It’s the most painful part of Alzheimer’s, when your own parent can’t remember your face, let alone your name. But for one daughter of a dementia patient, she got to experience the joy of having her mother recognize her, if only for a moment.

YouTube user Kelly Gunderson uploaded this touching video of a visit with her mother, simply stating, “My 87 year old mother with Alzheimer’s knew who I was, even if just for a moment.”

The short clip shows the moment Gunderson’s mother remembers her daughter’s name, much to her daughter’s surprise. “Didn’t I name you Kelly?” the mother says.

Scientists stop brain cells in mice from dying in potential Alzheimer’s treatment breakthrough

A team of British scientists has released a major study that could represent a breakthrough in the treatment of human neurological diseases, such as Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s. 

In a study published Wednesday in the journal Science Translational Medicine, the team said that it had halted brain cell death in mice by using a drug-like compound that was injected into the animals’ stomachs through a mouth tube. 

The team induced a neurodegenerative disease caused by abnormal prion proteins — the nearest model of human disorders that can be found in animals — before treating one group with the compound. According to the study, the mice who were treated remained free of symptoms like memory loss, impaired reflexes, and limb dragging five weeks later. The treated mice also lived longer than the untreated mice.

A dramatic shift is beginning in the disappointing struggle to find something to slow the damage of Alzheimer’s disease: The first U.S. experiments with “brain pacemakers” for Alzheimer’s are getting under way. Scientists are looking beyond drugs to implants in the hunt for much-needed new treatments. (AP/Merck & Co.)

Music Brings Dementia Patients Back to Life

A new film about the healing power of music shows how people with Alzheimer’s and other degenerative diseases can be ‘awakened’ by simply listening to songs from their past. Get ready to cry.

Having a bad day? We can fix that.

There’s a new video making the rounds right now, and it’s pretty much guaranteed to make you feel better about being alive. We don’t want to oversell it, but if you have a heart, this will warm it.

The six-minute video — which is actually a clip from a new documentary, Alive Inside, about the power of music to “awaken” the minds of people with Alzheimer’s and other degenerative diseases — revolves around an elderly man named Henry, who has been in a nursing home for over a decade with seizures and memory loss.

Adding omega-3 fatty acids to your diet won’t cure rheumatoid arthritis, but it just might help relieve some of your worst symptoms, like joint pain and stiffness. Omega-3 fatty acids are called essential fatty acids because your body needs them but can’t make them. That means it’s up to you to make sure they’re part of your diet. Shortchange yourself, and you could experience memory loss, memory loss, and even depression.
