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.
Obstructive sleep apnea is common in people with cognitive impairment, researchers report. The severity of obstructive sleep apnea correlated with the degree of cognitive impairment.
Gait variability in older adults could be a predictor of cognitive decline and Alzheimer's disease. Researchers found higher gait variability was associated with lower cognitive performance and an accurate predictor of Alzheimer's disease.
Specific patterns of frontal brainwaves during everyday memory tasks help researchers to predict a patient's risk for developing mild cognitive impairment within five years.
A simple vision test can predict whether a person with Parkinson's disease will develop cognitive decline or dementia within 18 months.
A new study reveals the impact of diet on cognitive health as we age. Researchers found cheese consumption had neuroprotective effects against cognitive decline. Daily moderate consumption of red wine was associated with improvements in cognitive function.
Higher baseline levels of N-terminal fragment of tau in the blood of healthy subjects was associated with an increased risk of developing cognitive deficits and Alzheimer's disease later in life.
