Those with a genetic predisposition to frontotemporal dementia (FTD) can become resilient to the neurodegenerative disease by remaining physically and mentally active.
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.
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 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.
A new study reports lifestyle choices, such as smoking or drinking alcohol during early adulthood, can increase the risk of developing dementia or having a stroke later in life.
A new study sheds light into the link between lifestyle and the risk of developing dementia.
Researchers have released data from the world's largest brain and body scanning study.
