A plant-based treatment for Alzheimer's disease?
Researchers are constantly looking for new ways to treat Alzheimer's disease. Can Dioscin, a plant-based steroid, decrease the symptoms in mice?
Air pollution and brain development, mouse behavior gives insight
Air pollution can have major detrimental effects on health. But, what happens to brain development if a mouse is only exposed in early life. Researchers from the University of Washington studied just that.
New method for early detection of Alzheimer's disease
The color x-maze can be used to pick up symptoms of Alzheimer's disease in AD-mice months before traditional cognitive tests.
How horse riding and gardening improve quality of life for people with dementia
Quality of life is an important aspect of dementia care. Horse riding and gardening may provide positive emotional experiences and even enhance daily functioning.
Part 2: How researchers use the Morris water maze to find treatments for AD
In this second part of a two-part mini series, we highlight two more studies on potential Alzheimer’s disease treatments that are investigated using a Morris water maze.

Using CatWalk XT to analyze variations in gait performance in adolescent mice
Rodents are the most common model organisms in biomedical research. Automated gait analysis provides a precise and objective means of analyzing behavioral and physiological changes in rodent models.
What is the Barnes maze? A dry-land environment for testing learning and memory
The Barnes maze is a behavioral paradigm for testing learning and memory in rodents models for autism spectrum disorder, Alzheimer’s disease and ageing. How does it compare to the Morris water maze?
