Johns Hopkins researchers identify biomarkers in spinal fluid Johns Hopkins researchers say that by measuring levels of certain proteins in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), they can predict when people will develop the cognitive impairment associated with Alzheimer's disease years before the first symptoms of memory loss appear. Identifying such biomarkers could provide a long-sought tool to guide earlier use of potential drug treatments to prevent or halt the progression of Alzheimer's while...

Results presented at World Parkinson Congress Researchers at the University of Montreal and the Institut universitaire de gératrie de Montréal examined brain changes over 20 months in Parkinson's patients with and without mild cognitive impairment (MCI) at the early stages of the disease. Results showed that patients with MCI had significantly more cortical thinning and subcortical atrophy over time compared with patients without MCI, suggesting that early MCI in PD patients may indicate...

Nationwide study to help determine whether two research-tested strategies can work together to improve cognitive functioning in adults with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI}. Richmond, VA (PRWEB) September 25, 2013 Researchers at the University of Sydney, Australia, have announced the start of a large-scale study to investigate the effectiveness of combining two promising interventions in helping to combat age-related cognitive decline leading to dementia. Research suggests that the...

Patients suffering from early symptoms of Alzheimer's disease who were diagnosed sooner than usual using a brain imaging test received Alzheimer-specific medications earlier than those who did not have the brain imaging results available to their doctors or themselves. These patients also had significantly better clinical outcomes during the subsequent years they were clinically monitored, UCLA researchers have found for the first time. The Metabolic Cerebral Imaging in Incipient Dementia...

For years, scientists have attempted to understand how Alzheimer’s disease harms the brain before memory loss and dementia are clinically detectable. Most researchers think this preclinical stage, which can last a decade or more before symptoms appear, is the critical phase when the disease might be controlled or stopped, possibly preventing the failure of memory and thinking abilities in the first place. Important progress in this effort is reported in October in Lancet Neurology....

Cognitive Enhancers Not Effect Against Cognitive Impairment

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Memory and concentration-improving drugs do not improve cognition or brain function, and may actually cause adverse health effects in people with mild cognitive impairment, according to research in Monday’s edition of the Canadian Medical Association Journal. These medications, which are known as cognitive enhancers, were found to be ineffective in treating patients suffering from mild cognitive impairment, a condition marked by...


Word of the Day
tesla
  • The unit of magnetic flux density in the International System of Units, equal to the magnitude of the magnetic field vector necessary to produce a force of one newton on a charge of one coulomb moving perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic field vector with a velocity of one meter per second. It is equivalent to one weber per square meter.
This word is named for Nikola Tesla, the inventor, engineer, and futurist.
