Cognitive reserve in aging. (7/57)

Cognitive reserve explains why those with higher IQ, education, occupational attainment, or participation in leisure activities evidence less severe clinical or cognitive changes in the presence of age-related or Alzheimer's disease pathology. Specifically, the cognitive reserve hypothesis is that individual differences in how tasks are processed provide reserve against brain pathology. Cognitive reserve may allow for more flexible strategy usage, an ability thought to be captured by executive functions tasks. Additionally, cognitive reserve allows individuals greater neural efficiency, greater neural capacity, and the ability for compensation via the recruitment of additional brain regions. Taking cognitive reserve into account may allow for earlier detection and better characterization of age-related cognitive changes and Alzheimer's disease. Importantly, cognitive reserve is not fixed but continues to evolve across the lifespan. Thus, even late-stage interventions hold promise to boost cognitive reserve and thus reduce the prevalence of Alzheimer's disease and other age-related problems.  (+info)

Since then, research has shown that people with greater cognitive reserve are better able to stave off the degenerative brain changes associated with dementia or other brain diseases, such as Parkinsons disease, multiple sclerosis, or a stroke. A more robust cognitive reserve can also help you function better for longer if youre exposed to unexpected life events, such as stress, surgery, or toxins in the environment. Such circumstances demand extra effort from your brain-similar to requiring a car to engage another gear. When the brain cannot cope, you can become confused, develop delirium, or show signs of disease. Therefore, an important goal is to build and sustain your cognitive reserve. You can get a rough idea of your cognitive reserve simply by gauging how much your education, work, and other activities have challenged your brain over the years. Our six-step program will help you improve your cognitive reserve ...
The protective effect of education has been well established in Alzheimers disease, whereas its role in patients with isolated cerebrovascular diseases remains unclear. We examined the correlation of education with cortical thickness and cerebral small vessel disease markers in patients with pure subcortical vascular mild cognitive impairment (svMCI) and patients with pure subcortical vascular dementia (SVaD). We analyzed 45 patients with svMCI and 47 patients with SVaD with negative results on Pittsburgh compound B positron emission tomographic imaging who underwent structural brain magnetic resonance imaging. The main outcome was cortical thickness measured using surface-based morphometric analysis. We also assessed the volumes of white matter hyperintensities (WMH) and numbers of lacunes as other outcomes. To investigate the correlation of education with cortical thickness, WMH volume, and number of lacunes, multiple linear regression analyses were performed after controlling for covariates,
Results:. Typical AD was found in 59 patients (48%); 29 (24%) patients had limbic-predominant AD; 19 (15%) had hippocampal-sparing AD; and 16 (13%) belonged to the group with minimal atrophy. No differences were found regarding cognitive test results or progression rates between the different subtypes. Using adjusted logistic regression analysis, we found that the patients in the minimal-atrophy group were less educated, had a lower baseline CDR. sum of boxes score, and had higher levels of amyloid β in the cerebrospinal fluid.. ...
The impact of employment on cognition and cognitive reserve: implications across diseases and aging David E Vance,1 Jennifer Bail,1 Comfort C Enah,1 Jennifer J Palmer,2 Anna K Hoenig1 1School of Nursing, University of Alabama at Birmingham, 2School of Nursing, University of Alabama in Huntsville, Huntsville, AL, USA Abstract: Employment requires one to learn new skills, establish a routine, and engage socially, all of which can also provide purpose or meaning to one’s life and provide income. All of these can directly or indirectly bolster cognitive reserve, which may protect cognitive health, especially as one ages. Unfortunately, if one is incapacitated due to illness, such as depression, HIV, or other diseases and chronic conditions, it may necessitate reduction/withdrawal from employment, which could limit employment-induced cognitive health benefits. This article examines these issues within the framework of neuroplasticity and cognitive reserve, thus providing implications for practice and

Consistent with passive and active components of reserve the brain moderates its biological substrates (brain reserve) and differentially changes the level of neural activity in tasks-specific networks and/or by recruiting additional non-task related brain regions (cognitive reserve) to optimise behavioural performance. How the reserve hypothesis applies in neurodegenerative disorders such as Huntingtons disease (HD) remains unknown. We postulate that unless the reserve hypothesis is tested empirically, it is impossible to draw firm conclusions about how task-related neural activity is providing a neuroplastic change ...

This study investigates how cognitive reserve (CR) interacts with neurodegeneration (quantified by medial temporal atrophy, MTA) and macroscopic white matter lesions (WMLs) in delaying the conversion from amnestic mild cognitive impairment to Alzheimers disease (AD). Forty-two amnestic mild cognitive impairment patients were consecutively recruited. They underwent magnetic resonance imaging and a comprehensive questionnaire to classify them as individuals with low or high CR. Patients were then clinically followed-up for 2 years. The patients risk for conversion to AD because of CR was estimated by controlling for cognitive efficiency, MTA, and WMLs at baseline. Global cognition was the best predictor of conversion to AD in low CR patients. Conversely, in high CR patients only, WMLs (but not MTA) highly contributed in increasing the risk for conversion to AD. In conclusion, CR interacts with both patients cognitive features and WMLs in modulating the impact of AD pathology. This seems ...

