Evolutionary Biologist Receives Award to Study the Regenerative Powers of the Shrew

Stony Brook University

Stony Brook University's Liliana Dávalos, PhD, is studying the phenomenal capabilities of the shrew, which shrinks up to 20 percent during winter months without hibernating. The research may shed light on the processes of neurological degeneration and regeneration in mammals.

Novel Tool Gauges Rural, Older Adults’ Knowledge of Alzheimer’s

Florida Atlantic University

Nursing researchers have developed a novel tool called the “Basic Knowledge of Alzheimer’s Disease,” to measure and assess Alzheimer’s knowledge in rural and underserved communities, in a way that matches their socioeconomic, educational and cultural needs. They put the survey to a test at senior centers in the Florida Glades and Appalachian Virginia, West Virginia, Alabama and North Carolina.

Could Eating Garlic Reduce Aging-Related Memory Problems?

Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB)

Consuming garlic helps counteract age-related changes in gut bacteria associated with memory problems, according to a new study conducted with mice. The benefit comes from allyl sulfide, a compound in garlic known for its health benefits.

Study: Protein Key to Charcot-Marie-Tooth, Other Nerve Diseases


A new study provides critical insight into a little-known, yet relatively common, inherited neurological condition called Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease. The findings point to a pathway to possible treatments for this disease and better understanding of other neurodegenerative disorders, including Alzheimer's disease, that affect millions.

Detecting Eye and Brain Disease Earlier

University of Illinois at Chicago

The eyes may be the window to the soul, but to scientists, they are also the window to the brain. In particular, the retina, a delicate light-sensing neural network with specialized cells at the back of the eyeball, is linked directly to the brain via the optic nerve and is considered by some to be part of the brain itself. Now, researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago are developing imaging techniques that will allow them to study minute changes in the retina that indicate the early stages of brain diseases like Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.

3D-printed transparent skull provides a window to the brain

University of Minnesota College of Science and Engineering

Researchers at the University of Minnesota have developed a unique 3D-printed transparent skull implant for mice that provides an opportunity to watch activity of the entire brain surface in real time. The device allows fundamental brain research that could provide new insight for human brain conditions such as concussions, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.

A "Low Dose Aspirin" for Dementia? Drug Ready for First in-Human Testing

University of Kentucky

Alzheimer's disease wreaks emotional havoc on patients, who are robbed of their memories, their dignity, and their lives. To date, there have been very few successes in the pursuit of a treatment. But one drug that looks at AD from a different angle is now ready for its first round of testing in humans.
