Could flashing light treat Alzheimer’s? Fresh approaches to treating the disease: VIDEO


























Alzheimer's disease is one of the biggest unanswered questions in medicine.

Five million Americans are currently estimated to have the mind-ravaging disease, a number expected to triple by 2050 without effective interventions. But the track record in drug development has been terrible: a success rate of less than 1 percent.

Improving memory with magnets























Researchers gave 17 individuals auditory memory tasks that required them to recognize a pattern of tones when it was reversed, while being recorded on MEG and EEG.

Discovery expands our understanding of how we remember sound

The ability to remember sounds, and manipulate them in our minds, is incredibly important to our daily lives -- without it we would not be able to understand a sentence, or do simple arithmetic. New research is shedding light on how sound memory works in the brain, and is even demonstrating a means to improve it.

The brain up close: Radical microscope reveals nerve synapses firing in breakthrough that could shed light on Alzheimer's and depression






























The closest view yet of multiple working synapses. Using a custom-built microscope, the scientists achieved the closest view yet of working nerve synapses - the junctions between neurons that dictate how they communicate. The image is color coded, where brighter yellow spots represent multiple vesicle releases at different synapses. This image was obtained following extensive simulation of vesicle release while using a fluorescent marker 

The closest image yet of working nerve synapses has been captured by researchers.

Are You at Risk for Alzheimer’s? New Genetic Test Could Provide Answer
































The ability to determine the risk of contracting any disease is powerful information to have for both patients and healthcare providers. For Alzheimer’s disease (AD), in which risk factors have been notoriously elusive, any potential insight into who may be at risk to develop the neurodegenerative disorder could help alleviate a significant amount of burden on the patient and family, as early preparations or even preventive steps could be taken.

Never before seen images of early stage Alzheimer's disease
































Images that predate the formation of toxic clumps of beta-amyloid, the protein believed to be at the root of Alzheimer’s disease, have now been captured by researchers.
Credit: Illustration: Per Uveal

Researchers at Lund University in Sweden have used the MAX IV synchrotron in Lund -- the strongest of its kind in the world -- to produce images that predate the formation of toxic clumps of beta-amyloid, the protein believed to be at the root of Alzheimer's disease. The unique images appear to contradict a previously unchallenged consensus. Instead of attempting to eliminate beta-amyloid, or so-called plaques, the researchers now suggest stabilizing the protein.

Scientists identify first sign of Alzheimer's disease: VIDEO


























Memory loss and cognitive decline are commonly thought to be the earliest signs of the neurodegenerative disorder Alzheimer's, but a new study has found declines in glucose levels in the brain come even sooner — before the first symptoms appear. Even better? The same team also believes they have figured out a way to stop these levels from falling in the first place, a finding that could potentially prevent Alzheimer's.
