Dementia breakthrough: New therapy ‘could reduce the onset of Alzheimer’s disease’

Associate Professor Jae Gwan Kim, one of the study’s leads, explains: “Compared with other gamma entrainment methods that rely on sounds or flickering lights, ultrasound can reach the brain non-invasively without disturbing our sensory system.

“This makes ultrasound-based approaches more comfortable for the patients.”

After exposing mice to the ultrasound pulses for two hours daily over two weeks, the plaque concentration was reduced.

They also saw functional improvements in the animal modes, suggesting that brain connectivity could also benefit from this treatment.
