Sleep Disorder Linked to Parkinsons Disease
Rapid eye movement sleep behavior disorder ( RBD ) occurs when people act out dreams. Diagnosis of RBD may increase the risk of developing Parkinson’s or mild cognitive impairment.
Early Markers for Alzheimer’s Disease
There is no cure for Alzheimer's disease, but new insights are being made into the nature of the disease regularly. Now, researchers believe they have taken another step forward in being able to detect early signs before memory loss symptoms appear.
Damaging Alzheimer's Proteins Further Studied
There is no cure for Alzheimer’s disease, but new and advanced research provides insights that could lead to more effective treatment and early recognition of the disease.
Making Alzheimer's a Better Memory
Could this dream come true? A medication that's currently approved for one disease could make Alzheimer's disease nothing more than a nightmarish memory.
Brain Drain Without Fish & Seeds

If you wake up frequently throughout the night you could be at greater risk of memory loss later on, new research suggests.
Treating Dementia Differently
Comorbidity within disease can cause a variety of issues in terms of symptoms and treatment, and a new study looks into its effects on patients with Down's syndrome.
Marker Identifies Dementia Type
Symptoms of different types of dementia are similar, which can make it tough to give patients an accurate diagnosis. A marker that detects brain plaques can help doctors tell them apart.
Low BMI May Contribute to Alzheimer's
Maintaining a weight that is overly thin can contribute to health problems in much the same way that being obese can. More recently a low body mass index has also been linked to early stages of Alzheimer's disease.
Boosting Memory in Alzheimer's Patients
Alzheimer's disease patients can have trouble remembering basics from the faces of loved ones to where they put something down. A medical food that has showed promise in trials could help with a memory boost.
