High-Resolution Brain Imaging Provides Clues About Memory Loss in Older Adults

University of California, Irvine

As we get older, it’s not uncommon to experience “senior moments,” in which we forget where we parked our car or call our children by the wrong names. And we may wonder: Are these memory lapses a normal part of aging, or do they signal the early stages of a severe disorder such as Alzheimer’s disease? Currently, there’s no good way to tell.

The Brain’s Immune System May Be Key to New Alzheimer’s Treatments

Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute

SBP researchers have revealed how TREM2, a receptor found on immune cells in the brain, interacts with toxic amyloid beta proteins to restore neurological function. The research suggests boosting TREM2 levels in the brain may prevent or reduce the severity of neurodegenerative disorders including Alzheimer’s disease.

“Epigenetic Landscape” is Protective in Normal Aging, Impaired in Alzheimer’s Disease

Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

Researchers profiled the epigenomic landscape of Alzheimer’s brains, specifically in one of the regions affected early in AD, the lateral temporal lobe. They compared these to both younger and elderly cognitively normal control subjects. The team described the genome-wide enrichment of a chemical modification of histone proteins that regulates the compaction of chromosomes in the nucleus. Changes along the genome in disease versus normal aging brains may signify places for future drug development.

Polygenic Risk Score May Identify Alzheimer’s Risk in Younger Populations

University of California San Diego Health

For the first time, an international team of scientists, led by researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine, have determined that an Alzheimer’s disease (AD) polygenic risk score can be used to correctly identify adults with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) who were only in their 50s. MCI is considered a precursor to AD.
