The optimal amount of sleep for middle-aged and older adults is seven hours per night. Sleeping too little, or too much, was associated with poor cognitive performance and mental health, researchers say.
From helping to improve attention and staving off cognitive decline, to improving immune system function, researchers explore the many health benefits tea has to offer.
Type 1 interferon is a major diver of cognitive impairment and memory loss in mouse models of Alzheimer's disease. Blocking IFN reversed both cognitive impairments and memory deficits in the animal models.
3,6’-dithiopomalidomide (DP), an anti-inflammatory drug candidate, protected mouse models of Alzheimer's disease against cognitive decline by reducing neuroinflammation.
Young people who experience high blood pressure may have an increased risk of brain changes during mid-life that are associated with later cognitive decline.
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.
