Alzheimer's falls 11% for every year spent in education
Researchers from Cambridge University found that the longer someone spends in school and university, the lower their risk of developing the condition.
We aimed to identify the best form of cognitive therapy among 3 main cognitive interventions of Alzheimer's disease (AD) including cognitive training (CT), cognitive stimulation (CS), and cognitive rehabilitation (CR).
Losing one’s memories, and therefore one’s identity, must be a terrifying experience. With a global estimate of almost 50 million people living with dementia, predicted to rise to more than 130 million by 2050, the burden of Alzheimer&rsq...

METHODS: In this multicentre study, we included a total of 333 patients with DLB, 352 patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD), and 233 normal controls and used medial temporal lobe atrophy, posterior at...
DISCUSSION: Exploration of measures in the eye may provide surrogate indices of microvascular lesions relevant to dementia. PMID: 30439332 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
In conclusion, Cur loaded Se-PLGA nanoformulation has been demonstrated that valued delivery system for the targeted delivery and effective way to treat AD.Graphical abstract
UCLA biologists have discovered how head injuries adversely affect individual cells and genes that can lead to serious brain disorders. The life scientists provide the first cell “atlas” of the hippocampus — the part of the brain that helps regulate learning and memory — when it is affected by traumatic brain injury. The team also proposes gene candidates for treating brain disease s associated with traumatic brain injury, such as Alzheimer’s disease and post-traumatic stress disorder.The researchers studied more than 6,000 cells in 15 hippocampal cell types — the first study of in...
