    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.

    Fraud and Fabrication in Alzheimer's Research

    Fraud and Fabrication in Alzheimer's Research

    In this episode, we discuss the recent allegation of fabrication in a highly influential research article on Alzheimer's that was published in Nature in 2006, which paved the way for more than a decade of research and more than 2000 papers citing that research. Does this mean years of wasted NIH funding and wasted thinking in the field?

One of the best podcasts

I am an avid podcast listener and I find this podcast to be one of the best. I think they make the subject of preventative brain health interesting. It would be great to hear an episode devoted to the topics of strokes. Their book is a wonderful resource as well.
