Moderate alcohol consumption in people over the age of 60 is linked to greater hippocampal volume and better episodic memory, a new study reports.
A new study reports insomnia, especially in older people, stems from the quality of rest a person gets and not the overall amount of sleep.
Researchers believe their findings could eventually help produce treatments to slow or reverse cognitive decline in older people.
A new neuroimaging study shows how the brain changes throughout life. The study has helped researchers create a standard curve which can assess whether people are facing neurological problems as they age.
Researchers discover a strong association between the structural integrity of white matter tracks in the brain and the level of physical activity older people engage in daily.
Researchers provide evidence that an absence of MK2/3 is linked to early signs of dementia.
According to a new study, older adults who sleep poorly are more likely to die by suicide than those who are well rested.
Researchers identify a possible, common source of DNA damage which could play a role in neurodegenerative diseases, cancer and aging.
Researchers discover a gene already associated with longevity also improves memory and learning. The findings could help develop new treatments for cognitive decline.
