Abstract

Cholinergic dysfunction appears to play a role in the cognitive impairment observed in Parkinson disease (PD) and Dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB). The occurrence of cholinergic dysfunction in the early stages of these conditions, however, has not been investigated. The objective of this...read more

Frontotemporal Dementia

Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) refers to disorders caused by progressive neuronal loss in the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain. Here is the latest research on FTD and FTD-associated disorders.

Positron Emission Tomography: Brain

Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is a type of imaging that allows visualization of the brain functioning. A radioactive tracer is injected into the bloodstream allowing the activity of the organ to be visualized. PET imaging for the brain is useful to see if there is disease or injury in the brain. Here is the latest research on PET and the brain.

Sleep Disorders

Sleep disorders affect a substantial number of people worldwide and may be increasing in prevalence. Sleep disorders are frequent and can have serious consequences on patients' health and quality of life. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to sleep disorders.

Formation of Synapses and Circuits

Synapses are crucial for the transmission of information within neural circuits. These specialized intercellular junctions are the basis for the formation of complex networks. Formation of these synapses involve numerous steps that are essential for transmission of information. Here is the latest research on formation of synapses and circuits.

Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson's Disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by loss of muscle control, including trembling of the limbs and impaired balance. Here is the latest research.

Lewy Body Disease

Lewy Body Disease, associated with abnormal deposits of proteins like alpha-synuclein in the brain, causes a decline in mental abilities. Here is the latest on this progressive neurological disorder.
