Gamma frequency entrainment attenuates amyloid load and modifies microglia : Nature : Nature Research

Changes in gamma oscillations (20–50 Hz) have been observed in several neurological disorders. However, the relationship between gamma oscillations and cellular pathologies is unclear. Here we show reduced, behaviourally driven gamma oscillations...

Complement Biomarkers as Predictors of Disease Progression in Alzheimer’s Disease - IOS Press

There is a critical unmet need for reliable markers of disease and disease course in mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and early Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The growing appreciation of the importance of inflammation in early AD has focussed attention o...

Bacterial Infection Increases the Risk of Alzheimer’s Disease: An Evidence-Based Assessment - IOS Press

Background: The possibility of an infectious etiology for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) has been repeatedly postulated over the past three decades, with the roles of both viruses and bacteria having been investigated. Chlamydophila (formerly Chlamydia)...
