A new study reveals a potential link between REM sleep behavior disorder and an increased risk of developing Parkinson's disease. Researchers say the sleep disorder alters cerebral blood flow, leading to a lack of oxygen in brain tissue. This, in the long term, may increase Parkinson's risk.
According to a new study, children and young adults with chronic kidney disease have changes in cerebral blood flow that could increase the risk of cognitive impairment.
Obesity has been linked to severely restricted blood flow in the brain. Reduced blood flow in the brain, or cerebral hypoperfusion, can be an early indicator of vascular dementia and Alzheimer's disease.
According to a new study, poor kidney function is linked to stroke and dementia as a result of decreased blood flow to the brain.
According to researchers, regular exercise at any age can help to reduce aterial stiffness and could help to provide some protection against Alzheimer's disease.
Exercise is associated with improved brain function and a decrease in cerebral blood flow in older people with mild cognitive impairment, a new study reports.
Researchers report applying ultrasound to the whole brain improves cognitive dysfunction in mouse models of dementia. A clinical trial is currently underway to test the effectiveness in humans with the neurodegenerative disease.
Cerebral blood flow is reduced in the Broca's area of people who stutter, researchers report. Additionally, the more severely a person stutters, the less blood flows to this area of the brain.
A new study reports the Ketogenic diet can help to improve cognition. The study reports the Ketogenic diet can help improve balance in the gut microbiome, lower blood glucose levels and increase the processes that help to clear amyloid beta from the brain.
