Exciting research from a team at the Salk Institute is developing a new subclass of anti-aging compounds that are hoped to extend lifespan, reduce the molecular markers of aging, and slow the onset of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's. The work is on the cusp of commencing two human clinical trials investigating the efficacy of two compounds derived from natural sources... Con
A powerful new deep learning algorithm has been developed that can study PET scan images and effectively detect the onset of Alzheimer's disease up to six years earlier than current diagnostic methods. The research is part of a new wave of work using machine learning technology to identify subtle patterns in complex medical imaging data that human clinicians are unable to pick up... Contin
For years, scientists have suspected that drinking coffee helps lessen the chances of getting Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases. A new study indicates that this may indeed be the case, and that the darker the roast, the better it works...

One of the biggest challenges facing Alzheimer's and dementia researchers today is finding a way to clearly identify patients suffering from the very earliest stages of cognitive decline. New research is suggesting that artificial intelligence could be the key to accurately predicting those patients most at risk of developing Alzheimer's...

For several years, research into an effective treatment preventing cognitive decline associated with Alzheimer's disease has constantly failed in human clinical trials, but a new study from an international team of scientists may finally explain the reason behind these failures, and offer a solution in a drug currently used to treat stroke...

New research may have finally homed in on the reason why some people are found to have build-ups of toxic Alzheimer's proteins in their brains without subsequent cognitive decline, and the results could lead to a whole new way to battle this devastating disease...

A new study has found an interesting correlation between several degenerative eye diseases and the onset of Alzheimer's disease. No mechanism explaining the connection has been proposed at this stage but it is thought these eye conditions may help physicians identify patients at risk of developing Alzheimer's at a stage before major symptoms appear...

Scientists have presented new research pointing to the liver as a potential culprit in the onset of Alzheimer's disease. Presented at the Alzheimer's Association International Conference the research suggests that a compound produced in the liver can confer neurocognitive protections and when the liver cannot effectively produce those compounds then cognitive deficits can result in the bra
Around two-thirds of people suffering from Alzheimer's disease are women but there has been a surprising lack of research into what could be causing such a stark sex-specific difference in the disease. Several new studies into reproductive history and dementia risk in women have now revealed contradictory results, suggesting pregnancy may have some kind of effect on dementia risk later in
