A key factor in this process involves plasticity- the brain’s innate ability to create new connections & rewire itself. At all ages, the brain remains plastic. It is highest during childhood, and diminishes as you get older. Plasticity is present to some extent, however, at all stages of life.
If we focus on increasing plasticity, Alzheimer’s symptoms can be improved. Especially if we can simultaneously diminish the rate of brain deterioration that is part of Alzheimer’s.
Scientists are hard at work uncovering the pathways that govern plasticity. Recently, a team has identified an important protein that plays a role: Reelin. This protein has amazingly been shown to rescue the cognitive deficits in an Alzheimer’s animal model. [Here is a link to the study in Nature Communications]
Importantly, there is something you can do right now to safely, naturally, boost brain plasticity. It would be the trillion dollar drug if pharmaceutical companies could bottle it: Aerobic Exercise. While there are hundreds of studies that support this statement, here is one highly cited source: Exercise: a behavioral intervention to enhance brain health and plasticity.
