Adults who experienced traumatic events, including abuse and household dysfunction, as children had an increased risk of developing neurological conditions later in life. Additionally, researchers found a significant link between childhood trauma and d…
Greater radiodensity of perivascular adipose tissue in women during midlife was associated with decreased working memory performance later in life.
Study reports the MIND diet may help reduce a person’s risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease and help maintain cognition in older adults.
Study reveals a direct link between adherence to the Mediterranean diet and improved cognitive function.
Higher glucose levels detected by a two-hour glucose test were an accurate predictor of poorer performance in tests of episodic memory ten years later.
A new algorithm uses neuroimaging data of amyloid levels in the brain and takes into account a person’s age to determine when a person with genetic Alzheimer’s risk factors, and with no signs of cognitive decline, will develop the disease.
Cocoa consumption could reduce inflammation and epigenetic aging, ultimately reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease and other diseases associated with aging.
Older adults who frequently connect with friends and others in social situations perform better on cognitive function tests than those who are not so social.
A new study on aging reveals a surprising discovery about the connection between protein shape and mitochondrial health.
Socially isolated older adults are more likely to die when admitted to ICU or face an increased risk of disability once discharged than those who have social support.
Researchers reveal the neurobiological basis of why we often find it more difficult to find the right words as we age.
A new study of older adults who relocated reveals certain areas and locations can enhance longevity more than others.
Working until the age of 67 slows cognitive decline and appears to be neuroprotective against cognitive impairments and dementias.
A mixed set of daily activities can prompt both positive and negative activities, but that’s not a bad thing, researchers say.
Frequent consumption of alcohol during adolescence and young adulthood was associated with accelerated arterial stiffening, a precursor of cardiovascular disease.
Hearing loss was associated with an increased risk of depression in older adults. Those of lower socioeconomic status were twice as likely to report symptoms of depression. However, using hearing aids helped alleviate symptoms of depression.
Mindfulness and meditation may offer small but significant benefits to cognition, especially in older adults.
Orienting and executive inhibition, two key brain functions associated with attending to new information and focusing on important aspects of a situation, can improve in older individuals. These functions underlie aspects of cognition, including memory…
Substituting 10% of daily caloric intake from processed and red meats with legumes, nuts, and seafood can reduce your dietary carbon footprint by one-third, and add 48 “healthy minutes” to your daily life.
The way in which the brain’s wiring aligns with patterns of activity may vary with age, sex, and genetics. The alignments may have implications on cognition, researchers report.
