Neurological disorders are diseases that affect the brain, central and the autonomic nervous system. According to the University Of California San Francisco, there are more than 600 neurological disorders. Of the many neurological disorders, the most common neurodegenerative diseases among US population is Alzheimer's and Multiple sclerosis. The Multiple Sclerosis Foundation estimates that more than 400,000 people in the United...
  2. How Alzheimers Causes Dementia

    How Alzheimers Causes Dementia
    Dementia, one of the symptoms of Alzheimers, stems from the neurofibrillary tangles of which form during the development of the disease. The neurofibrillary tangles consist of tau proteins, abnormal clumps within the neurons, and amyloid beta plaques, which form outside the cell and are often accompanied with neuronal death. Both affect neurons that are involved in memory formation, desecrating these...

  9. The Role of E-64D in Amyloid Plaque Prevention

    The Role of E-64D in Amyloid Plaque Prevention
    Alzheimer's  disease is characterized by accumulation of a variety of amyloid beta (Aβ) peptides as oligomers (twisted tangles of protein) and amyloid plaques (abnormal clusters of protein fragments) in the brain. These are factors involved in neuronal loss and memory deficits over time. The neurotoxic Aβ peptides are created when enzymes cleave a large protein called amyloid precursor protein (APP...
  10. Exosome Biomarker for Alzheimer's Disease

    Alzheimer’s disease is a neurodegenerative disorder, involving memory loss which progressively worsens, eventually leading to death. Currently there is no cure and diagnosis is commonly based on a person’s family history or expensive and intrusive detection methods.
