There are two types: our short term (or working memory) and long-term memory. Short-term memory is how we remember things temporarily, and it is thought that we can hold around seven items here at any one time. When we no longer need this information however, it leaves us – unless it makes it to our long-term memory. When we keep coming back to information, this can be committed to a more permanent part of our brain. There are many ways that we can boost our brain power and improve our short and long-term memory, so here are seven ways that you can start today! Eating brain foods There are some foods considered to be better than others for our memory, and therefore the preservation of our brains. According to research, the following “superfoods” can help: Green, leafy vegetables: These, as well as other plant-based foods, can potentially help your memory. This is because they are rich in healthy nutrients that are thought to slow cognitive decline. Berries: We hear a lot about flavonoids when it comes to our brain, which are the natural plant pigments in berries. In a 2012 study published in the Annals of Neurology, researchers found tha...

Authors: Jen R, Orr JE, Li Y, DeYoung P, Smales E, Malhotra A, Owens RL Abstract The co-existence of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), termed the overlap syndrome (OVS), is associated with adverse outcomes that may be reversed with treatment. However, diagnosis is limited by the apparent need for in-laboratory polysomnography (PSG). WatchPAT is a portable diagnostic device that is validated for the diagnosis of OSA that might represent an attractive tool for the diagnosis of OVS.Subjects with established COPD were recruited from a general population. Subjects underwent ...

ConclusionThis is the first study to prospectively demonstrates that CBT-I is feasible in people with MS and produces promising improvements in insomnia severity, sleep quality, sleep self-efficacy and comorbid symptoms of fatigue, depression, and anxiety. Future studies are needed to determine mechanisms for these improvements and expand the scope of individuals with MS who may benefit from CBT-I. Furthermore, considering the moderate to large improvements experienced by the brief education group and the limited number of CBT-I providers, a stepped-care approach warrants consideration. Trial Registry: ClinicalTrials.gov, ...

Depression is a common comorbidity in dementia. Randomised controlled studies of antidepressants do not show a significant improvement in depressive symptoms in patients with comorbid dementia and are known to lead to an increase in side effects. However, there are relatively few studies of depression in dementia, and drawing firm conclusions about the use of antidepressants is limited by the amount of data available. Furthermore, it is unclear whether data can be extrapolated from similar populations (eg, those with late-life depression) to inform pharmacotherapy in this patient group. Given the lack of effectiveness and ...

The main pathological characteristics of PD consist of the loss of dopaminergic neurons and the formation of alpha-synuclein-containing Lewy bodies in the substantia nigra. Currently, the main therapeutic method for PD is anti-Parkinson medications, including levodopa, madopar, sirelin, and so on. However, the effect ...
