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.

But this latest study also poses an interesting question: Could AD in its “preclinical stages” also lead to SDB and explain the increased… Study finds that sleep apnea and Alzheimer’s are linked
