Dementia with Lewy bodies
Dr Daniel Erskine at the University of Newcastle will investigate how neurons are affected by Dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB).
Researcher, Prof Jody Mason at the University of Bath will investigate the build-up of a key protein in the development of dementia with Lewy bodies.
Researchers at the University College London aim to understand the mechanisms underpinning visual hallucinations in both DLB and Parkinson’s disease.
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.
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.
Researchers from the University of Cambridge are using computer models to study dementia with Lewy bodies
Research at Imperial College London is exploring the link between head injury and dementia
Researchers at Newcastle University are investigating why some nerve cells are more susceptible than others to damage in dementia with Lewy bodies.
Researchers at the University of Groningen are working to design drugs to stop the clumping of toxic proteins in the diseases that cause dementia.
Researchers at the University of Manchester are using sophisticated chambers to monitor how toxic proteins spread in dementia and the complex relationship between brain cells and their blood supply.
