Lipids are major players in Alzheimer’s disease

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common neurodegenerative disorder affecting over 36 million people worldwide. Alzheimer’s patients suffer from dementia and memory loss and go through a progressive, irreversible and eventually fatal loss of cognitive functions. When Alois

Resting state fMRI analysis using sparse dictionary learning in SPM framework

Brain always be active even people are in rest. In the resting period, it has been observed that particular groups of brain region are always co-activated. These regions are functionally connected each other and each group is

A possible new treatment for Alzheimer’s disease and stroke using nanoparticles

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and stroke are two neurological disorders that share the common feature of neuronal death. The peptide under investigation here is IRL-1620, which has been shown in previous studies to reverse neuronal death as well

Small or big, brain cells don’t like protein gunk that lead to diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Huntington’s

An interdisiciplinary study by scientists at Trinity College Dublin (TCD, Ireland) have answered a hotly debated question in the neurodegenerative diseases research area: “Which protein aggregate form is the primary pathogenic agent in neurodegenerative diseases – (i) the prefibrillar oligomeric

Alzheimer’s disease: SMILES to preserve wisdom

Simplified molecular input-line entry systems (SMILES) is informative representation of molecules. This representation gives possibility to compare molecules in their architecture and in their action. Molecules characterized by good pharmaceutical action can be modified in order to

The multiple faces of Alzheimer’s disease: it’s not only memory

When we think of Alzheimer’s, the first thing that comes to our mind is memory loss. Memory problems were, until recently, a core and mandatory criteria to diagnose Alzheimer’s disease. The word has spread through awareness programs

Human blood brain barriers malfunction in Alzheimer’s disease

While the ancient Greeks and Romans already associated old age with dementia, it was not until 1901 that the German psychiatrist Alois Alzheimer diagnosed the first case of Alzheimer’s disease in a fifty year old woman. Today,
