Potatoes are good for you and can slash dementia risk

In a bizarre medical U-turn, scientists at the James Hutton Institute in Scotland who reviewed a host of evidence are pushing for potatoes to be reassessed for their 'clear' health benefits.

Authors: Fancourt D, Steptoe A, Cadar D Abstract SummaryTheories of cognitive reserve, disuse syndrome and stress have suggested that activities that are mentally engaging, enjoyable and socially interactive could be protective against the development of dementia. Using data from the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing, this study shows that for adults aged 50 and older visiting museums every few months or more was associated with a lower incidence rate of dementia over a 10-year follow-up period compared with less-frequent visiting. This association was independent of demographics, socioeconomic status, health-re...

Authors: Laforce R, Soucy JP, Sellami L, Dallaire-Théroux C, Brunet F, Bergeron D, Miller BL, Ossenkoppele R Abstract Molecular imaging techniques using 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose, amyloid tracers, and, more recently, tau ligands have taken dementia research by storm and undoubtedly improved our understanding of neurodegenerative diseases. The ability to image in vivo the pathological substrates of degenerative diseases and visualize their downstream impact has led to improved models of pathogenesis, better differential diagnosis of atypical conditions, as well as focused subject selection and monitoring of...

Publication date: Available online 22 July 2018Source: Molecular and Cellular NeuroscienceAuthor(s): Blanka R. Szulc, Stephen T. Hilton, Arnaud J. RuizAbstractWe have synthesized a novel small molecule based on the pyrrolidinone–containing core structure of clausenamide, which is a candidate anti–dementia drug. The synthetic route yielded multi–gram quantities of an isomeric racemate mixture in a short number of steps. When tested in hippocampal slices from young adult rats the compound enhanced AMPA receptor–mediated signalling at mossy fibre synapses, and potentiated inward currents evoked by loca...
