Alzheimer's disease & dementia

Using math to help treat Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and other diseases

Protein aggregation—in which misfolded proteins clump together to form large fibrils—has been implicated in many diseases including Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and type II diabetes. While the exact role these fibrils play ...

Hidden dynamics detected in neuronal networks

Neuronal networks in the brain can process information particularly well when they are close to a critical point—or so brain researchers had assumed based on theoretical considerations. However, experimental investigations ...
