[ad_1] Researchers recently published an article in The Lancet Neurology discussing the difficulties facing seizure detection in patients with epilepsy. Epilepsy is a neurological disorder that is characterised by short repetitive epileptic seizures. These seizures can be harmful to the individual depending on the circumstances in which they occur, such as a seizure while driving.

[ad_1] A recent study explored the effects of tai chi on mild cognitive impairment and the activities of daily living in older adults. Mild cognitive impairment is characterized by mild problems in cognitive abilities such as memory, thinking and reasoning skills. People with mild cognitive impairment may also have minor difficulties carrying out instrumental activities

[ad_1] Studies have shown that exercise can improve cognitive outcomes in healthy adults and those with cognitive impairment. Researchers investigated the effects of exercise on those with type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance, and impaired glucose tolerance. Type 2 diabetes is a chronic disease that is preceded by insulin resistance and impaired glucose tolerance that worsen

A recent study investigated whether pimavanserin, a treatment for Parkinson’s disease psychosis, could also treat Alzheimer’s disease psychosis. Of the approximate 45 million people worldwide suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, between 25-50% of these individuals will at some point also suffer from symptoms of psychosis, the most common being hallucinations and delusions. Psychosis is an impaired

In a recent study, researchers examined the effects of amobarbital and N-acetylcysteine on post-traumatic osteoarthritis in injured joints. Injury to load-bearing joints such as the knees or ankles can result in posttraumatic osteoarthritis (PTOA), a condition in which the shock-absorbing and friction-reducing joint cartilage breaks down over time. Evidence suggests that metabolic changes in cartilage-producing

Researchers attempt to identify a therapeutic target that encourages respiratory muscle relaxation to provide asthma relief. Asthma causes respiratory problems, which can manifest as wheezing and chest tightness. It is a common affliction that affects about 10% of the US population. There has been much research focused on discovering therapeutic targets for asthma relief, such

[ad_1] Lodato and colleagues test a long-standing hypothesis that neurodegeneration is linked to mutations in the DNA of neurons. Aging is typically associated with a swathe of degenerative diseases in humans, including neurodegeneration. Neurodegeneration involves the loss of the structure and functional capacity in neurons and may include the death of neurons. Conditions like Alzheimer’s

Our Reader Score [Total: 0 Average: 0] Researchers in the US determine whether an antibody drug, solanezumab, can slow cognitive decline in patients with mild dementia. Alzheimer’s disease is thought to arise from a buildup of amyloid-beta (Aβ) plaques and neurofibrillary tangles in the brain. Those with Alzheimer’s disease may also show signs of mild

Adults with diabetes could benefit from better treatment if the condition was categorized into five types, rather than just two. This is the conclusion of a new study published in The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology. Researchers say that diabetes should be categorized into five types, rather than two. The research was led by Prof. Leif
