    APOE TREM and Microglia in the Pathogenesis of Tau-mediated Neurodegeneration with David Holtzman MD - Shiley Endowed Lecture

    APOE TREM and Microglia in the Pathogenesis of Tau-mediated Neurodegeneration with David Holtzman MD - Shiley Endowed Lecture

    David M. Holtzman, MD of the Washington University School of Medicine discusses the mechanisms underlying neurodegeneration and how microglia and specific microglial genes such as TREM2 influence neurodegeneration in the setting of Aβ and tau pathology. Learn how this line of study may lead to new therapeutics and diagnostic testing for Alzheimer's disease. Series: "Brain Channel" [Professional Medical Education] [Show ID: 35262]

    Brain Health Promotion Strategies: Separating Reality-Based Hope From Hopeless Pseudo-Medicine

    Brain Health Promotion Strategies: Separating Reality-Based Hope From Hopeless Pseudo-Medicine

    There are modifiable behaviors that may reduce the risk factor of Alzheimer's: vascular disease, sedentary lifestyle, depression/stress, diet factors and alcohol. Kaitlin Casaletto talks about the benefits of an active lifestyle and proper nutrition. Then Dr. Joanna Hellmuth looks at how to decode direct-to-consumer interventions - dietary supplements - and the rise of pseudo-medicine for dementia. She explains that supplements may or may not be safe and that manufacturers can make broad claims without supporting evidence. Series: "Mini Medical School for the Public" [Show ID: 35136]
