A blood test can accurately detect brain damage in people with Alzheimer's before they show memory loss, confusion, or cognitive impairment, say researchers.
Researchers adapted a diagnostic test originally developed for prion diseases like mad cow disease to detect abnormal clusters of tau protein in the brain.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans could one day be used to predict whether older adults will develop dementia, suggests a small study.
Results of two studies suggest that an imaging procedure called optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) can detect early signs of Alzheimer’s disease.
In an international study, researchers used a new brain imaging method to detect tau protein deposits in the brain that are unique to Alzheimer's disease.
People with Alzheimer’s markers who don't develop dementia have a unique synaptic protein signature that enables them to maintain cognitive function.
If you think you may have mild cognitive impairment, but tests show otherwise, you may want to ask for further screening.
