Anti-Epilepsy Drug Restores Normal Brain Activity in Mild Alzheimer’s Disease

In a recent feasibility study, BIDMC tested an anti-epileptic drug for its potential impact on the brain activity of patients with mild Alzheimer’s disease. The team documented changes in patients’ EEGs that suggest the drug could have a beneficial effect.

Leisure Activities Lower Blood Pressure in Alzheimer’s Caregivers

Going for a walk outside, reading, listening to music—these and other enjoyable activities can reduce blood pressure for elderly caregivers of spouses with Alzheimer’s disease, suggests a study in Psychosomatic Medicine: Journal of Biobehavioral Medicine, the official journal of the American Psychosomatic Society. The journal is published by Wolters Kluwer.

FAU Launches Unique Dementia Prevention Program and Center

Is it possible to prevent dementia from happening in the first place? That’s what a leading FAU neuroscientist plans to prove using an innovative approach that defies the idea that “one-size-fits-all” when it comes to battling Alzheimer’s disease, Lewy Body Dementia, Parkinson’s disease and other related disorders. Using a personalized approach and precision medicine to reduce risk, this center is one of only a handful of centers in the world that focuses on dementia prevention.

More Support for Amyloid Hypothesis in Alzheimer's: Protective APP Mutation Lowers Aβ in Blood

A new study shows that people with a protective Aβ mutation have less of the peptide in their blood all through their lives, likely explaining why they do not get Alzheimer's. It suggests ways to prevent the disease in the vast majority of people who don’t have the mutation.
