Summary: Researchers report orthostatic hypotension could cause lasting damage to the brain because it can reduce blood flow to the...
Researchers discuss how blood pressure can influence dementia risks and report raising diastolic blood pressure through daily soleus muscle, or calf muscle, stimulation can help reverse signs of cognitive decline associated with aging.
Heightened states of arousal altered neural circuits in a brain area associated with decision making, resulting in some neurons changing from decision making to internal state monitors.
Young people who experience high blood pressure may have an increased risk of brain changes during mid-life that are associated with later cognitive decline.
A new study reports high blood pressure in middle age may lead to cognitive impairment and could be a risk factor for Alzheimer's disease.
Two drugs commonly prescribed to treat heart disease and angina, are well tolerated in stroke patients. Early indications suggest the treatments may help to improve blood vessel function in the arms and brain, and may also improve cognitive skills.
People who experience dizziness when standing face an increased risk of developing dementia, a new study reports. The increased risk appears to only apply to those who experience a drop in their systolic blood pressure. Those with systolic orthostatic hypotension were 40% more likely to develop dementia than those who did not suffer from the condition.
A new study reveals an association between high blood pressure in a person's thirties and forties to smaller brain size and an increased risk of developing dementia later in life.
Astronauts do not feel dizzy or faint during post-flight exercise, so long as they participate in certain types of exercise in space and receive IV fluids when they return to earth. The findings could have implications for people postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS).
The difference in blood pressure between a person's arms is linked to a higher risk of heart attack, stroke, and ultimately death.
According to a new study, middle aged people with high pulse pressure are more likely to have biomarkers for Alzheimer's disease in their spinal fluid than those with lower pulse pressure.
