Carotid artery atherosclerosis, MRI indices of brain ischemia, aging, and cognitive impairment: the Framingham study

Stroke; a Journal of Cerebral Circulation

Mar 7, 2009

José R RomeroPhilip Wolf

Abstract

Carotid atherosclerosis has been associated with increased risk of stroke and poorer cognitive performance in older adults. The relation of carotid atherosclerosis to cognitive impairment and MRI indices of ischemia and aging in midlife is less clear. We studied 1975 Framingham Offsprin...read more

Carotid artery disease is a group of pathological conditions of the carotid artery. Discover the latest research on carotid artery disease here.

Atherosclerosis Disease Progression

Atherosclerosis is the buildup of plaque on artery walls, causing stenosis which can eventually lead to clinically apparent cardiovascular disease. Find the latest research on atherosclerosis disease progression here.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Brain

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive imaging technique that uses a powerful magnetic field and radio waves to generate images of the area of interest. MRI of the brain is commonly performed to visualize the brain and related structures in detail. Discover the latest research of MRI and the brain here.

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.

Brain Ischemia

Brain ischemia is a condition in which there is insufficient blood flow to the brain to meet metabolic demand. Discover the latest research on brain ischemia here.
