Environmental change, and a growing and more connected population will promote vector-borne disease risk further. In this opinion piece, the authors discuss the role of climate modeling in disease prediction and epidemiology.
Journal Watch: Protective factors differentially affect amyloid pathology and Alzheimer’s disease-pattern neurodegeneration
Recent research led by Vemuri et al. indicates that a variety of risk factors influencing amyloid deposition are distinct from Alzheimer’s disease-pattern neurodegeneration.
New study demonstrates how the enzyme, ACSS2, contributes to brain tumor growth in environments scarce of oxygen and nutrients.
David Howett reviews a recent Lancet article that indicated that proximity to heavy traffic is associated with a higher incidence of dementia.
Take a look at our infographic – we explore our current knowledge of the interactions between alcohol and epigenetic mechanisms, and take a look at the latest research and drug targets.
The effects of microgravity on CSF could be responsible for the visual impairment intracranial pressure often seen in long-duration astronauts.
Can we identify meaningful epigenetic effects on human brain function and related risk for mental illness?
The authors briefly consider the challenges of linking environmental risk to mechanisms of psychopathology and possible therapeutic targets and discuss the potential avenues for moving forward through the lens of their ongoing work.
Research demonstrates both neuroinflammation and neuronal damage in rodents, as well as associated deficits in learning and memory.
This review covers the current state of genetic knowledge in vascular cognitive impairment from a pathophysiological view and discusses possible strategies for future research.
