NEWS FROM THE FIELD


Researchers slow development of Alzheimer's cell killing plaques
Neuroscience News
University of Michigan researchers have learned how to fix a cellular structure called the Golgi that mysteriously becomes fragmented in all Alzheimer's patients and appears to be a major cause of the disease. They say that understanding this mechanism helps decode amyloid plaque formation in the brains of Alzheimer's patients — plaques that kill cells and contribute to memory loss and other Alzheimer's symptoms.

Bloomberg
For clues to treatments for Parkinson's and Alzheimer's, scientists are looking at their morning cup of joe.

3-D changes in DNA may lead to a genetic form of Lou Gehrig's disease
National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke

The particular mutation, in the C9orf72 gene, is the most common cause for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and frontotemporal degeneration, the second most common type of dementia in people under 65.
