Neuron Connections
Researchers have identified an important mechanism of neurodegeneration that may be useful in treating age-related diseases such as Alzheimer’s and dementia [1]. These neurons must die Age-related neurodegenerative diseases, including Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, have become more prevalent mostly because of the successes of modern medicine. Today, more people become old enough to fall prey to...
Blood vessels in the brain
Researchers publishing in Frontiers in Aging Neuroscience have discovered that blood pressure is directly linked to brain aging. BrainThe brain is perhaps the most important organ in the body. While many organs are critical to our survival, the brain contains the self. It is responsible for personality and consciousness and is what differentiates us most...
Brain anatomy
A study conducted in Sweden and published in Scientific Reports has outlined the relationship between aging and the metabolites present in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), which cushions and supports the brain and spine. A detailed, metabolic analysis The researchers extracted CSF from 41 people aged 20 to 74 who don't have neurological disorders. They investigated somewhat...
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...
Neurons
Cognitive decline and neurological aging may involve a peptide known as adropin, according to new research. The identification of this link offers a new perspective on the aging brain and points to novel potential therapies. A newly discovered metabolic neuropeptide The adropin protein is encoded by the Energy Homeostasis Associated (ENHO) gene, and as the...
Mouse Brain Internal
Researchers, publishing in the journal Aging, have discovered that a protein called hedgehog alleviates the tissue-specific, age-related inflammation of the microglia, the maintenance cells of the brain. The aging differences between tissue types To begin this research, the team first performed a gene expression analysis on four different types of murine macrophages: bone marrow-derived macrophages...
