Older adults who undergo cataract surgery are at lower risk of developing dementia compared with those who do not undergo surgery, reports astudy published today inJAMA Internal Medicine. A similar effect was not observed in older adults who received surgery for glaucoma.“These results have implications for the care of older persons who are uniquely at higher risk for both impaired vision due to cataract and impaired cognition due to neurodegeneration observed in age-related dementia,” wrote Cecilia S. Lee, M.D., M.S., of the University of Washington and colleag ues. “Given the substantial degree by which...

Why do only some people develop Alzheimer's disease? Why do only some people with evidence of amyloid and tau protein aggregation in brain tissue also exhibit dementia? These are important questions. Researchers here provide evidence to suggest that whether or not tau protein is isomerized is relevant to the onset and progression of Alzheimer's disease. Isomers of the same molecule have the same molecular weight but a different structure and chemistry. Whether or not isomers of important proteins are present in significant numbers is not well studied in the context of neurodegenerative conditions; perhaps it should be. The...

Aging Ment Health. 2021 Dec 6:1-6. doi: 10.1080/13607863.2021.2008869. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTIn health care, well-being is considered to be composed of multiple interacting dimensions and to regard the subjective (affective and cognitive) evaluation of these dimensions. These dimensions are often referred to as physical, psychological, and social domains of life. Although there are various disease-specific and group-specific conceptual approaches, starting from a universal perspective provides a more inclusive approach to well-being. Indeed, universal approaches to well-being have striking overlaps with dementia-sp...

Front Neurol. 2021 Nov 18;12:741500. doi: 10.3389/fneur.2021.741500. eCollection 2021.ABSTRACTThe development of cognitive dysfunction and dementia is a complex, multifactorial process. One of the contributors to various types of cognitive dysfunction is carotid atherosclerosis which can frequently be seen in asymptomatic individuals. There are a number of different manifestations of asymptomatic carotid atherosclerosis including arterial stiffness, carotid intima-media thickening, flow-limiting stenosis, and complex, atherosclerotic plaque. Each of these forms of atherosclerosis may contribute to cerebral parenchymal dama...

THE BATTLE against dementia is set to become more onerous over the coming decades as populations age. The link between diet and dementia risk is inconclusive, but overdoing a staple ingredient has been shown to cause "faster cognitive decline" in one study.
