Sleep Problems May Be Early Sign of Alzheimer’s

Poor sleep may be a sign that people who are otherwise healthy may be more at risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease later in life than people who do not have sleep problems, according to a study published in the July 5, 2017, online issue of Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology. Researchers have found a link between sleep disturbances and biological markers for Alzheimer’s disease found in the spinal fluid.

Neuroscientists Call for More Comprehensive View of How Brain Forms Memories

Neuroscientists from the University of Chicago argue that research on how memories form in the brain should consider activity of groups of brain cells working together, not just the connections between them

People with Parkinson’s Should Be Monitored for Melanoma, and Vice Versa, Mayo Study Finds

People with the movement disorder Parkinson’s disease have a much higher risk of the skin cancer melanoma, and vice versa, a Mayo Clinic study finds. While further research is needed into the connection, physicians treating one disease should be vigilant for signs of the other and counsel those patients about risk, the authors say. The findings are published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings.

What Causes Brain Freeze

An ice cream sundae can be the perfect treat to end a hot day. Or maybe a cold smoothie to start the day strong. No matter your choice of treat, these delicious cold foods—and especially beverages—can stop you in your tracks with a good ol’ case of sphenolopalatine ganglioneuralgia—or brain freeze.

Symptoms of PTSD can include irritability, isolation, agitation, jumpiness, nightmares, sleep disturbances and substance abuse. All of these can take a toll not just on the person with PTSD, but on their loved ones as well.
