Identifying the optimal number of individual treatment sessions for those with cognitive decline associated with dementia is crucial for managing the neurodegenerative disease.
A newly developed blood test can measure the pace of biological aging by identifying specific DNA methylation marks.
Stress can be a precursor to other mental health disorders including depression and anxiety, as well as a factor for premature aging. Researchers discuss stress management techniques that can build resilience to stressors and could help protect against…
A new artificial intelligence algorithm analyses MRI data to accurately predict the age of a brain.
Study establishes a robust link between ozone exposure and an increase in cognitive impairment in older adults.
A study of fruit flies reveals how the insects retain neural circuits for certain motor functions while their edge on other functions declines as a result of aging.
Older adults who remain active have more of a class of proteins that enhance synapses to help maintain healthy cognitive function.
Older adults with an academic background showed lower increases of signs of brain degeneration than those who were less educated, a new study reports.
Learning a new language or playing a musical instrument has a positive impact on cognitive function in the aging brain, researchers report.
Study reveals how an enzyme called NOX4 is essential for exercise-induced reactive oxygen species and the adaptive response that drives metabolic health.
Researchers have identified a “sweet spot” during exercise that appears to reverse age-related cognitive decline and improves learning in mouse models.
People suffering from vitamin B12 deficiency are 51% more likely to develop depression over a four-year period. However, as a person’s age increased, the risk of depression decreased.
Work plays an active role in keeping the brain healthy and retaining cognitive abilities as we age, researchers report.
Chronic stress accelerates the body’s epigenetic clock, however, those that can manage the effects of stress by strengthening their emotional regulation and self-control can slow the process.
Older people who experience elevated heart rates are at increased risk for developing dementia, researchers report.
Physical activity appears to reduce microglial activation and improve cognition in the aging human brain, researchers report.
A new framework reveals Alzheimer’s disease is far more complex than previously believed. Rather than being a disease where the same causes produce the same outcomes, researchers found three different models for the disease, each with its own character…
Older adults who continue to perform household chores have better cognition, attention span, and physical strength compared to those who no longer do their own home keeping chores. Housework in older adults was also linked to a decreased risk of falls.
Researchers describe how specific facial features distinguish a child’s face from an adult’s face. The findings may help new technologies to quickly determine if children are depicted in indecent images.
When older couples are close together, their heart rates synchronize in complex patterns of interaction.
