Using artificial neural networks to analyze neuroimaging data, researchers are able to accurately determine biological age.
The effects of COVID-19 infection on neurological health are becoming more apparent. A new study reveals COVID-19 can predispose people to irreversible neurological conditions, accelerate brain aging, and increase the risk of stroke and brain bleeds.
Singing in a social group such as a choir may help protect cognitive function and treat aphasia in older adults.
Severe COVID-19 infection results in cognitive impairment similar to that sustained by natural aging between the ages of 50 to 70, and is equivalent to losing 10 IQ points.
Using whole-brain virtual models, researchers simulate the effects of non-invasive neurostimulation on the aging brain. The computational models shed light on the dynamics of brain changes as a result of aging.
A new artificial intelligence algorithm analyses MRI data to accurately predict the age of a brain.
Older adults who remain active have more of a class of proteins that enhance synapses to help maintain healthy cognitive function.
People with older-looking brains were born with lower birth weight and genes for smaller brains compared to those with normal aging brains, a new study reports. As both factors present early in life, researchers say "brain age" is likely related to early life influences and not so much on events that occur later in life.
In both aging human and mouse experiments, researchers identified a link between the MEF2 gene and cognitive resilience. Findings suggest enhancing MEF2 activity could protect the brain against age-related dementia.
