Memory Restoration In Alzheimer’s Patients

A new research has revealed the first of its kind success in treating Alzheimer's memory restoration in early Alzheimer's disease (AD) or its precursors. Exceptional progress has been noted in the outcomes of quantitative MRI and neuro-psychological testing. The tests were performed after the ten participating patients underwent a treatment involving a programmatic and personalized therapy. New technique The new technique was named metabolic enhancement for neuro-degeneration. The outc...

Extraordinary memory or poor memory.

“Apple. Table. Chair.” Remember those objects. The substance of memory prompts fascinating questions, conjectures and also quandaries. “For me, it’s how extraordinary our memory can be in some cases and how impossibly poor it can be in other cases,” said Dr. David E. Dr. Warren, an assistant professor in the Department of Neurological Sciences at the University of Nebraska Medical Center where he specializes the application of scientific findings to clinical treatm...

Research holds promise for Alzheimer’s diagnostic blood test

University of Otago researchers have discovered a promising new marker that could help diagnose Alzheimer's disease—and all that might be required is a simple blood test. The researchers have discovered that a small number of a large class of molecules called microRNAs—found in both the human brain and blood—are exceptionally good at detecting Alzheimer's disease. Before this work began, blood plasma microRNA had been shown to reflect various disease processes, and specific microRNAs were ...

What is Alzheimer’s Disease?

Alzheimer's disease is a type of dementia and also the most common cause of dementia.   Dementia refers to a number of symptoms that include loss of memory (especially short-term memory) as well as problems with the use of language.  Further symptoms include difficulties with thinking, problem-solving or language. The disease is caused by a build-up of proteins in the brain. ‘Plaques’ and nerve ‘tangles’ are formed and these impact on the connections between nerve cells in the brain, eventual...

Controversial New Push to Tie Microbes to Alzheimer’s Disease

A journal article says herpes virus and Lyme disease bacteria are behind the mind-robbing illness, but not all researchers are convinced. Scientists have long puzzled over the root causes of Alzheimer's disease, a devastating and typically fatal condition that currently denies more than five million Americans their cognition and memory. But in a provocative editorial soon to be published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, a cadre of scientists argue that the complex disease may have a surpr...
