A new study suggests that exposure to large amounts of air pollution may be associated with a 40% heightened risk of dementia. The study, conducted in London, adds to a growing body of evidence that there could be a link between dirty air and dementia diagnoses.

Authors: Rana AQ, Qureshi ARM, Haris A, Danish MA, Furqan MS, Shaikh O, Sarfraz Z, Rana R Abstract OBJECTIVE: Pain is an important non-motor symptom of Parkinson's disease (PD); however, it remains understudied. The purpose of previous studies on the relationship between PD and pain, has been to explore the cause, origin and types of pain. This case control study is designed for clinicians and rehabilitation specialists to effectively identify pain from the patient's point of view. Pain present in PD patients correlates with significant disruption to their daily lives, which was seen by analysing characteristics, f...

I'm pleased to note that the Methuselah Fund has closed its first fundraising effort after hitting the target amount, obtaining the support of many long-standing members of our community. The fund is a mixed for-profit/non-profit vehicle that is intended to expand the investment efforts undertaken by the Methuselah Foundation in past years, helping promising lines of rejuvenation research to make the leap from laboratory to commercial development. At the present point in time there are few enough rejuvenation focused companies that doing this well requires extensive connections within the research community, and a willingn...

Funding Opportunity RFA-MH-19-510 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The goal of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage applications for studies that will enhance knowledge of mechanisms associated with neuropsychiatric symptoms (NPS) in persons with Alzheimer's disease (AD) or Alzheimer's disease-related dementias (ADRD). The findings from such research are expected to advance mechanistic understanding of both biobehavioral and neurobiological pathways leading to NPS, and may provide clues to novel intervention targets for alleviating some of the burden associated with these symptoms, or su...
