A new study reports leaky capillaries in the brain may be an early sign of Alzheimer's disease as it can signal cognitive impairment prior to the buildup of proteins associated with the neurodegenerative disease.
A new study links poor sleep quality in older adults with elevated levels of tau, a protein associated with Alzheimer's disease. Researchers report poor sleep quality later in life may be associated with declining brain health and may be an early indicator of Alzheimer's disease.
Researchers report abstract reasoning in old age may be used to predict depressive symptoms over an extended period of time. The study found a correlation between a decline in abstract reasoning and a worsening of depressive symptoms in older people.
Chemotherapy is often blamed for memory loss and cognitive problems in cancer survivors. However, new research published in Neuroscience challenges this belief. Researchers report cognitive impairments, often referred to as Chemo Fog, may actually start as the tumor grows and develops.
A UCSD study reveals people aged 85 and older who consumed moderated amounts of alcohol daily were twice as likely to be cognitively healthy than those who did not drink.
Researchers discover physical activity has an influence on brain metabolism, preventing an increase in choline. A new Translational Psychiatry report suggests physical exercise may help protect neurons and reduce symptoms of dementia in older people.
A new study reports a connection between slowed walking speed and cognitive decline appears to arise in the right hippocampus. Researchers recommend older people may benefit if their doctors measure their walking speed and check for changes over time, which could be an early indicator of impending cognitive decline.
Too much uncontrolled brain activity in specific areas could lead to cognitive impairments, a new study reveals.
According to researchers, Cannabidiol, an active compound in cannabis plants, could help to alleviate cognitive impairment in people with schizophrenia.
