Harnessing immune cells in the brain to ward off Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative diseases – Neuroscience News

Summary: Researchers have identified a protein that could be harnessed to help microglia in the brain ward off Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative diseases. Source: The conversation Many neurodegenerative diseases, or conditions resulting from the loss of function or death of brain cells, remain largely incurable. Most available treatments target only one of the multiple …

USF students use AI to detect Alzheimer's disease

USF students use AI to detect Alzheimer’s disease

Siegrid Pregartner and Laura Borgerding are quick to note that they are PhD students in non-traditional pharmacology; Pregartner is an Army veteran and mother of two, while Borgerding is a former college professor. The two also recently launched a startup, Janus AI, and designed an AI tool that helps in the early detection of Alzheimer’s …

Machine Learning Identifies Most Accurate Time Frames to Predict Alzheimer's Disease Progression

Machine Learning Identifies Most Accurate Time Frames to Predict Alzheimer’s Disease Progression

A Cornell-led collaboration used machine learning to identify the most accurate ways and timeframes to predict the course of Alzheimer’s disease in cognitively normal or mildly cognitively impaired people. Modeling has shown that it is easier and more accurate to predict future dementia decline in people with mild cognitive impairment than in cognitively normal or …
