Researchers report specialized cognitive training can help make the brain more energy efficient as we age.
A new study from researchers at Rush University reveals eating one serving of leafy greens a day could help preserve memory and cognitive skills in older people.
Using the classic Nintendo game, Super Mario 64, researchers discover playing 3D platform games could help older brains to stave off mild cognitive impairment. Researchers report older people who played the video game had gray matter increases in the cerebellum, hippocampus and dorsolateral prefrontal cortex.
A new study that analyzed the brains of 107 older people sheds light on the neurobiology of both healthy and diseases aging.
An FAU neuroscientist is developing a new method for treating Alzheimer's disease. The focus of the program is to individualize the treatment options for Alzheimer's patients.
A Neuroimaging study, conducted by King's College London researchers, reveals accelerated brain aging during adulthood for those born very prematurely. Researchers noted those born preterm tended to have smaller global gray matter volume and some brain structure changes in areas associate with spatial abilities and behavior control in adulthood.
University of Edinburgh researchers have discovered a 'timetable' for brain aging. They report most of the changes in gene expression were complete by middle age and female brains appear to age at a slower rate than male brains. Researchers note the biggest reorganization of genes occurs around the age of 26.
Researchers add to evidence that omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids promote health brain aging.
Changes in proteins associated with aging directly impact amyloid beta formations, a protein associated with Alzheimer's disease.
Researchers report low doses of THC can help restore memory and reverse some of the effects of brain aging in mice. The findings could open new avenues for treating dementia and other neurodegenerative diseases.
Using neuroimaging technology, researchers are able to predict a person's brain age. This could also help to spot who is at risk of poor health and early death.
