Study establishes a robust link between ozone exposure and an increase in cognitive impairment in older adults.
Researchers have identified a link between misshapen, fast replicating tau proteins, and accelerated cognitive decline. The findings shed new light on the development and progression of Alzheimer's disease.
Researchers have identified a "sweet spot" during exercise that appears to reverse age-related cognitive decline and improves learning in mouse models.
Older people who experience elevated heart rates are at increased risk for developing dementia, researchers report.
Physical activity appears to reduce microglial activation and improve cognition in the aging human brain, researchers report.
A new framework reveals Alzheimer's disease is far more complex than previously believed. Rather than being a disease where the same causes produce the same outcomes, researchers found three different models for the disease, each with its own characterizations and dynamics.
Older adults who sleep less than 4.5 hours, or more than 6.5 hours per night and who experience sleep disruptions are at greater risk of cognitive decline, researchers report.
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.
While the positive impact of breastfeeding on babies is well known, little is known about the positive benefits for the mother. A new study reveals women who breastfed their children performed better on cognitive tests at age 50 than those who fed their children with an alternative method.
A new study reveals how adipocytes, or fat cells, play a role in cognitive decline and increased neurodegeneration risks. Using genetically modified mouse models, researchers found oxidative stress through exposure to a Western diet increased the production of inflammatory cytokines confined to adipocytes and altered protein markers of memory and cognition in the hippocampus.
