Amyloid imaging in atypical presentations of Alzheimer's disease

Current Neurology and Neuroscience Reports

Abstract

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is thought to progress in a fairly stereotyped manner, with episodic memory loss being the first and most salient domain of impairment, reflecting the early disease in structures supporting this function. However, there is considerable heterogeneity in the relat...read more

Memory: Long-Term

Memory refers to the encoding, storage, and retrieval of information. Here is the latest research on aspects that underlie long-term memory formation and loss.

Aphasia

Aphasia affects the ability to process language, including formulation and comprehension of language and speech, as well as the ability to read or write. Here is the latest research on aphasia.

Alzheimer's Disease: APP

Amyloid precursor protein proteolysis is critical for the development of Alzheimer's disease, a neurodegenerative disease associated with accumulation of amyloid plaques. Here is the latest research.

Alzheimer's Disease: Early Markers

Alzheimer's disease is a chronic neurodegenerative disease. This feed focuses on early markers, as well as environmental, pharmacological, and drug-response biomarkers associated with this disease.

Infantile Neuroaxonal Dystrophy

Infantile neuroaxonal dystrophy (INAD), also known as phospholipase associated neurodegeneration or PLAN, is a genetic neurodegenerative disorder. Symptoms can begin around 6 months to 2 years of age, and may include a loss of previously acquired skills, difficulty walking, crossed eyes and involuntary eye movements, and overactive reflexes. Follow the latest research on INAD here.

Alzheimer's Disease: Abeta

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a chronic neurodegenerative disease associated with accumulation of amyloid plaques, which are comprised of amyloid beta. Here is the latest research in this field.

Frontotemporal Lobar Degeneration

Frontotemporal lobar degeneration or frontotemporal dementia refers to a group of uncommon disorders that occur as a result of progressive nerve cell loss in the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain. Here is the latest research.
