Blood vessels in older brains break down, possibly leading to Alzheimer’s

University of Southern California (USC) neuroscientists may have unlocked another puzzle to preventing risks that can lead to Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers at Keck Medicine of USC used high-resolution imaging of the living human brain to show for the first time that the brain’s protective blood barrier becomes leaky with age, starting at the hippocampus,… Blood vessels in older brains break down, possibly leading to Alzheimer’s   



USC neurogeneticists harness immune cells to clear Alzheimer’s-associated plaques

New research from scientists at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California (USC) shows that the body’s immune system may be able to clear the brain of toxic plaque build-up that is the hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease, reversing memory loss and brain cell damage.

The study, which appears in the… USC neurogeneticists harness immune cells to clear Alzheimer’s-associated plaques
