Why Some People with Brain Markers of Alzheimer’s Have No Dementia

Why Some People with Brain Markers of Alzheimer’s Have No Dementia

A new study from The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston has uncovered why some people that have brain markers of Alzheimer’s never develop the classic dementia that others do. The study is now available in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease. Alzheimer’s disease, the most common form of dementia, affects more than 5 million Americans. People suffering from Alzheimer’s develop a buildup of two proteins that impair communications between nerve cells in the brain — plaques made of amyloid beta proteins and neurofibrillary tangles made of tau proteins.

Women’s Brains May Be the Most Vulnerable to Alzheimer’s

Women’s Brains May Be the Most Vulnerable to Alzheimer’s

Women’s brains might be more vulnerable to the degenerative effects of Alzheimer’s disease than men’s, causing them to decline in memory and cognitive function twice as fast, according to new research that could explain why women make up two-thirds of all diagnosed Alzheimer’s cases in the US.

The finding was presented this week at the 2015 Alzheimer’s Association International Conference (AAIC) in Washington, DC, with the team also noting that women tend to decline more dramatically than men in cognition, function, and brain size after they’ve been in surgery or under general anaesthesia.

What Causes ‘Brain Farts’ & What You Can Do About It

Scientists call it Tip-of-the-Tongue syndrome (or TOT), and it’s something that has been with us probably as long as we’ve had large vocabularies (and lived long enough to start forgetting parts of them). College-aged people tend to experience TOT a couple times a week, whereas by the time most people reach 65, they experience them at about twice that rate; even once a day is still considered normal.

Reinventing the Wheel, Just So the Greedy Can Patent & Profit from it: Focus on Alzheimer’s

I have recently read 2 articles, and received a plea for pledges, regarding Alzheimers. So, I began to reflect upon how, and question why, in the quest to blaze new trails on which to diagnose or fight a disease, our scientific and research programs often do not look at the tools around them and fashion those tools to do the job just as well.

Robin Williams: What He Could Not Bear to Face

Robin Williams was one of our most beloved, talented, and celebrated actors and, among other things, showed us how comedians could step out from behind their funny personae and tackle, successfully, dramatic and other roles. This helped to open doors to so many that came after him and is just one way that he touched lives so very deeply.
