MS researchers determine that brain reserve independently protects against cognitive decline in MS (6/28/2013)

US and Italian researchers have determined that brain reserve, as well as cognitive reserve, independently protects against cognitive decline in MS. Brain reserve and cognitive reserve in MS: What you've got and how you use it, was published June 11. ...> Full Article


Memory improves for older adults using computerized brain-fitness program (6/27/2013)

UCLA researchers have found that older adults who regularly used a brain-fitness program on a computer demonstrated significantly improved memory and language skills. ...> Full Article


Study identifies protein that contributes to cognitive decline in Alzheimer's (6/26/2013)

Researchers have demonstrated that a protein called caspase-2 is a key regulator of a signaling pathway that leads to cognitive decline in Alzheimer's disease. The findings, made in a mouse model of Alzheimer's, suggest that inhibiting this protein could prevent the neuronal damage and subsequent cognitive decline associated with the disease. The study was published this month in the online journal Nature Communications. ...> Full Article


'Singing' rats show hope for older humans with age-related voice problems (6/25/2013)

'Singing' rats show hope for older humans with age-related voice problemsNew research from University of Illinois speech and hearing science professor Aaron Johnson and his University of Wisconsin colleagues shows training rats to "sing" could provide a model for voice therapy that will, in turn, help aging humans with vocal problems. ...> Full Article

Exercise for stroke patients' brains (6/14/2013)

The researchers found that while the typical brain responded to the visual stimulus with activity in cortical motor regions that are generally activated when we watch others perform actions, in the stroke-affected brain, activity was strongest in these regions of the damaged hemisphere, and strongest when stroke patients viewed actions they would have the most difficulty performing. ...> Full Article


New method successfully scores joint damage in rheumatoid arthritis (6/13/2013)

New study explains cognitive ability differences among the elderly (6/8/2013)

A new study shows compelling evidence that associations between cognitive ability and cortical grey matter in old age can largely be accounted for by cognitive ability in childhood. The joint study by the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital, The Neuro, McGill University and the University of Edinburgh, UK was published today, June 4 in Molecular Psychiatry. ...> Full Article


Doctors should screen for frailty to prevent deaths (6/7/2013)

Doctors should screen for frailty to prevent deathsBetween five and 10 percent of those older than 70 are frail and at increased risk of death, debilitation and hospitalizations. The medical condition is treatable, writes a Saint Louis University physician in a consensus article from representatives of six international and national medical societies. Doctors need to screen everyone 70 and older for physical frailty. ...> Full Article
