Alzheimer’s breakthrough: Vaccine developed by Australian and US researchers may reverse dementia and Alzheimer’s
Experts at Adelaide’s Flinders University have made an Alzheimer’s breakthrough that may result in world’s first dementia vaccine. Developed by Australian and US scientists, this vaccine may not only prevent but also reverse early stages of Alzheimer’s, the most common form of dementia.
Ice bucket challenge has led to a major ALS breakthrough
Contributions gained by ALS research groups from 2014's 'Ice Bucket Challenge' continue to lead to new, promising discoveries.
Experts excited by brain 'wonder-drug'
A drug for depression could stop all neurodegenerative diseases, including dementia, scientists hope.
Researchers are using stem cell tech to end neurological disorders
Researchers have constructed a laboratory model for a unique neurological disorder by transforming patients' own cells using stem cell technology.
Could this drug help the brain recover after a stroke?
Los Angeles Times
New research offers the prospect of limiting a stroke’s long-term damage with a drug that enhances the brain’s ability to rewire itself and promote recovery in the weeks and months after injury.
Alzheimer's disease damage completely erased in human cells by changing structure of one protein
This finding is an important breakthrough in Alzheimer's research.
‘Reprogrammed’ stem cells implanted into patient with Parkinson’s disease
A man in his 50s is the first of seven patients to receive the experimental therapy. A man in his 50s is the first of seven patients to receive the experimental therapy.
How virtual reality will transform medicine
Scientific American
Anxiety disorders, addiction, acute pain and stroke rehabilitation are just a few of the areas where VR therapy is already in use
I'm testing an experimental drug to see if it halts Alzheimer's
New Scientist
Steve Dominy led a landmark study that linked gum disease bacteria to Alzheimer's disease. He tells New Scientist why we should stop treating medicine and dentistry separately
Possible missing link in Alzheimer’s pathology identified
Scientific American
It may open the door to new treatments and explain why previous ones failed
Low dose lithium may stop Alzheimer’s disease in its tracks
McGill researchers' findings show that lithium may halt progression of Alzheimer's disease. There remains a controversy in scientific circles today regarding the value of lithium therapy in treating Alzheimer's disease. Much of this stems from the fact that because the information gathered to date
A drug that wakes the near dead
The New York Times
A surprising drug has brought a kind of consciousness to patients once considered vegetative — and changed the debate over pulling the plug.
Drug actually repairs nerve damage, giving scientists hope for future MS treatment
Good News Network
The drugs metformin and bexarotene have been shown in trials to repair the myelin sheath in paitents with multiple sclerosis, or MS.
In down syndrome mouse model, scientists reverse intellectual deficits with drugs
Using standard animal model of Down syndrome, scientists were able to correct the learning and memory deficits associated with the condition with drugs that target the body’s response to cellular stresses.
DNA-repairing enzyme reverses age-related cognitive decline
New Atlas
We lose the ability to repair DNA damage as we age. But now a new study from MIT has found that reactivating a certain enzyme improves repair of DNA damage in neurons, which helps Alzheimer’s patients and others with cognitive decline.
A tiny area of the brain may enable consciousness, says "Exhilarating" study
Scientists examine the "engine for consciousness."
First-ever artificial neuron could let us repair brain injuries with silicon
Singularity Hub
It’s been hard to accurately replicate the behavior of neurons in silicon because the way they respond to stimuli is non-linear.
