A new, freely available brain atlas reveals how brain metabolism changes throughout the life of mice.
A diet high in processed foods leads to neuroinflammation and memory decline in older rats, a new study reports. Supplementing a processed food diet with DHA, an omega 3 fatty acid, helped mitigate memory problems and reduce inflammation.
People whose blood pressure is elevated but still falls within the normal range are at increased risk of accelerated brain aging, researchers report.
Increased accumulation of amyloid beta and a reduction of serotonin in the brains of older adults was associated with higher risks for developing depression later in life.
While sense of purpose and cognitive function improved memory recall, sense of purpose alone boosted vividness and coherence in memory.
A new study reveals an association between high blood pressure in a person’s thirties and forties to smaller brain size and an increased risk of developing dementia later in life.
Women over the age of 70 are more likely than men of the same age to report feeling symptoms of depression.
Depression experienced during early adulthood increases the risk of developing cognitive impairment and dementia later in life, a new study reports.
Feeling content in life slows cognitive decline in older adults, a new study reports. Researchers say the odds of older adults developing cognitive impairment and dementia were reduced in those who reported better psychological well-being.
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.
