Amyloid and Tau Spreading Pathways in the Brain, Correlated with Genetics

Posted by on Jul 24, 2017 in Brain Health Blog, More, News | 0 comments

The ability to employ advanced imaging technology to “see” both of the hallmark proteins of Alzheimer’s (amyloid and tau) in the living brain is a significant recent advance in the field. It may prove to be transformational not only in our understanding of the disease and its progression but also in its potential to accelerate drug discovery. According to Jorge Sepulcre, MD, PhD, of Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, understanding the “spreading”...

Inflammation Promoting Diet is Linked to Poorer Executive Cognitive Function and Smaller Gray Matter Brain Volume

Posted by on Jul 24, 2017 in Brain Health Blog, In the News, More, News | 0 comments

Building on solid evidence that eating well is brain healthy, researchers are beginning to explore mechanisms through which dietary mechanisms may influence cognitive status and dementia risk. Yian Gu, Ph.D., at Columbia University, New York, and colleagues examined whether an inflammation-related nutrient pattern (INP) was associated with cognitive function and structural MRI findings in the brain. Using data on 330 community-dwelling, non-demented elderly individuals (mean age 79.7), the investigators found that...
