In the largest and most conclusive study of its kind, researchers have analysed blood samples to create a novel and non-invasive way of helping to diagnose Alzheimer's disease and distinguishing between different types of neurodegenerative disorders.

While unconscious during deep sleep, millions of neurons' activity travels across the cerebral cortex. This phenomenon, known as slow waves, is related to the consolidation of memory.

When trace elements rise to toxic levels, bad things happen. Patients suffering from Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease harbor significantly higher levels of zinc and iron in their brains than healthy patients.
 
 Protein research could pave way to potential treatments for neurodegenerative diseases
 
Protein research could pave way to potential treatments for neurodegenerative diseasesResearch carried out at the University of Kent has the potential to influence the future search for treatment of neurodegenerative diseases that are linked to a family of protein molecules known as 'amyloid'.
 
 
 New method to 'sneak' biological drugs into brain cells offers hope to cure neurological diseases
 
New method to 'sneak' biological drugs into brain cells offers hope to cure neurological diseasesThe treatment of brain diseases is on the verge of a breakthrough. Researchers from Aalborg University are developing a new method that 'smuggles' medicine past the brain's defense systems, giving hope that diseases such as Alzheimer's can one day be cured.
