Alzheimer and Dementia: new cures for 2015

December 22nd, 2014 — 3:50pm

dementiaA new study indicates that in 2015, patients within the beginning stages of Alzheimer’s might have the ability to regain memories previously thought to be permanently destroyed. Find out where “memory” is stored, and how it might come back if it is lost. When an event happens, the brain pumps out a group of proteins. Those proteins create new synapses – connections between neurons. The forming connections can be disrupted, sometimes with something as simple as a bump on the head. This really is why people who have been knocked out often don’t remember the events leading up to their spell of unconsciousness. The long-term memory was never formed. Because serotonin aids in making these diseases, connections which cause a disruption in serotonin production, also can ruin someone’s ability to make long-term memories.
