As brain cells age, they lose their ability to perform basic functions, often leading to dementia and other neurodegenerative disorders. But what’s behind this decline, and can it be stopped? Two new studies out this week uncover links between genes and brain-cell functioning that could provide new targets for therapies aimed at neurodegenerative diseases.
New research reveals how a dysfunction in the brain's so-called self-digestion system leads to cell death in neurodegenerative disorders. The newly discovered mechanism may lead to new therapies for conditions such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease.
New research published in the European Heart Journal suggests that blood-thinning drugs such as warfarin may protect not only against stroke, but also against dementia in people who have atrial fibrillation.
