Researchers have identified three biomarkers in blood samples that confirm the link between exercise and improved cognitive function in older adults.
A new deep neural network can accurately predict a healthy person's brain age based on EEG data collected from a sleep study.
People diagnosed with Alzheimer's or mild cognitive impairment had weaker gamma wave activation in their brains than their peers without the neurodegenerative disorders.
Making small lifestyle changes, such as improving diet, exercising, enjoying social activities, and reducing blood pressure, can reduce the risk of developing dementia in older people with certain risk factors.
When listening to a phrase over and over, the words often begin to sound like a song. Researchers found this speech-to-song illusion does not decrease with age.
Adults over 80 who maintained a healthy lifestyle, including exercise and diet, had a lower risk of cognitive decline, even if they had genetic risk factors for dementia.
Older adults with more natural teeth are better able to carry out simple everyday tasks like cooking and cleaning compared to those who have lost their teeth, a new study reports. Researchers found a causal link between tooth loss and functional capacity in older adults. Tooth loss was also associated with a decline in social activity.
Changes in sleep patterns in older men have been linked to an increased risk of cognitive decline, researchers report.
