Studies reported at AAIC 2019 have demonstrated the links between lifestyle factors and dementia; this information could provide new insight into the best ways to alleviate the likelihood of developing the disease.
A ‘mini-brain’ model for studying Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease has been developed, which should allow researchers to study the disease in greater detail than in rodent and nonhuman primate models.
Researchers have revealed that treatment with magnetic therapy could reverse symptoms of mild traumatic brain injury in rodents, potentially leading to novel treatment methods for individuals with concussion in the future.
Researchers have reported that individuals undergoing CAR T-cell therapy for blood cancers are at risk of neurological side effects; categorizing and understanding these side effects could be important in future diagnosis and treatment.
Researchers have developed FRW, a peptide that can bind to blood vessels without binding to other organs; this could lead to novel imaging techniques for neurodegenerative diseases.
Researchers have identified a cause of dementia with similar symptoms to Alzheimer’s disease; this development could improve diagnosis and treatment of dementia.
Researchers have developed a device that utilizes brain activity to control a virtual vocal tract; this could enhance the communication of individuals who have lost the ability to speak.
Researchers have demonstrated that cerebral organoids grown at the air–liquid interface are able to generate nerve tracts and stimulate muscle output; these could be used to improve understanding of neurological diseases such as dementia.
Researchers have revealed that a stroke could alter an individual’s microbiome even up to 1 month after it occurs; this has emphasized the importance of incorporating gut health in patient recovery and treatment.
