New Drug To Protect Against Alzheimer: Study

New York: Researchers have discovered a new drug which may protect against c nerve damage and other symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease. Preclinical research published in the Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics found that the drug — called BPN14770 — deters the effects of amyloid beta, a hallmark protein of Alzheimer’s that is toxic to […]

Poor sleep may predict Alzheimer's risk in elderly

New York: Poor sleep quality may signal the risk of Alzheimer’s disease in older adults, a study suggests. People with Alzheimer’s tend to wake up tired and their nights become even less refreshing as memory loss and other symptoms worsen. However, the reason was not fully understood. The study, led by the Washington University in […]

Exercise can help boost memory through bone hormone: Study

New York: Researchers have identified a naturally occurring bone hormone that can potentially reverse memory loss in the ageing brain through exercise. The study on the hormone osteocalcin lends new insight into how lifestyle changes that affect the body, such as exercise, could positively affect the brain. “Nearly everyone will experience age-related memory loss in […]

Hearing loss may indicate memory impairment for some

Los Angeles: Elderly people with a certain type of hearing loss may be more likely to also have memory loss and thinking problems called mild cognitive impairment, says a study. The study, presented at the American Academy of Neurology’s 70th Annual Meeting in Los Angeles, looked at people with peripheral age-related hearing loss, which is […]

How seizures may lead to memory loss

New York: Researchers have discovered a mechanism that can explain how even relatively infrequent seizures can lead to memory loss and other cognitive deficits.

Baby boomers' brains could reveal secrets of dementia

London: The brains of baby boomers – those born between the years 1946 and 1964 – could hold the key to unlocking the secrets of dementia, scientists believe. Researchers have begun scanning the brains of 500 members of Britain’s longest running birth cohort study, as part of efforts to find a cure for Alzheimer’s disease, […]

Protein that causes memory loss in healthy brains

London: A brain protein believed to be a key component in the progress of dementia can cause memory loss in healthy brains even before physical signs of degeneration appear, says a new University of Sussex study. The study reveals a direct link between the main culprit of Alzheimer’s disease and memory loss. Alzheimer’s disease is […]
