Researchers Find Algorithm for Large-Scale Brain Simulations


Vegetable Compound Could Have a Key Role in ‘Beeting’ Alzheimer’s Disease


A compound in beets that gives the vegetable its distinctive red color could eventually help slow the accumulation of misfolded proteins in the brain, a process that is associated with Alzheimer’s disease.


The Mouse Brain Can Prioritize Hunger by Suppressing Pain When Survival is at Stake


Researchers show that pain and hunger interact in complex ways in mice: extreme hunger suppresses less-urgent inflammatory pain, so that the mice are willing to go find food, but leaves them able to feel and react to more life-and-death kinds of pain.


A New Way of Thinking About Tau Kinetics


Scientists have used mass spectrometry and stable isotope labeling kinetics to study tau in the cerebrospinal fluid of people who were known to have Alzheimer's and healthy controls with some interesting results.

My husband will be 81 years old next month and was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease 13 months ago. his main symptom were and rigidity or stiffness of his right-hand side.he also had some difficulty writing. The original diagnosis was confirmed three months later by a second neurologist. He was on one tablet of pramipexole (Sifrol), 0.25 mg three times a day. Four months ago his neurologist added Biperiden, 2 mg. he takes half a tablet of Biperiden three times a day. Since the original diagnosis, his stiffness has slowly increased. He lost touch with reality. Suspecting it was the medication I took him off the Siferol (with the doctor’s knowledge) and started him on PD natural herbal formula we ordered from GREEN HOUSE HERBAL CLINIC, I spoke to few people who used the treatment here in Canada and they all gave a positive response, his symptoms totally declined over a 6 weeks use of the Green House Parkinson’s disease natural herbal formula. He is now almost 81 and doing very well, the disease is totally reversed! (Visit their website www . Greenhouseherbalclinic . com) I am thankful to nature, herbs are truly gift from God.
