Abstract

Memory loss and similar cognitive associated dysfunctions are commonly recognized as being the most serious symptoms of ageing and dementia. In this work, a deterioration of cognitive function which is appreciated in old rats (learning test in a maze--or, in aged humans, memory verbal t...read more

Memory: Long-Term

Memory refers to the encoding, storage, and retrieval of information. Here is the latest research on aspects that underlie long-term memory formation and loss.

Aging-Associated Metabolic Disorders

Age is associated with many metabolic disorders including cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes, stroke and heart disease. The mediators in aging process have been suggested to play a part in the cellular processes responsible for these metabolic disorders. Here is the latest research on aging-associated metabolic disorders.

Cell Aging (Keystone)

This feed focuses on cellular aging with emphasis on the mitochondria, autophagy, and metabolic processes associated with aging and longevity. Here is the latest research on cell aging.

Basal Ganglia

Basal Ganglia are a group of subcortical nuclei in the brain associated with control of voluntary motor movements, procedural and habit learning, emotion, and cognition. Here is the latest research.

Cell Aging

Paranoid Disorders

Paranoid disorders are psychiatric disorders with the suspicion and belief that others are plotting against them, leading to mistrust of others. These symptoms of paranoia can be seen in other psychiatric disorders including dementia and schizophrenia. Here is the latest research on paranoid disorders.

Frontotemporal Dementia

Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) refers to disorders caused by progressive neuronal loss in the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain. Here is the latest research on FTD and FTD-associated disorders.

Aging Epidemiology

This feed focuses on epidemiology of aging and aging-related conditions, including Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and age-associated cognitive impairment. Here is the latest research.

Limbic System

The limbic system is comprised of several different parts of the brain involved in emotion, motivation, learning, and memory. Discover the latest research on the limbic system here.

Aging Epidemiology

This feed focuses on epidemiology of aging and aging-related conditions, including Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and age-associated cognitive impairment. Here is the latest research.

Brain Aging

Here is the latest research on intrinsic and extrinsic factors, as well as pathways and mechanisms that underlie aging in the central nervous system.

Age-related Dementia

Age-related dementia (Alzheimer's disease) results from the destructive impact of the pulse on cerebral vasculature. Evidence is reviewed that the neuropathology of the dementia is caused by the breakdown of small cerebral vessels (silent microbleeds), that the microbleeds result from pulse-induced damage to the cerebral vessels, and that pulse becomes increasingly destructive with age, because of the age-related stiffening of the aorta and great arteries, which causes an increase in the intensity of the pressure pulse. Discover the latest research on age-related dementia here.

Neurocognition and Behaviour

This feed focuses on neurobehavioral manifestations, neurocognitive development, and cognition disorders. Here is the latest research.
