How do our bodies repair a nerve injury? @WeizmannInstitute scientists discovered how our nerve cells’ repair machinery operates, paving the way to new treatments for a host of disorders. Check out the link in our profile to learn more.

Your brain keeps making new nerve cells, even as you get older.
That's a big deal. For decades, researchers believed that aging brains stop making new cells. But recent research has offered strong evidence to the contrary, and a new paper published Thursday in the journal Cell Stem Cell tries to put the notion to bed entirely. #brain #brains #ColumbiaUniversity #Elderlyadults #humanlifetime #MauraBoldrini #nervecells #neurobiologist #recentresearch #teenagers http://www.b2s.pm/rfxv3h

Alzheimer's disease is a neurological disorder in which the death of brain cells causes memory loss and cognitive decline.
It is the most common type of dementia, accounting for 60 to 80 percent of cases of dementia in the United States. As symptoms worsen, it becomes harder for people to remember recent events, to reason, and to recognize people they know. Like all types of dementia, Alzheimer's is caused by brain cell death. It is a neurodegenerative disease, which means there is progressive brain cell death that happens over time.

In a person with Alzheimer's, the tissue has fewer and fewer nerve cells and connections.

Autopsies have shown that the nerve tissue in the brain of a person with Alzheimer's has tiny deposits, known as plaques and tangles, that build up on the tissue.
Risk factors remain genetic and environmental.
The first picture a shrunken brain due to nerve cells and brain tissue damage and death. The second picture shows the tangles and plaques formed during alzheimer’s disease. Tangles form inside dying cells. Tangles are twisted fibers of a protein called tau. In healthy areas, tau helps keep the transport system on track. But in areas where tangles are forming, the twisted strands of tau essentially disintegrate the transport system so that nutrients and other essential supplies can no longer move through the cells, which eventually die.
Plaques are abnormal clusters of chemically “sticky” proteins called beta-amyloid that build up between nerve cells. The most damaging form of beta-amyloid may be groups of a few pieces rather than the plaques themselves. The small clumps may block cell-to-cell signaling at synapses. They may also activate immune system cells that trigger inflammation and devour disabled cells.

Friday Food Facts - "Copper is the crucial element for producing the color in hair and skin, for maintaining the elasticity of skin and blood vessels, for protecting against certain types of free radical, and especially for allowing us to use oxygen properly for the production of biological energy. It is also necessary for the normal functioning of certain nerve cells (substantia nigra) whose degeneration is involved in Parkinson's disease. The shape and texture of hair, as well as its color, can change in a copper deficiency." Ray Peat

Great copper sources are shrimp and oysters.

How does Billions of Nerve Cells make multiple connections with each other on a daily basis?

A nerve cell 'talks' to another nerve cell by releasing chemicals called neurotransmitters. These billions of nerve cells change the way they talk to each other based on the information the brain receives from its five senses. This ability of the brain to continuously adapt to our ever-changing environment, is known as 'neural plasticity'

Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive brain disorder. It’s the most common cause of dementia, accounting for 50-75% of ~44 million dementia cases worldwide each year. More than 90% of Alzheimer’s disease cases are the late-onset form, with symptoms appearing after 65 years of age. Symptoms of the disease vary from person-to-person however the most common initial sign is #memoryloss.
.
Diagnosing Alzheimer’s is difficult and there is currently no cure. But treatment options are available for delaying the progression of the disease, and helps patients to maintain mental function and managing behavioural symptoms.
.
The APOE gene is the biggest genetic risk factor linked to late-onset Alzheimer’s. Individuals who carry the APOE e4 allele can have up to a 15X increase lifetime risk of developing the disease.
.

#Genovate APOE genetic test determines which APOE allele you have inherited. These variants can indicate whether an individual has a neural, increased or decreased lifetime risk of developing late-onset Alzhiemer’s disease. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Did you know you have thousands of sensors on your #nervecells that open up in response to different stimulus (chemicals, temperature, stretch, etc), constantly sensing the world around you, on the lookout for danger, reporting back to your brain. A really interesting and therapeutically relevant piece of information is that these sensors only live for a few days!! Lots of implications here for pain, hypersensitivity, chronic pain, fibromyalgia... But one key point of empowerment is that our nerve sensitivity and our experience in our body is constantly changing! One of many reasons why yoga can be such a critical component in recalibrating our nervous system and our experience in our body. #recalibrate #yogamedicine #loveyourbody #livethelifeyoulove

Finally had the energy to do something for #brainawarenessweek • • • Motor neurone cells, a.k.a the root of all my problems 😂 I think these may have been one of my first embroidery projects for Year 7 Biology • • • • •

t's not that the cells are сells are nerves, it's the whole world around is nervous, and me, as a result😂
Stay calm and follow the harmony with your organism. It always knows the best. And don't lose your life on being nervous to much🙏

Sooo cool. It's like all my little friends got together and invited me to come play. That's so weird to hear out loud but if you're a nerd and are obsessed with bright office supplies, this graphic will actually intoxicate you a bit, like it did me. 📝 🤔

Ugh, I miss school so much. Who wants to trade lives for a day? You be a business owner and I study this shit while taking doodling notes and maybe doing your homework, but mostly I just highlight shit and listen to lectures about brains. Who's in?

Brain cells communicate via tiny little chemical messengers called neurotransmitters 💫 At ANY given moment, the billions of cells in our brain send and receive signals that influence everything from what we think, feel, learn, or remember. Upon receiving new information, a nerve cell transmits an electrical signal, triggering the release of chemicals called neurotransmitters 🧠 .
