Stressful Life Events and Racial Disparities in Cognition Among Middle-Aged and Older Adults

Journal of Alzheimer's Disease : JAD

Megan ZuelsdorffCarey E Gleason

Abstract

It is well-documented that African Americans have elevated risk for cognitive impairment and dementia in late life, but reasons for the racial disparities remain unknown. Stress processes have been linked to premature age-related morbidity, including Alzheimer's and related dementias (A...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.

Alzheimer's Disease: RNA Regulation

RNA regulation involves several mechanisms that are used by cells to decreases or increase the production of RNA. Issues with RNA regulation are associated with Alzheimer's Disease (AD). Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to RNA regulation and this disease.

Alzheimer's Disease: Abeta

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a chronic neurodegenerative disease associated with accumulation of amyloid plaques, which are comprised of amyloid beta. Here is the latest research in this field.

Alzheimer's disease is a chronic neurodegenerative disease. This feed focuses on the underlying role of Tau proteins and TAR DNA-binding protein 43, as well as other genetic factors, in Alzheimer's.

Decision Making & Cognitive Aging

While abilities like vocabulary resist aging, other abilities such as memory, decision-making, and reasoning, gradually decline. Here is the latest research on decision-making and cognitive aging.
