Higher body fat leads to increased atrophy of the brain's gray matter and a greater risk of cognitive decline, researchers report.
Researchers recreated the damage seen in frontotemporal dementia in brain organoid models. The study reveals an experimental drug designed to treat Crohn's disease may help prevent neuron death associated with FTD.
Previous studies have linked air pollution to an increased risk of Alzheimer's disease and a number of other disorders. Researchers report reducing air pollution significantly decreases dementia risk and slows cognitive decline in older women.
People who drink six or more cups of coffee a day have a 53% increased risk of developing dementia and a higher risk of stroke, a new study reports.
Cognitive decline was associated with accelerated bone loss and an increased risk of fractures in older women.
Researchers report Alzheimer's disease and other neurodegenerative disorders can be confirmed in living patients by specific biomarkers in cerebrospinal fluid.
Mouse and human studies reveal Interleukin-3 may modify immune responses in the brain that cause cell death and lead to Alzheimer's disease.
The desire of older adults to live to an advanced aged was significantly reduced by hypothetical adverse life events, such as the prospects of developing dementia or chronic pain conditions.
A new study reveals adults with ADHD have an increased risk of developing nervous system, respiratory, musculoskeletal, and metabolic diseases. ADHD was also associated with a slightly increased risk of Parkinson's disease, dementia, and cardiovascular disease.
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.
Chronic stress which involves the HPA axis may contribute to the development of Alzheimer's disease, researchers report.
