Chronic Pain Linked to Increased Risk of Dementia

Chronic pain linked to increased risk of dementia in study of older adults Published: Wednesday 7 June 2017 Adapted Media Release Source: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/releases/317805.php Researchers at UC San Francisco have found that older people with persistent pain show quicker declines in memory as they age and are more likely to have dementia years later, an indication that chronic pain could somehow be related to changes in the brain that contribute to dementia. The study, published in JAMA Internal Medicine, appears to be the first to make this association. The researchers analyzed data from 10,000 participants aged 60 and up over a 12-year...

SuperAger brains shrink more slowly than peers' brains

alzheimers brain brain health dementia dha nrf2 SuperAger

Cortex of super-aged brain deteriorated much slower than average elderly brain over time. Published: Thursday 6 April 2017 Source: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/releases/316787.php ---  Donald Tenbrunsel is 89 years old, but he is just as likely to talk to you about Chance the Rapper as reminisce about Frank Sinatra. The highly engaged and delightful conversationalist, who reads, volunteers and routinely researches questions on the Internet, is part of a new path-breaking Northwestern Medicine study that shows that SuperAgers' brains shrink much slower than their age-matched peers, resulting in a greater resistance to "typical" memory loss and dementia. Over the course of the 18-month study,...

Exercise to maintain a healthy brain while aging

Exercise to maintain a healthy brain while aging By Yvette Brazier Published Friday 30 October 2015 Source: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/301629.php  ---  Structural deterioration of the brain associated with old age can be eased by long-term aerobic exercise starting in mid-life, according to research published in PLOS Biology.   Frailty and cognitive decline tend to accompany aging, and exercise is known to combat them. How this works is not completely understood, but the development of dementias such as Alzheimer's disease has been linked with physical inactivity. The risk of dementia increases with age. Age-related cognitive deficits result partly from changes in neuronal function,...
