Use information from the Brains for Dementia Research Programme to find out which disease combinations lead to a more rapid decline of memory and thinking skills.
People living with dementia can experience a wide range of symptoms, affecting not only someone’s memory and thinking skills, but also their behaviour.
Dr Steven Quinn at the University of York will use a state-of-the-art microscope to look at the interactions between proteins involved in Alzheimer’s, which will paint a clearer picture of how the disease progresses
Researchers at the University of Bristol are investigating the link between the hormone system controlling brain blood flow and the progression of Alzheimer’s disease
Researchers at the University of Edinburgh are investigating how memory loss happens in Alzheimer’s disease
Prof Nick Fox and Prof Jon Schott are studying brain scans to investigate changes in the brain over time in a longitudinal amyloid-PET/MRI study of the 1946 birth cohort.
A blood test, however, would be a simple, cost-effective, relatively non-invasive way to give key insights about brain changes in Alzheimer’s disease.
Researchers at University College London seek to identify changes just under the surface of the brain that could indicate the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease
Researchers at the University of Southampton are studying the effects of blocking an overactive protein that contributes to the development of Alzheimer’s disease
