Alzheimer’s Disease & Parkinsonism

Promising Research could Detect Alzheimer’s Disease Early

alzheimers diseaseAround 50 million people globally have developed Alzheimer’s disease and with the aging of population, several parts of the globe are facing the threat of severe memory loss and the related behavioral symptoms, causing concerns of public health issues across societies. With a simple reading test that the scientists have developed recently, it is possible to detect whether or not a person is at Alzheimer’s risk. Delay in processing written words and sentences are a warning that they may develop Alzheimer’s within the next 3 years to come. A team of researchers at the University of Birmingham have developed a device that could map the way the brain responds if the individuals are exposed to words on a computer screen. Those who are late in identifying the words may develop this problem. Although language will be affected only in the later stages of the onset of the disease, the scientists have accidentally noticed that the brain happen to lost the language comprehension abilities. The network of neurons connected with the brain is unable to process information and the individual cells that stop functioning would die eventually, leading to memory loss. It affects the human’s ability to think and analyze facts and figures and cues in the environment they live. A significant portion of the brain will shrink, reducing its volume, called as atrophy and researchers have identified the important proteins and the biomarkers that denote the onset of Alzheimers disease. Personalized medication and support should be identified with a separate strategy to overcome the issue on individual basis.
