Alzheimer's disease is a debilitating disease which may be influenced positively with the use of dietary nutrients; specifically with foods containing phytochemicals. The purpose of this project is to rewrite chapter information on this topic originally researched and written by Dr. Richard E. Hartman. The hope is that this can be submitted in the form of a review article and subsequently published.

Currently I am searching recent review articles written on this topic to decide if there is a need for such a review article.

Below is a list of some of the journals publishing articles on Alzheimer's disease & nutrients:

  • Free Radical Biology and Medicine
*Nutrition and the Brain
*Journal of Gerontology
*Journal of American Geriatrics
*Parmaco. Biochem. Behavior
*Arch. Neurol
*Geriatric Soc
*PostGrad. Med
*Free Rad. Research
*Food Chem
*J. Neuroscience
*Mech Aging Dev
*Brain Res (rats)
*J. Agric Food Chem
*Nutr Neurosci
*Exp Gerontol
*Int. J. Dev. Neurosci
*Am. J. Epidemiology
*Am. J. Clin. Nutr
*J. Gerontol. A Biol Sci Med

Must find a journal that will take unsolicited reviews.

Testing Jerry's rats

hey there melissa - i'm reading your May 9th entry for the testing, and while cleaning up the format will help, some of the items could use some more explanation to help me understand what you did - for instance, the "wall", etc?

also - what were your general observations about each test - how did the animals perform on each test, generally? what about your sense of the "usefulness" of each of these - I haven't done some of these so i don't have the experience, but if i understand the test better and how the animals responded overall, it may help me get a sense of its validity. where did you get these tests from? could you compile a source list on the project's front page?

"Do we need smaller cage cover for neonates?" not sure what this exactly means....

did you see any of the histology?

(i'm curious as to why he didn't want to tail pinch, poke with blunt end of q-tip, etc?)

Personal/Lab Info

We have gone ahead and filled in some information you provided us in your membership application on your User Page. Please take a moment to embellish this and tell the community a little more about you. Put links to your lab pages, your projects and your interests. If you run out of ideas, take a look at some of the other User pages. For example, check out User:Julius_B._Lucks, User:Jason_R._Kelly and User:Reshma_P._Shetty.

You'll also notice that we have put an 'image' placeholder at the top of your User Page. We encourage you to upload an image of yourself to give OWW a more personal feel. To upload an image, click on the Upload file link on the left-hand side (toolbar). Choose a file from your computer, and remember the file name. After you have uploaded the image, you should see it loaded on its own page. Go back to your User Page, click on edit, and replace 'OWWEmblem.png' with the name of your file that you have uploaded in the second line of this page.
