Like a janitor sweeping the halls after the lights go out, major changes occur in the brain during sleep to flush out waste and ward off disease, researchers said Thursday.
Researchers have defined a key mechanism behind Alzheimer`s progress, giving hope that a newly modified drug will be effective
A study led by researchers at the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience may hold a stunning breakthrough in the fight to treat Alzheimer`s disease.
Probing the mysteries of Alzheimer`s disease has been made easier by Indian scientists here who have developed a non-biological platform for assessing the efficacy of potential drugs and the way they work.
Scientists have discovered that eliminating an enzyme from mice with Alzheimer`s symptoms virtually eliminates a compound behind the development of plaques.
The loss of olfactory sense in Alzheimer`s early stages can now be reversed by removing a plaque-forming protein called amyloid beta which causes this condition.
