Brain Exercises May Slow Cognitive Decline Initially, But Speed Up Dementia Later

American Academy of Neurology (AAN)

People Over 80 Often Have Mixed Pathologies in Their Brains That Account for Their Memory Loss, Confusion

LifeBridge Health

Most recent studies show that elderly people over the age of 80 often have mixed pathologies in their brains that account for their memory loss and confusion. Very few senior citizens have “pure Alzheimer disease”; therefore, this terminology should be used with caution. It now appears that vascular problems such as high blood pressure and diabetes can shrink the parts of the brain that control memory and can significantly affect at what age elderly people become demented. The following tips may be able to postpone cognitive decline late in life.
