A diet rich in pomegranates had significant positive impacts for the brain health of mice with Alzheimer’s disease, an international research team led by the Centre for Healthy Brain Ageing (CHeBA) at UNSW found.
Centre for Healthy Brain Ageing (CHeBA) researchers received $2.6 million in grant funding from the National Health and Medical Research Council as part of an international collaboration to identify the genes involved in dementia.
Researchers at CHeBA are investigating the role of apolipoproteins in normal and pathological brain ageing, such as Alzheimer’s disease, with the assistance of a philanthropic research grant from the Sachdev Foundation.
Every week we see new claims for risk factors, preventative strategies or breakthrough treatments for Alzheimer's disease. These claims may seem unlikely, contradictory or fail to be supported by evidence-based research.
One of the biggest global public health challenges in human history is that of dementia. The idea that we can defeat dementia is gripping the entire world, and the answer may be in big data research led by the Centre for Healthy Brain Ageing (CHeBA) at the University of New South Wales.
