What changes in the brain are caused by Alzheimer's disease? How do these changes differ from those observed in the normal aging process? Researchers from the CNRS, the école pratique des hautes études and the University of Valencia explored these questions by analyzing over 4,000 MRI scans of healthy and diseased brains using the "volBrain" platform.
 
   Exploring pathophysiological factors that link sleep problems and Alzheimer's diseaseExploring pathophysiological factors that link sleep problems and Alzheimer's disease
 
A new article explores the pathophysiological factors that link sleep disturbances and Alzheimer's disease. Better understanding of this connection may lead to potential diagnostics and therapeutics for Alzheimer's disease and other neurodegenerative diseases and dementia. The article is published ahead of print in the Journal of Neurophysiology (JNP).

An international team of scientists at Indiana University School of Medicine, University of Kansas and the U.K. Medical Research Council have dismantled the belief that Alzheimer's disease and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy have identical pathology.
 
 Alzheimer's disease often detected late due to lack of screening finds report
 
Alzheimer's disease often detected late due to lack of screening finds reportAlzheimer’s disease and dementia is fast becoming an important presence. A new survey released as part of the Alzheimer's Association's 2019 Alzheimer's Disease Facts and Figures report has revealed that there is often a delay in seeking help for dementia and associated cognitive decline.
 
 
 Alzheimer’s and brain health could soon be detected using an eye exam
 
Alzheimer’s and brain health could soon be detected using an eye examSoon, an eye examination may be all that is needed to confirm a diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease, according to researchers at Duke's Health. Duke Eye Center recently recruited and studied the retinas of over 200 individuals to see if there were any differences between those with Alzheimer's and those without.
 
 
 Hip fractures may serve as first sign of undiagnosed Alzheimer’s disease
 
Hip fractures may serve as first sign of undiagnosed Alzheimer’s diseaseIn a study of older people with no clinical diagnosis or signs of dementia when hospitalized to repair hip fractures, Johns Hopkins researchers say they found biomarkers of Alzheimer’s disease in most of the patients’ spinal fluid samples.
