Researchers in Singapore have discovered that defects in cellular metabolism become detectable before the appearance of protein plaques characteristic of Alzheimer’s disease.
Midlife obesity may well be a cause of dementia. In contrast, behavioral changes due to preclinical disease could largely or wholly account for associations of low BMI, low caloric intake, and inactivity with dementia detection during the first decade of follow-up.
Scientists have known for decades that aerobic exercise strengthens the brain and contributes to the growth of new neurons, but few studies have examined how yoga affects the brain. A review of the science finds evidence that yoga enhances many of the same brain structures and functions that benefit from aerobic exercise.
If you’re prone to depression, this holiday season you might want to say “bah humbug” to offers of sugar plum pudding, caramel corn and chocolate babka.
We’ve heard from Alzheimer’s caregivers and patients that they want a way to navigate the disease and to plan for the future.
