Scientists Found a Part of the Brain Possibly Resistant to Alzheimer’s

part of brain can be resistant to Alzheimer's

Recent research, completed by scientists from the University of Manchester, suggests that part of our brain called cerebellum, which is responsible for movement and balance, can be resistant to dementia.

During the study, the vital organs of 9 people who died from Alzheimer’s disease were analyzed. The researchers found that the cerebellum produced proteins which protect against the disease in these people.

Lead researcher Richard Unwin explains: “The cerebellum, previously thought [to] be unaffected, displays a significant response at the molecular level. Many of the changes here are not seen in other regions and this could imply that this region actively protects itself from disease. We won't know for sure until we carry out more research.”
