Balanced stones
Scientists have demonstrated that “the Alzheimer’s allele” APOE e4 helps cognition earlier in life prior to the onset of the disease [1]. This might point at a possible reason for some aspects of aging. What makes us stronger kills us later The risk of developing Alzheimer's, one of the deadliest age-related diseases, is considerably elevated...
Gut brain inflammation
A recent review published in Cureus shows why fecal microbial transplantation (FMT) might be able to help sufferers of Alzheimer's disease, showing how tightly the gut and brain are intertwined. Why would this ever work? The gut and brain are closely linked through biochemistry, and last month, we published an article about how the gut...
Journal Club
Journal Club returns on July 27th at noon Eastern / 17:00 UK live on our Facebook page. A new way to look at Alzheimer's The topic for this month will be a new study that challenges the amyloid hypothesis of Alzheimer's disease with new human data. The data suggests that the cognitive impairment that accompanies...
Solving brain puzzle
A recent study, led by the University of Cincinnati in collaboration with the Karolinska Institute in Sweden, challenges the popular amyloid hypothesis that has dominated Alzheimer’s research for decades. Amyloid accumulation may be the consequence, not the cause Over 100 years ago, Alois Alzheimer originally identified amyloid-beta plaques in the brains of people with the...

Quality sleep is one of the foundations of health, and a new study suggests that poor sleep quality is a major risk factor for developing Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Dementia is a rising global problem Worldwide, close to fifty million people currently live with Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia. According to the...
Neurons
Scientists have successfully improved learning and memory, as well as neuronal morphology, in Alzheimer’s-prone mice with the help of a gene therapy that upregulates a vital protein [1]. Alzheimer’s disease (AD) has been a notoriously hard problem to crack, despite major R&D investment. AD has long been associated with the accumulation of amyloid-beta (Aß) plaques...
