A negative anti-amyloid drug trial results show that crenezumab is not superior to placebo for genetically high-risk Alzheimer’s patients

Top-line study results were released earlier this year. However, the researchers presented additional findings and perspectives at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference 2022. The investigational anti-amyloid monoclonal antibody crenezumab (Genentech) is not superior to a placebo for change in cognition, brain imaging, or biomarker outcomes in individuals who are at genetically high risk for Alzheimer’s disease (AD), […]

What effect do parents’ cognitive and non-cognitive skills have on their children’s education?

According to a recent study, parents’ genes that are connected to both cognitive and non-cognitive talents have an impact on their child’s educational performance.

The human brain is not built to stay up past midnight

The researchers looked at empirical evidence from earlier studies on sleep and its impacts on cognition and functioning. Scientists claim that the human body and mind behave in a certain way at specific times of the day and follow a circadian clock. A new hypothesis was presented this year in Frontiers in Network Physiology, which […]

Stretching may be as effective as aerobics in slowing down cognitive decline

According to recent research, stretching, balancing, and range-of-motion activities can reduce mild cognitive loss just as effectively as aerobic exercise. Regular stretching, balance, and range-of-motion exercises can help reduce mild cognitive loss almost as effectively as cardiovascular exercise. Although it might seem improbable, recent research indicates that it is scientific. On August 2, scientists revealed […]

Certain kinds of stress might be advantageous for brain function
