CLAMP* project: acoustic and visual stimulation to reduce amyloid

Alzheimer's disease is a neurodegenerative disease characterised by the abnormal accumulation of amyloid proteins in the brain. This process begins several years before the onset of typical symptoms of the disease.
Two recent studies on mice, published in leading scientific journals, provide interesting indications that acoustic and visual stimulation at 40 Hz can reduce the amount of amyloid in the brain.
The aim of the CLAMP project, funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation, is to determine whether multisensory stimulation (acoustic and visual) at 40 Hz can reduce the amount of amyloid in the brain of people who have high levels of this protein and are therefore at risk of developing dementia. In addition, it will be evaluated whether this intervention is associated with improvements in brain electrical activity, blood biomarkers of Alzheimer's disease and cognitive function.
