Key Techniques in Diagnosing Dementia
List May 02, 2019 | by Ruairi J Mackenzie, Science Writer for Technology Networks
Over 100 years has passed since Alois Alzheimer’s pioneering work into recognizing the symptoms of dementia. Since then, our ability to diagnose dementia, if not treat it, has hugely advanced. Early intervention is often invaluable in the treatment of dementia, both in terms of slowing disease progress and in helping prepare the patient and their loved ones for the future.
This list will review the current techniques that are used to diagnose dementia and the advances that are being made to exploit some of Alzheimer’s original discoveries to more quickly and accurately assess dementia.

2019 has been an important year for neuroscience research. In this list, we look at 10 of the most important stories in neuroscience from the last year, touching on brain implants, adult neurogenesis and promising therapies for neurological conditions. Here's to another huge new year (and decade) in 2020!
In recent decades, functional investigation of neuronal physiology has become the gold standard for decoding how the brain works. This list will look at the main differences between electrophysiological approaches, the most recent innovations in the field and opportunities that recent technological advances have given us.READ MORE
