Reduction of semantic memory could be an indicator of Alzheimer's disease 12 years before onset. Researchers examine different types of memory loss associated with dementia.
Cognitive decline was associated with accelerated bone loss and an increased risk of fractures in older women.
A new study strengthens previous research linking dental health to dementia and cognitive decline. Researchers found tooth loss is a risk factor for cognitive decline and dementia, and with each tooth lost, the risk for cognitive impairment increases.
Performing written cognitive tests with a digital pen allowed researchers to identify differences between "thinking" and "writing" times that may be early biomarkers for cognitive and motor decline.
Nine out of ten older adults who reported symptoms of cognitive decline associated with dementia did not have a clinical diagnosis of neurodegeneration.
Self-reported cognitive decline was associated with altered functional connectivity in the hippocampus and dorsal anterior insular, a new study reports.
Depleting the protein ADORA2B from the blood of mice led to faster cognitive decline, decreased auditory processing, and increased brain inflammation.
People who have trouble falling asleep at night are at increased risk of cognitive decline within fourteen years compared to those with other forms of insomnia, a new study reports.
Secondary infections and novel inflammatory events, even ones that occur external to the brain, amplify the brain's immune response and detrimentally impact cognition in mouse models of Alzheimer's disease.
Changes in sleep patterns in older men have been linked to an increased risk of cognitive decline, researchers report.
A new mathematical model delves into the biological changes that occur in both the aging brain and brains with neurodegenerative disorders. The implications lay forth a new path into developing therapies for neurodegenerative disorders that affect cognition.
