Vasomotor symptoms, including hot flashes in postmenopausal women, may contribute to memory performance problems. Neuroimaging reveals hot flashes caused alterations in brain function during memory encoding and retrieval tasks, specifically within the hippocampus and prefrontal cortex.
Older dogs are slower to learn and exhibit lower cognitive flexibility than younger dogs, but are better at logical reasoning, a new study reports.
Researchers report on a possible link between long term cognitive health and protection from some chronic diseases.
A new study shows people as young as in their 40s are suffering from stiffening of the arteries, which is associated with structural brain damage implicated in Alzheimer's disease.
Contrary to popular belief, taking a low-dose of aspirin daily does not reduce the risk of developing mild cognitive impairment (MCI). Researchers found no difference between older people who took aspirin and those who took a placebo in the risk of developing MCI, dementia, or Alzheimer's disease.
Resveratrol analogues appears to switch splicing factors back on, causing cells to look younger, start rejuvenating and behaving like young cells within hours of exposure, a new study reports.
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.
A new study reveals older adults with slower walking speeds are at an increased risk of developing dementia.
A new algorithm uses neuroimaging data of amyloid levels in the brain and takes into account a person's age to determine when a person with genetic Alzheimer's risk factors, and with no signs of cognitive decline, will develop the disease.
According to a new study, middle aged men who consume more than 36 grams of alcohol per day could speed their memory loss by up to six years later in life.
A new study reports on a surprising link between OSA and Alzheimer's disease. Researchers report people who suffer a number of apneas per hour have increased accumulation of amyloid beta in the brain over time.
