The outside symptoms of Alzheimer's disease—memory loss, personality changes, difficulty performing everyday tasks—are often heartbreaking to watch or scary to experience. They are a reflection of what the disease does to the brain—sticky proteins called amyloid beta collect into plaques, which can interrupt the connections between brain cells and eventually cause the cells to die.

Researchers demonstrate the first electrochemical reaction based on hydride ions in an oxide-based solid-state cell for next-gen batteries Ionic transport has been studied extensively over the years for energy devices such as fuel cells and batteries using Li+, H+, Ag+, Cu+, F–, and O2–. Yet as Genki Kobayashi and Ryoji Kanno point out in a recent report (Science, "Pure H– conduction in oxyhydrides"), hydride ions (H-) may be particularly useful for high-energy-density storage devices. Using an oxyhydride solid state cell they have now demonstrated pure H- conduction in an oxide for the first time.
