Regular, moderate exercise appears to prevent development of physical signs of Alzheimer’s

Related video Moderate exercise is not only good for memory as people age, it also appears to help prevent the development of physical signs of Alzheimer’s, known as biomarkers, in those who are at risk for the disease, according to research presented at the annual convention of the American Psychological Association. “Our research shows that, […]

Amyloid PET scan is not an effective method for measuring severity, progression of Alzheimer’s

Related video While the presence of beta-amyloid plaques in the brain may be a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease, giving patients an amyloid PET scan is not an effective method for measuring their cognitive function, according to a new study from researchers in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and Thomas Jefferson […]

Alzheimer’s: Researchers create model to predict decline

Related video Using meta learning to predict decline Researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have developed a machine-learning model that could predict the rate of Alzheimer’s-related cognitive decline for up to 2 years in the future. MIT researchers have developed a machine-learning model that they say could accurately predict cognitive decline. Alzheimer’s disease affects […]

Scientists study how mobile phones can be used to fight Alzheimer’s disease

Related video Future treatments for age-related dementia could involve mobile phone frequency electromagnetic fields, researchers at Nazarbayev University and the National Laboratory Astana investigate. The scientists are studying how radiofrequency electromagnetic fields could be used in Alzheimer’s disease therapy, selecting a frequency of 918 MHz because it’s commonly used in mobile phones. Alzheimer’s disease, the […]

Research findings could help identify Alzheimer’s patients who will benefit from exercise

Related video A novel study has discovered metabolites that predict which Alzheimer’s patients are likely to see their symptoms improve with exercise therapy. These findings were unveiled today at the 71st AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo, and could be used to develop a blood test to guide Alzheimer’s treatment. In the U.S., […]
