Our eyes can be windows into our inner workings, providing important health clues. One such clue may be a link between thinning of the retina, which may signal the development of Parkinson's disease.
It may be possible sometime in the future to screen patients for Alzheimer's disease using a non-invasive eye exam. A new study finds that technology similar to what many eye doctors already use may be able to identify signs of the condition in patients.
Your eyes may be the window to your soul, but thanks to new research, they may also be the key to detecting Alzheimer's disease early on. Researchers at the Duke Eye Center say a simple eye scan may reveal activity in the brain associated with the debilitating condition.
Catching the development of Alzheimer's disease early on can make a world of difference in helping to treat the devastating condition. Scientists have long sought to find accurate, easier methods of detecting the disease, and now a promising new study shows that a simple saliva test might just do the trick.
A new study finds that a simple eye scan could help predict one’s chances of later developing Alzheimer’s, which afflicts millions of elderly Americans.
Researchers utilized a process called extracellular electron transfer (EET) to make the bacteria highly efficient at electrical current generation.
