MGH Study: New Nerve Cell Production May Help Combat Alzheimer’s Cognitive Impacts

Inducing new neuron growth helps clean up the environment of a brain affected by Alzheimer’s and restore some cognitive function.

Neurogenesis is the formation of new nerve cells (neurons) in the brain, and it’s a process that begins in the embryo and lasts a lifetime. But for people with Alzheimer’s disease (AD), inflammation in the brain causes the death of new neurons. That, in turn, stops the positive impact of healthy brain cells on thinking […]
