Abstract

ABSTRACTTau deposits in Alzheimer's disease and corticobasal syndrome have been reported using 18F-THK-5351 positron emission tomography (PET). To our knowledge, our study is the first to demonstrate tau deposits in patients with frontotemporal lobe degeneration (FTLD), using 18F-THK-53...read more

Tau Aggregation: Genomics

Tau Aggregation is an important characteristic in some neurodegenerative disorders, including Alzheimer’s Disease. Discover the latest research using genomics to understand Tau Aggregation.

Neuroimaging

Neuroimaging is a useful tool for studying brain function as well as for diagnosis of diseases and injuries to the brain. Follow this feed to stay up to date.

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.

Corticobasal Degeneration

Corticobasal Degeneration (CBD)is a rare, neurodegenerative disease of the cerebral cortex and the basal ganglia, characterized by movement disorders. Discover the latest research on CBD here.

Positron Emission Tomography: Brain (MDS)

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.

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.

Corticobasal Dementia (MDS)

Corticobasal degeneration is a rare progressive neurological disorder characterized by cell loss and deterioration in the cerebral cortex and basal ganglia. Symptoms include muscle rigidity and apraxia. Here is the latest on corticobasal dementia.

Alzheimer's disease is a chronic neurodegenerative disease. This feed focuses on the underlying role of Tau proteins and TAR DNA-binding protein 43, as well as other genetic factors, in Alzheimer's.

Tauopathies

Tauopathies are neurodegenerative disorders caused due to misfolding and aggregation of the tau protein in neurofibrillary tangles in the brain. Discover the latest research on tauopathies here.

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.

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.

Parkinsonian Syndromes (MDS)

Parkinsonian Syndromes include Parkinson disease, progressive supranuclear palsy, multiple system atrophy, corticobasal degeneration, and vascular Parkinsonism. Parkinsonian Syndromes may be caused by a brain disease or a toxin/drug. Each disease has its own specific treatment regimen. Here is the latest research on Parkinsonian Syndromes.

Alzheimer's Disease: Neuroimaging

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a chronic neurodegenerative disease. Here is the latest research on neuroimaging modalities, including magnetic resonance imaging and positron emission tomography, in AD.

RNA & Tau in Frontotemporal Dementia

Tau mutations in frontotemporal dementia and parkinsonism linked to chromosome 17 (ftdp-17) are associated with changes in alternative RNA splicing. Here is the latest research on RNA & Tau in Frontotemporal Dementia.
