Amyloid structure linked to different types of Alzheimer’s disease

Memory Care

Cutting edge imaging shows that the amyloid fibers in plaques, a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease, have different molecular structures. NIA-supported research published in Science shows new, high-resolution images of the molecular pieces, called filaments, which make up amyloid plaques in different types of Alzheimer’s and in other degenerative brain conditions. Amyloid plaques form in the brains of… Continue reading Amyloid structure linked to different types of Alzheimer’s disease

Loss of smell linked to Alzheimer’s cognitive impairment and biomarkers

Decline in sense of smell is connected to faster buildup of Alzheimer’s disease-related pathology seen in brain scans, according to new research focused on older adults who live outside of nursing homes. The findings provide additional evidence that loss of smell (known as anosmia) is a key early sign of Alzheimer’s-related cognitive impairment and the… Continue reading Loss of smell linked to Alzheimer’s cognitive impairment and biomarkers
