Researchers have identified four genes that are associated with decreasing size of the hippocampus, a finding that may have impacts with studying Alzheimer's disease. The hippocampus is one of the brains regions involved with short and long-term memory processes.  It is also one of the first regions of the brain to exhibit damage from Alzheimer's disease. A team of over 200 scientists from 100 institutions around the world collaborated to map the human genes that boost or sabotage...

Iron is a popular topic in health news. Doctors prescribe it for medical reasons, and it's available over the counter as a dietary supplement. And while it's known that too little iron can result in cognitive problems, it's also known that too much promotes neurodegenerative diseases. Now, researchers at UCLA have found that in addition to causing cognitive problems, a lack of iron early in life can affect the brain's physical structure as well. UCLA neurology professor Paul Thompson...

What if you were told you carried a gene that increases your risk for Alzheimer's disease? And what if you were told this gene starts to do its damage not when you're old but when you're young? Brace yourself. Scientists know there is a strong genetic component to the development of late-onset Alzheimer's. In 1993, researchers discovered a gene known as ApoE4 "” carried by about a quarter of us "” that triples the risk for getting Alzheimer's. In 2009, three more risky genes were...
