Rats doing exercise
Recent research has shown that rats induced with Alzheimer’s disease suffered less from the effects of the disease when subjected to exercise.
Brown mouse with outstretched tail
As a potential Alzheimer medicine, betaine was tested on an AD animal model in a novel object recognition test. Using video tracking, scientists studied the influence of betaine and betaine transporter on mouse memory.
Researching learning and memory
Scientists have found out that a low dose of the tranquilizer diazepam reduces the breakdown of neurons, seen in the development of Alzheimer’s disease.
Research in the brain sciences
During the annual Brain Awareness Week, international attention focuses on the brain to increase public awareness of the progress and benefits of brain research.
Radial Arm Maze
The radial arm maze is an apparatus consisting of a circular center compartment from which 8 equally spaced «arms» extend. Researchers use it to measure two forms of memory known as “reference memory” and “working memory.”
Alzheimer's research
Experts estimate that by 2050, 100 million people will have Alzheimer’s disease (AD), which is a shockingly large number. Learn more about the research that has been done in order to find a cure.
