Cocoa consumption could reduce inflammation and epigenetic aging, ultimately reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease and other diseases associated with aging.
Older adults who frequently connect with friends and others in social situations perform better on cognitive function tests than those who are not so social.
A new study on aging reveals a surprising discovery about the connection between protein shape and mitochondrial health.
Socially isolated older adults are more likely to die when admitted to ICU or face an increased risk of disability once discharged than those who have social support.
Researchers reveal the neurobiological basis of why we often find it more difficult to find the right words as we age.
A new study of older adults who relocated reveals certain areas and locations can enhance longevity more than others.
Working until the age of 67 slows cognitive decline and appears to be neuroprotective against cognitive impairments and dementias.
A mixed set of daily activities can prompt both positive and negative activities, but that’s not a bad thing, researchers say.
Frequent consumption of alcohol during adolescence and young adulthood was associated with accelerated arterial stiffening, a precursor of cardiovascular disease.
Hearing loss was associated with an increased risk of depression in older adults. Those of lower socioeconomic status were twice as likely to report symptoms of depression. However, using hearing aids helped alleviate symptoms of depression.
Mindfulness and meditation may offer small but significant benefits to cognition, especially in older adults.
Orienting and executive inhibition, two key brain functions associated with attending to new information and focusing on important aspects of a situation, can improve in older individuals. These functions underlie aspects of cognition, including memory…
Substituting 10% of daily caloric intake from processed and red meats with legumes, nuts, and seafood can reduce your dietary carbon footprint by one-third, and add 48 “healthy minutes” to your daily life.
The way in which the brain’s wiring aligns with patterns of activity may vary with age, sex, and genetics. The alignments may have implications on cognition, researchers report.
Having at least one person you can rely on to listen to your concerns when you need to talk can help improve cognitive resilience and stave off cognitive decline associated with neurodegeneration and aging.
The gut microbiome can be harnessed to reverse age-related brain deterioration and restore cognitive function, researchers report.
The older an adult believes a Black child to be, the more likely they are to believe the child is exhibiting angry emotions, even when they are not. The same emotional perception shift does not occur when an adult sees an image of a white child.
New mothers who sleep less than seven hours a night six months after giving birth had an increase in biological age of between three to seven years compared to new moms who slept for seven or more hours.
Lower blood levels of amyloid-beta 42 during mid-life were associated with a higher risk of dementia and a marginally increased risk of mild cognitive impairment later in life, a new study reports.
Study establishes a comprehensive single-nucleus transcriptomic atlas of the aging primate hippocampus and provides key information about age-related molecular signatures at the single-cell level.
