Alzheimer Disease
  Follow Topic   Edit Search

Alzheimer Disease (AD) is the most common neurodegenerative disorder in older individuals sixty years and older, typically characterized by memory problems and inability to independently perform activities of daily living. Common clinical presentations involve different degrees of memory impairment. Episodic memory for newly acquired information and declarative memory for facts and events are initially affected while memory of remote, procedural memory and motor learning are spared during early stages. With progression of the disease, language, visiospatial skills, abstract reasoning, and executive function deteriorate. Some individuals will also develop apraxia, alexia, and delusion. From the Washington Manual of Medical Therapeutics, 35e.

We examined the presence of causative and low frequency coding variants in the AD, FTD ...

Abstract: Only a subset of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) patients progress to develop a form of dementia. A prominent feature of Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a progressive decline in language. We investigated if subtle anomalies in EEG activity of MCI patients during a word comprehension task could provide insight into the likelihood of conversion to AD.

Abstract: Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a common neurodegenerative disorder and the leading cause of cognitive impairment. Due to insufficient understanding of the disease mechanisms, there are no efficient therapies for AD. Most studies have focused on neuronal cells, but astrocytes have also been suggested to contribute to AD pathology. We describe here the generation of functional astrocytes from induced pluripotent ...
