What’s the secret to aging well? Researchers have answered it — on a cellular level.
Scientists have suggested a potential link between iron in our cells and the rare gene mutations that cause Alzheimer’s disease, which could provide new avenues for future research.
Childhood experience of parental cancer is linked to poorer school grades, educational attainment, and subsequent earning power as a young adult, suggests a data linkage study of more than one million Danes.
A new study has uncovered why some people that have brain markers of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) never develop the classic dementia that others do. The results showed that resilient individuals had a unique synaptic protein signature that set them apart from both demented AD patients and normal subjects with no AD pathology.
People are falling into a trap of greater inactivity during middle age, according to new research.
Magnetic stimulation of the lower spinal cord through the skin enabled five men with spinal-cord injuries to recover significant urination control for up to two weeks. The new approach could enhance patients’ quality of life by increasing independence and reducing reliance on a catheter to empty the bladder.
Falls are not just a problem of advanced age, according to researchers, who have identified a sharp increase in falls after the age of 40, particularly in women.
