Researchers have discovered a way of traversing the blood-brain barrier, as well as a similar physiological obstacle in the eye, the retinal-blood barrier.

Sleep helps brain stay fit by clearing waste

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.

Hope for sufferers of Alzheimer`s disease now closer to reality

Possible cause of Alzheimer`s identified

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.

Indian scientists develop new technique to probe Alzheimer`s

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 eliminate plaque formation in Alzheimer`s

Scientists have discovered that eliminating an enzyme from mice with Alzheimer`s symptoms virtually eliminates a compound behind the development of plaques.

Scientists reverse loss of smell in early Alzheimer`s

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.
