Blood Test Detects Rate of Brain Cell Death from Alzheimer’s Up to 16 Years Before Signs of Dementia

Scientists at the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE), the Hertie Institute for Clinical Brain Research (HIH) and the University Hospital Tübingen now show that a protein found in the blood can be used to precisely monitor disease progression long before first clinical signs appear. When brain cells die, their remains can be detected in …

Recording memory patterns and feeding back can boost memory by up to 37% in Alzheimers patients

Scientists at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center and the University of Southern California (USC) have demonstrated the successful implementation of a prosthetic system that uses a person’s own memory patterns to facilitate the brain’s ability to encode and recall memory. Advanced Lifelogging seems needed to support memory boosting. Most Healthy early lifelogging adopters found it …
