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.
Study reports modifying twelve risk factors over your lifetime could reduce dementia risk by 40%.
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.
A new machine learning study has revealed a novel combination of factors that can increase a person's risk of developing dementia.
While genetics may increase your risk of developing dementia, other factors such as lifestyle and environment may play a key role in the development and progression of Alzheimer's disease.
A new test reveals an association between poor lifestyle choices and an increased risk of cognitive decline leading to dementia.
Researchers report, for those with a genetic mutation that causes Alzheimer's disease, 2.5 hours of physical activity per week may delay cognitive decline and have beneficial effects on tau in the brain. They speculate the same may be true for those with more common forms of the neurodegenerative disease.
Older adults with more natural teeth are better able to carry out simple everyday tasks like cooking and cleaning compared to those who have lost their teeth, a new study reports. Researchers found a causal link between tooth loss and functional capacity in older adults. Tooth loss was also associated with a decline in social activity.
Those with a genetic predisposition to frontotemporal dementia (FTD) can become resilient to the neurodegenerative disease by remaining physically and mentally active.
