This study examined how longitudinal change in brain microstructure relates to cognitive decline in aging and prodromal Alzheimer's disease. At baseline and two-year follow-up, 29 healthy controls and 21 individuals with mild cognitive impairment or mild Alzheimer's disease underwent neuropsychological evaluation and restriction spectrum imaging (RSI). Microstructural change in the hippocampus, entorhinal cortex, and white matter tracts previously shown to be vulnerable to Alzheimer's disease, was compared between healthy controls and impaired participants. Partial correlations and stepwise linear regressions examined whet...

Middle-aged and worried about your memory slips? You probably don’t have dementia. The majority of the memory slips that concern this age group, and even those significantly older, are due to stress and other factors rather than impending dementia. However, researchers have now found that people who are suffering from memory loss but are unaware of their problem are most likely developing the disease. Read the full article on HealthCentral about awareness and memory loss - and how lack of  this awareness can point to developing dementia: MedicareFAQ – Medicare Resource Center Support a caregiver or jump-st...

DiscussionSYGRAVA is the first randomized trial to determine whether programmable ASDs reduce complications of drainage compared to fixed ASDs in patients with iNPH. The results of this study may contribute to health-technology assessment of different valve systems used for VP-shunt surgery, and determination of the future standard of care.Trial registrationInternational Standard Randomised Controlled Trial Number:ISRCTN13838310.

Cognitive change affecting patients after anaesthesia and surgery has been recognised for more than 100 yr. Research into cognitive change after anaesthesia and surgery accelerated in the 1980s when multiple studies utilised detailed neuropsychological testing for assessment of cognitive change after cardiac surgery. This body of work consistently documented decline in cognitive function in elderly patients after anaesthesia and surgery, and cognitive changes have been identified up to 7.5 yr afterwards. Importantly, other studies have identified that the incidence of cognitive change is similar after non-cardiac surgery. ...

We assessed 40 early stage AD patients and 35 matched healthy volunteers with an emotional version of the Deese-Roediger-McDermott paradigm, which allows the study of false memory formation. Participants were presented with three negative, three neutral and three positive lists of words, each se...
