Study finds genes associated with hippocampal atrophy

In a genome-wide association (GWA) study, researchers from Boston University Schools of Medicine (BUSM) and Public Health (BUSPH) have identified several genes which influence degeneration of the hippocampus, the part of the brain most associated with Alzheimer disease (AD). The study, which currently appears online as a Rapid Communication in the Annals of Neurology,… Study finds genes associated with hippocampal atrophy   



Research suggests anti-inflammatory protein may trigger plaque in Alzheimer’s disease

Inflammation has long been studied in Alzheimer’s, but in a counterintuitive finding reported in a new paper, University of Florida researchers have uncovered the mechanism by which anti-inflammatory processes may trigger the disease.

This anti-inflammatory process might actually trigger the build-up of sticky clumps of protein that form plaques in the brain. These plaques… Research suggests anti-inflammatory protein may trigger plaque in Alzheimer’s disease
