Easy Test to Find Out if You May Have Early Signs of Dementia or Alzheimer's

Douglas Scharre, director of the division of Cognitive Neurology at the The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, talks about a test you can take to determine if you may have the early signs of demential or Alzheimer's. He also talks about how to approach family members, or loved ones, who are experiencing dementia or Alzheimer's. Free Test: http://sagetest.osu.edu

Study Shows Brain Structures Make Some People Resilient to Alzheimer’s Disease

The size, shape and number of dendritic spines in the brain may play a major role in whether someone gets Alzheimer’s disease, according to new research from UAB. Findings showed healthy dendritic spines conveyed a protective effect against Alzheimer’s.

Clinical Study Aims to Identify Biomarkers for Alzheimer’s Disease

With $3.8 million in support from the National Institute on Aging, University of California, Irvine neurobiologists are working to identify the early indicators of dementia in older adults as disease-related brain plaques accumulate but before symptoms can be observed.
