Singing in a social group such as a choir may help protect cognitive function and treat aphasia in older adults.
Glycan, a special sugar protein, appears to play a significant role in the development of Alzheimer's disease.
The FMNL2 gene links cerebrovascular disease and Alzheimer's disease, a new study reports. Changes of activity in the FMNL2 caused by cerebrovascular disease prevent the efficient cleaning of toxic proteins in the brain, leading to the development of Alzheimer's disease.
From keeping active and eating a healthy diet to controlling cholesterol and reducing sugar intake, researchers report on seven simple lifestyle changes older adults with genetic risk factors can make to reduce the chance of developing dementia.
Using CPAP to treat sleep apnea could help improve cognitive decline symptoms in older adults with mild cognitive impairment.
Researchers have identified a mechanism that occurs within the CA3 region of the hippocampus that appears to be responsible for a common type of age-related memory loss.
A new study reports that increased volume in the choroid plexus appears to be associated with greater cognitive impairment and Alzheimer's disease.
Sleep continuity, in addition to sleep quality, can determine how a person with dementia will experience their symptoms the next day.
A combination of patient-reported subjective cognitive impairment and measurable clinical symptoms, such as amyloid-beta accumulation in the cerebrospinal fluid, may help in the early diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease.
Healthy eating, daily exercise, reducing alcohol consumption, and not smoking not only lead to a longer life, but they can also reduce Alzheimer's risk for those with genetic risk factors.
Middle-aged people who consume blueberries every day may have a reduced risk of developing dementia, a new study reports.
