Results of the study using deep brain stimulation, a therapy already used in some patients with Parkinson’s disease and depression,… Deep brain stimulation may hold promise for mild Alzheimer’s disease   



Study finds that sleep apnea and Alzheimer’s are linked

A new study looking at sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) and markers for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) risk in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and neuroimaging adds to the growing body of research linking the two.
