In conclusion, memantine combined with citalopram can more effectively improve the cognitive function, and reduce behavioral and psychological symptoms in patients with moderate AD. Cardiac adverse effects of citalopram are not common when the dose is
Many research groups have published evidence to suggest that age-related mitochondrial dysfunction is an important aspect of neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimer's disease. The brain is an energy-hungry organ and mitochondria are the power plants of the cell, responsible for producing the chemical energy store molecules that power cellular activity. It is well known that mitochondrial function declines with age; mitochondria in old tissues are structurally different, and less effective at their jobs. The research results here suggest that this mitochondrial decline has a lot to do with the fact that the ce...

Metabolic syndrome is an emerging epidemic with increasing prevalence in the United States. Multiple studies have explored the relationship between metabolic syndrome, mild cognitive impairment, Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia. Given recent evidence including the review and meta-analysis in this edition of the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry, we suggest that behavioral health specialists consider detection and aggressive management of metabolic syndrome an integral part of any cognitive health protocol.
This study shows that it seems that mental activity is as important as physical activity to preserve or increase the chances of healthy aging.” Similar studies that have looked at the link between physical or mental activity and dementia have not usually included as long an observation period as the new analysis does. Most of those studies also start with people who were much older and who were potentially already affected by different types of dementia. In her analysis, Najar adjusted for the fact that some of the women in the study might already be experiencing early signs of dementia. She also found that exercise ...
