(Salk Institute) A drug candidate developed by Salk researchers, and previously shown to slow aging in brain cells, successfully reversed memory loss in a mouse model of inherited Alzheimer's disease. The new research, published online in July 2020 in the journal Redox Biology, also revealed that the drug, CMS121, works by changing how brain cells metabolize fatty molecules known as lipids.

In this study, we examined the effects of oxytocin on the Aβ-induced impairment of synaptic plasticity in mice. To investigate the effect of oxytocin on synaptic plasticity, we prepared acute hippocampal slices for extracellular recording and assessed long-term potentiation (LTP) with perfusion of the Aβ active fragment (Aβ25-35) in the absence and presence of oxytocin. We found that oxytocin reversed the impairment of LTP induced by Aβ25-35 perfusion in the mouse hippocampus. These effects were blocked by pretreatment with the selective oxytocin receptor antagonist L-368,899. Furthermore, the tr...

Abstract Alzheimer's disease (AD) is characterized by irreversible and progressive memory loss and has no effective treatment. Recently, many small molecule nature products have been identified with neuroprotective functions and shown beneficial effects to AD patients. In the current study, we thus performed a small scale screening to determine the protective effects of natural compounds on streptozotocin (STZ)-induced neurotoxicity and Alzheimer's disease (AD). We found that a lead flavonoid compound, isoquercitrin (ISO) display the most effective anti-cytotoxic activities via inhibiting STZ-induced apoptosis, mi...

(IOS Press) Affirmativ Health sought to determine whether a comprehensive and personalized program, designed to mitigate risk factors of Alzheimer's disease could improve cognitive and metabolic function in individuals experiencing cognitive decline. Findings provided evidence that this approach can improve risk factor scores and stabilize cognitive function.

This week’s Psychology Around the Net takes a look at what causes revenge bedtime procrastination (a phenomenon I’m way too familiar with), the psychological toll of rude emails, why “I did by best” is a sorry (pun intended) excuse, and more. Stay well, friends! Don’t Fall Into the Trap of ‘Revenge Bedtime Procrastination’: Ever find yourself staying up late at night, even if you spent the entire day ticking item after item off your to-do list, even if there isn’t really anything else you need to do, and even if all your body wants to do is sleep? It’s called revenge b...

(University of California - Irvine) Patients with Alzheimer's disease frequently suffer from spatial memory loss, such as no recognition of where they are, and forgetting where they put their belongings. They often show a wandering symptom, which is also a feature of spatial memory impairment. Until now, the brain network mechanism that causes spatial memory impairment had been unclear.

Dementia is a syndrome and an umbrella term that encompasses Alzheimer, Parkinson and autism diseases. These diseases are by far the most common cause of dementia; therefore this investigation will chiefly include these disorders, with a limited discussion of few other disorders related to dementia. Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is characterized by the accumulation of cerebral β-amyloid plaques, tau proteins and memory loss; Parkinson by the deterioration of brain cells which regulate the movement of body parts and produce dopamine; and autism by abnormalities of social disorder and difficulty in communicating and fo...
