In small study, electrical currents helped distinguish Alzheimer's from another form of brain trouble

Distinguishing Alzheimer's disease from another common form of dementia may get easier using a new, noninvasive technique, researchers say.

While Alzheimer's is the best-known form of dementia, another form of brain deterioration, called frontotemporal dementia (FTD), accounts for 10 percent to 15 percent of dementia cases.

However, the researchers noted that FTD is often initially misdiagnosed as a psychiatric disorder, Alzheimer's disease or Parkinson's disease.

The median survival for glioblastoma patients is about 15 months, oncologists say

Sen. John McCain faces an uphill battle fighting the aggressive cancer discovered in his brain last week, experts say.

The cancer, glioblastoma, is the most common malignant tumor that originates in brain cells, as opposed to cancers that spread to the brain from elsewhere in the body, said Dr. Manmeet Ahluwalia, dean of the Cleveland Clinic's Rose Ella Burkhardt Brain Tumor and Neuro-Oncology Center.
