Identifying the optimal number of individual treatment sessions for those with cognitive decline associated with dementia is crucial for managing the neurodegenerative disease.
Cyclodextrin, an FDA-approved drug, reduced cholesterol accumulation from broken down brain cells and inflammation in animal models. The findings point to a potential new therapy to reduce dementia following a stroke.
A new artificial intelligence algorithm analyses MRI data to accurately predict the age of a brain.
Researchers discuss how to accommodate family members with dementia over the holidays to make Christmas a meaningful and joyous event for the entire family.
A newly developed self-assessment test of cognitive function can help detect early signs of dementia sooner than commonly used office-based cognitive tests.
Cataract surgery was associated with a 30% reduction in dementia risk for older adults, a new study reports.
Older people who experience elevated heart rates are at increased risk for developing dementia, researchers report.
A drug currently being tested in cancer clinical trials appears to prevent dysfunction in an immune cell signaling pathway associated with Alzheimer’s disease. Blocking the pathway could prevent Alzheimer’s from developing and slow the progression of s…
Amateur boxers, specifically those who boxed during their youth, are twice as likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease than those who didn’t.
The form in which isomers take can increase the risk of developing dementia, researchers report. Drugs in development to improve autophagy may help prevents Alzheimer’s from developing.
A new framework reveals Alzheimer’s disease is far more complex than previously believed. Rather than being a disease where the same causes produce the same outcomes, researchers found three different models for the disease, each with its own character…
Findings suggest people with moderate Alzheimer’s disease perform better at daily tasks when surrounded by their usual clutter.
People who drink between 4 – 6 cups of coffee or tea per day have a lower risk of stroke and dementia, researchers report. Drinking coffee alone, or in combination with tea, was associated with lower risk of post-stroke dementia.
People who consume a diet containing anti-inflammatory foods, including fruits, vegetables, and coffee, are less likely to develop dementia as they age, a new study reports.
Longer and higher exposure to estrogen were associated with larger gray matter volume in middle-aged women.
People who consumed fish as a regular part of their diet had a lower risk of vascular brain disease, a condition that can lead to stroke or dementia.
Researchers report improvement in mood, behaviors, and cognition in older adults with dementia, thanks to the aid of a robotic furry companion.
While a low-protein diet can accelerate neurodegeneration, consuming Amino LP7, a combination of essential amino acids, could slow the progression or inhibit the development of dementia.
Mirtazapine, an antidepressant commonly prescribed to treat dementia-associated agitation, is no more effective than a placebo and may increase mortality risks, researchers report.
