Brain shrinkage linked to COVID-19 | Live Science

Brain shrinkage linked to COVID-19 By Nicoletta Lanese COVID-19 may shrink the brain’s gray matter, primarily in areas of the brain involved in smell and memory processing, a large study suggests. These distinct changes in brain structure crop up in both people who required hospitalization for COVID-19 and those who had less severe infections, according to theContinue reading “Brain shrinkage linked to COVID-19 | Live Science”

Blood Test Might Yield Early Warning of Alzheimer’s

TUESDAY, Jan. 22, 2019 (HealthDay News) Leaky blood vessels in the brain may be an early sign of Alzheimer’s disease, researchers say. They followed 161 older adults for five years and found that those with the most severe memory declines had the greatest leakage in their brain’s blood vessels, regardless of whether the Alzheimer’s-related proteinsContinue reading “Blood Test Might Yield Early Warning of Alzheimer’s”

Researchers Halt The Development Of Alzheimer’s Disease And Partially Reverse Its Effects

Researchers at the Cleveland Clinic’s Lerner Research Institute have demonstrated that gradual reduction of an enzyme that contributes to the development of Alzheimer’s Disease can halt the disease’s development and reverse some its effects. Their work was reported on February 14th in the Journal of Experimental Medicine.The buildup of beta-amyloid plaques in the brain isContinue reading “Researchers Halt The Development Of Alzheimer’s Disease And Partially Reverse Its Effects”

Researchers report novel complementary effects of estrogen treatment in multiple sclerosis

I’m on board as ridiculous as this all seems, it makes perfect sense to me. So, an increase inContinue reading “Researchers report novel complementary effects of estrogen treatment in multiple sclerosis”

Major cause of dementia discovered – high brain urea

An international team of scientists have confirmed the discovery of a major cause of dementia, with important implications for possible treatment and diagnosis. Professor Garth Cooper from The University of Manchester, who leads the Manchester team, says the build-up of urea in the brain to toxic levels can cause brain damage – and eventually dementia.Continue reading “Major cause of dementia discovered – high brain urea”
