Alzheimer's Disease: Single-neuron Observations Mark Steps

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[26/04/2012] Studying a mouse model of Alzheimer's disease, neuroscientists at the Technische Universitaet Muenchen (TUM), Germany, have observed correlations between increases in both soluble and plaque-forming beta-amyloid – a protein implicated in the disease process – and dysfunctional developments on several levels: individual cortical neurons, neuronal circuits, sensory cognition, and behaviour.Alzheimer's Disease: Single-neuron Observations Mark Steps - Read more

[14/03/2012] Scientists have gained insight into why lithium salts are effective at treating bipolar disorder in what could lead to more targeted therapies with fewer side-effects.Bipolar Disorder: Body Clocks May Hold Key for Treatment - Read more

Neurodegenerative Disease: View on Causal Mechanism in ALS

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[01/03/2012] In a study Munich-based researchers refute a widely accepted hypothesis about a causative step in neurodegenerative conditions. These results deal specifically with animal models of human amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, aka Lou Gehrig's disease) but also raise questions for research on other neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's or Huntington's disease.Neurodegenerative Disease: View on Causal Mechanism in ALS - Read more

Facing Forgetfulness: Recognising the Early Stages of Alzheimer‘s Disease

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[01/02/2012] Diagnosing advanced Alzheimer‘s nowadays is no longer difficult. And yet, to detect the so-called “progressive neurodegenerative brain disease with memory loss as the leading symptom“ early on, basic diagnostic methods are not sufficient.

Diagnosis: Alzheimer’s damage occurs early

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[10/01/2012] The first changes in the brain of a person with Alzheimer’s disease can be observed as much as ten years in advance – ten years before the person in question has become so ill that he or she can be diagnosed with the disease. This is what a new study from Lund University in Sweden has found.Diagnosis: Alzheimer’s damage occurs early - Read more
