Disputing other findings, researchers report there is no direct link between inflammation and depression. The study reports depression may only have a link to inflammation as a result of specific lifestyle features, such as smoking or obesity.
Researchers have released data from the world's largest brain and body scanning study.
A new study sheds light into the link between lifestyle and the risk of developing dementia.
Making small lifestyle changes, such as improving diet, exercising, enjoying social activities, and reducing blood pressure, can reduce the risk of developing dementia in older people with certain risk factors.
From keeping active and eating a healthy diet to controlling cholesterol and reducing sugar intake, researchers report on seven simple lifestyle changes older adults with genetic risk factors can make to reduce the chance of developing dementia.
According to researchers, there is a strong correspondence between positive lifestyle and behavioral traits and a particular set of connections in the brain.
Those with a genetic predisposition to frontotemporal dementia (FTD) can become resilient to the neurodegenerative disease by remaining physically and mentally active.
According to a new study, those who are aware they are overweight or obese might gain more weight than those who are unaware of their weight problems.
The genes GRB10 and ABTB1 are influential in nutrient-sensing pathways and memory. Researchers say these genes may be the molecular links between diet, neural stem cell aging, and cognitive ability.
Adopting a healthy lifestyle or adopting minor lifestyle changes helps reduce the risks of developing Alzheimer's disease, especially for those from a lower socioeconomic background.
