Abstract

White matter hyperintensities (WMHs) are often observed on cerebral magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of elderly individuals. Epidemiological studies have shown that age and hypertension are associated with WMHs, suggesting a vascular mechanism in WMH pathogenesis. In a population-based ...read more

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.
