Dementia: Blood levels could point to early loss of neuronal connections

Researchers from DZNE and Ulm University Hospital have identified a protein in the blood that may indicate the degradation of neural connections years before the onset of dementia symptoms. If these findings are confirmed, recording this protein called “beta-synuclein” could contribute to the early detection of Alzheimer’s disease and possibly also help to assess nerve damage resulting from stroke or traumatic brain injury.
