Abstract

Percent whole brain volume change (PBVC) measured from serial MRI scans is widely accepted as a sensitive marker of disease progression in Alzheimer's disease (AD). However, the utility of PBVC in the differential diagnosis of dementia remains to be established. We compared PBVC in AD a...read more

Galectins & Alpha-Synuclein

Galectins proteins bind to sugar molecules and mediate the cellular response to endocytic vesicles. It is believed that some galectin proteins are involved in microglia activation induced by α-synuclein. Here is the latest research on galectins and alpha-synuclein.

T Cell Reactivity to Tau & Alpha-Synuclein in PD

Tau and alpha-synuclein are proteins that form aggregates which characterize various neurodegenerative disorders including Parkinson’s disease. This feed focuses on the reaction of T lymphocytes in response to tau and alpha-synuclein.

Brain Injury & Trauma

brain injury after impact to the head is due to both immediate mechanical effects and delayed responses of neural tissues.

Parkinson's Disease: Alpha-Synuclein

Alpha-synuclein is an integral component of Lewy bodies which are comprised of protein clumps and are a pathological hallmark of Parkinson’s disease. Here is the latest research.

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.

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.

Limbic System

The limbic system is comprised of several different parts of the brain involved in emotion, motivation, learning, and memory. Discover the latest research on the limbic system here.

Synucleinopathies

Synucleinopathies are neurodegenerative diseases characterized by accumulation of alpha-synuclein protein aggregates in neurons and glial cells. Discover the latest research on synucleinopathies here.

Alpha-Synuclein Aggregation

Alpha-synucleins are small proteins that are believed to restrict the mobility of synpatic vesicles and inhibit neurotransmitter release. Aggregation of these proteins have been linked to several types of neurodegenerative diseases including dementia with Lewy bodies and Parkinson's disease. Here is the latest research on α-synuclein aggregation.

Parkinson's Disease: Genetics

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder that affects movement. This feed focuses on genetic screening approaches and genetic predispositions in Parkinson’s disease.

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.

Neurocognition and Behaviour

This feed focuses on neurobehavioral manifestations, neurocognitive development, and cognition disorders. Here is the latest research.
