    Alzheimer’s Genetics, Omega-3s and Brain Health - Dr. Hussein Yassine, MD

    Alzheimer’s Genetics, Omega-3s and Brain Health - Dr. Hussein Yassine, MD

    In this episode, we sat down with Dr. Hussein Yassine, Associate Professor of Medicine at Keck School of Medicine of USC.
    He is the director of the Yassine lab (www.yassinelab.com) and specializes in how changes in lipid metabolism and nutrition affect cognition and the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease (AD). The lab has an interest in studying how carrying the APOE4 allele, strongest genetic risk factors for developing AD, affects lipid metabolism, the response to the diet; combining basic science, clinical trials and brain imaging studies. 
    We discussed brain physiology and development, lipid metabolism in the brain, genetics, especially ApoE4 genotype and risk of AD, and his research on omega-3 fatty acids and prevention of cognitive decline. We hope you find the information helpful.

Articulate and true to their science

I’m a mature aged student about to finish my undergrad. Having studied a science degree I really appreciate Dean and Ayesha’s approach to research as this area is so often compromised. Every conversation is well articulated for all audiences and there is no hysterical hype. My thanks to you both for all that you give and do. If I ever get to the States you are on my bucket list!

Accessible

The Sherzai are my go to podcast on how lifestyle and diet impact brain health! They make complex neuroscience accessible and consumable for a non science person. I love hearing the passion and commitment that comes through on their podcast.
