A diet high in processed foods leads to neuroinflammation and memory decline in older rats, a new study reports. Supplementing a processed food diet with DHA, an omega 3 fatty acid, helped mitigate memory problems and reduce inflammation.
People whose blood pressure is elevated but still falls within the normal range are at increased risk of accelerated brain aging, researchers report.
A new deep neural network can accurately predict a healthy person's brain age based on EEG data collected from a sleep study.
The Tsimane, an indigenous people from the Bolivian Amazon, have less brain atrophy than American aging adults, a new study reports. Additionally, the decrease in their brain volume associated with aging is 70% less than seen in older American adults.
A new study disputes the common belief that obtaining a higher education can help slow brain aging.
People with cerebral small vessel damage who also had a leaky blood-brain barrier had more tissue damage after two years than those whose blood-brain barrier was intact.
Anabolic androgenic steroids, drugs commonly associated with muscle building and enhancing athletic performance, are known to increase the risk for certain health disorders. A new study reveals anabolic steroids may also accelerate brain aging.
Cortical-asymmetry loss begins when we hit our thirties, with an accelerated decline as we enter our sixties. The brain changes are further accelerated in those with Alzheimer's disease.
Healthy older adults exposed to hyperbaric oxygen therapies showed signs of reversal of the normal aging process at a cellular level.
Using brain tissue samples, researchers have identified a new epigenetic clock for brain aging. The study reveals how the epigenetic clock could provide insight into accelerated brain aging and neurodegenerative disorders.
