can reduce the risk of developing dementia in older people with certain risk factors.
