Some say I’m a broken record when it comes to preaching the health benefits of getting outside for a daily walk.

Is This the Reason Why so Many Drugs Have Failed to Beat Alzheimer’s Disease?

By |2020-11-16T13:58:45-05:00November 16th, 2020|Brain Science|

For more than a decade now researchers have tried to “cure” Alzheimer’s disease by clearing away beta amyloid plaques and tau proteins with drugs. But, as we’ve reported repeatedly in this newsletter, clinical trials on these drug therapies have shown that eliminating the proteins does nothing to improve Alzheimer’s-related memory loss. Now, researchers point to [...]

Researchers Say One Single Unifying Theory May Explain Alzheimer’s

Scientists have focused on amyloid beta plaques as the primary cause of Alzheimer’s disease for more than 25 years. Readers of this publication know I tossed the theory out a long time ago.

For years, a few brain researchers have been looking into a non-invasive method to diagnose Alzheimer’s disease before symptoms begin. They’re focused on the only part of the brain that’s visible without using complicated imaging techniques like X-rays or drilling open the skull. They’re looking at the retina, located at the back of the eye. [...]

All of us have experienced foggy thinking from a bad night’s sleep. But for some, chronic poor sleep can be a brain health disaster. What’s more, neuroscientists recently confirmed that millions of poor sleepers suffer from a common and often undiagnosed condition that dramatically increases your risk of Alzheimer’s disease. I’m talking about sleep apnea. [...]

High-Tech Headband Provides an Early Warning of Dementia
