Stronger Functional Connectivity Linked To Youthful Memory In Older Adults

Communication among neurons in various networks of the brain is associated with “superagers”, older adults who, despite their advanced age, maintain youthful memory, new research indicates. The work is the second in a series of three studies undertaken to unlock the secret of something researchers already knew: that some adults in their 80s and 90s […]

Married People Are Less Likely To Develop Dementia

New research suggests that married people are less likely to experience dementia as they age. On the other hand, divorcees are about twice as likely as married people to develop dementia, the study[1] indicates, with divorced men showing a greater disadvantage than divorced women. “This research is important because the number of unmarried older adults […]

Calcium Is Key To Age-related Memory Loss

As we get older, our memory starts to fail and it becomes harder to learn new things. It would not be unreasonable to assume that this is caused by brain cells gradually dying off but that doesn’t happen. So what causes age-related cognitive impairment? The answer lies in synapses, the electro-chemical connections between neurons that […]

Children Born To Older Parents Tend To Have Fewer Behavior Problems

Children of older parents tend to have fewer externalizing behavior problems than children of younger parents, new research indicates. The researchers also found that parents’ age was unrelated to children’s internalizing behaviors. Researchers at Utrecht University, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Erasmus Medical Center, and University Medical Center Groningen looked at externalizing behaviors (e.g., aggression) and internalizing […]
