Hippocampus & Blood Sugar 
The brain image above shows the hippocampus (outlined in red), which  is involved in learning and memory. New research suggests that repeated  episodes of high or low blood sugar in people with diabetes may lead to  cognitive impairments associated with this structure.

UC Davis researchers have found novel compounds that disrupt the formation of amyloid, the clumps of protein in the brains of people with Alzheimer's disease believed to be important in causing the disease's characteristic mental decline. The so-called "spin-labeled fluorene compounds" are an important new target for researchers and physicians focused on diagnosing, treating and studying the disease.

Without Glia, the Brain Would Starve | The brain is voracious: compared with other organs, it consumes 10 times more oxygen and nutrients, receiving them by way of dense networks of blood vessels. Scientists know how these networks initially grow, but a surprising new study suggests that they are stabilized in early life by stem cells in the brain called radial glia.
