Heart Disease And Brain Blood Flow Regulation: Prelude To Dementia

The brain regulates changes in its own blood flow depending on how active its cells (neurons) are, by a mechanism called neurovascular coupling. When neurons become active, they send messages to nearby blood vessels causing them to dilate and bring in more blood. This increased... click to read more

Why Women Are Predisposed to Alzheimer’s Disease

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a brain disorder that progressively damages memory and thinking capabilities, eventually leading to losing the ability to communicate and carry out the daily activities. The prevalence of AD is significantly higher in women compared to men; more than two thirds of... click to read more

Treating Alzheimer's disease with a known anticoagulant: insights from lab mice

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia and has been long described as a disease of neurons. Although this is true (neurons are indeed sick and eventually die during AD), the events leading to this are numerous, and not all of them... click to read more

Family history and personal health behind memory’s impairments

Alzheimer's disease (or "AD"), the leading cause of dementia, is a progressive brain disorder that causes problems with memory and thinking. More than five million patients in the United States are currently diagnosed with AD. The goal of our research is to help each person... click to read more

Hunting new-born neurons in the human adult brain

The hippocampus is a brain region tightly related to memory processing. This region hosts one of the most peculiar phenomena that occurs in the adult mammalian brain: the continuous generation of new neurons during a lifetime. This phenomenon is named adult hippocampal neurogenesis and is... click to read more