Decreased hippocampal volume in older adults is associated with episodic memory decline and subsequent neurodegenerative diseases. According to the dynamic polygon hypothesis, strategies that increase neurogenesis of the hippocampus are likely to be successsful in delaying the onset of cognitive impairment in ageing. Several modifiable factors can have a positive effect on the size of the hippocampus, one of them being cognitive reserve. However, to date, very few studies reported an impact of cognitive reserve on hippocampal volume in healthy older adults. Therefore, the main objective of our study was to explore whether cognitive reserve is linked to hippocampal volume in healthy aging. We focussed particularly on intellectual and social ...
METHODS: Forty MSers underwent baseline and 4.5-year follow-up evaluations of cognitive efficiency (Symbol Digit Modalities Test, Paced Auditory Serial Addition Task) and memory (Selective Reminding Test, Spatial Recall Test). Baseline and follow-up MRIs quantified disease progression: percentage brain volume change (cerebral atrophy), percentage change in T2 lesion volume. MLBG (brain reserve) was estimated with intracranial volume; intellectual enrichment (cognitive reserve) was estimated with vocabulary. We performed repeated-measures analyses of covariance to investigate whether larger MLBG and/or greater intellectual enrichment moderate/attenuate cognitive decline over time, controlling for disease progression. ...
The researchers proposed that age and HIV infection have additive adverse effects on successful cognitive aging. Higher levels of cognitive reserve may play an important protective role in SCA-ANDS across the lifespan, they observed, particularly among older persons living with HIV. The UCSD team suggested that interventions aimed at improving and maintaining cognitive reserve to bolster successful cognitive aging throughout life may protect against neurocognitive disorders and promote mental well-being. They called for longitudinal studies to chart the course of successful cognitive aging throughout life and to further identify predictors and neurobiological underpinnings ...
BACKGROUND: Potentially modifiable lifestyle factors may influence cognitive health in later life and offer potential to reduce the risk of cognitive decline and dementia. The concept of cognitive reserve has been proposed as a mechanism to explain individual differences in rates of cognitive decline, but its potential role as a mediating pathway has seldom been explored using data from large epidemiological studies. We explored the mediating effect of cognitive reserve on the cross-sectional association between lifestyle factors and cognitive function in later life using data from a population-based cohort of healthy older people. METHODS AND FINDINGS: We analysed data from 2,315 cognitively healthy participants aged 65 y and over in the Cognitive Function and Ageing Study Wales (CFAS-Wales) cohort collected in 2011-2013. Linear regression modelling was used to investigate the overall associations between five lifestyle factors-cognitive and social activity, physical activity, diet, alcohol ...

Converging evidence suggests that high levels of education and intellectual activity increase the cognitive reserve and reduce the risk of dementia. However, little is known about the impact that different neuroprotective strategies may have on the incidence of Alzheimers disease. Using a simple mathematical regression model, it is shown here that age-specific counts of basic cognitive units (surrogate of neurons or synapses) in the normal population can be estimated from Alzheimers incidence rates. Hence, the model can be used to test the effect of neuroprotection on Alzheimers incidence. It was found that the number of basic cognitive units decreases with age, but levels off in older people. There were no gender differences after correcting for survival. The model shows that even modest neuroprotective effects on basic cognitive units can lead to dramatic reductions in the number of Alzheimers cases. Most remarkably, a 5% increase in the cognitive reserve would prevent one third of Alzheimers
Postoperative Delirium or PD and Postoperative Cognitive Dysfunction or POCD are syndromes of central nervous system dysfunction that significantly complicate the recovery of a proportion of elderly patients following surgery.. Delirium is typically a transient syndrome characterized by a de-novo appearance of several pathognomonic behaviors, including disorientation, decreased attention span, sensory misperceptions, a waxing-and-waning type of confusion, and disorganized thinking. PD typically occurs on postoperative days 1 to 3 and is associated with prolonged hospital stays, increased risks for morbidity and mortality and significant health care expenditures.. The neuroendocrine stress response to surgery, including the immediate postoperative period, remains an important potential etiologic factor. In particular, our data suggests that stress in the immediate postoperative period is poorly controlled by all anesthetic techniques and the normal diurnal variation in cortisol is suppressed in ...

The term cognitive training (also called brain training or neurobics) reflects a hypothesis that cognitive abilities can be maintained or improved by exercising the brain, in an analogy to the way physical fitness is improved by exercising the body. Although there is strong evidence that aspects of brain structure remain plastic throughout life, and that high levels of mental activity are associated with reduced risks of age-related dementia, scientific support for the concept of brain fitness is limited. The term is infrequently used in academic literature, but is commonly used in the context of self-help books and commercial products. Cognitive reserve is the capacity of a person to meet the various cognitive demands of life and is evident in an ability to assimilate information, comprehend relationships, and develop reasonable conclusions and plans. Cognitive training is a hypothesis that certain activities, done regularly, might help maintain or improve cognitive reserve. As of 2016, ...
This is has been discussed endlessly under the so called asynchronous progressive MS hypothesis and length-dependent axonopathy hypothesis. Unfortunately, progression is often primed by previous damage and switching off inflammation now with alemtuzumab is unable to repair the previous damage that has primed neurons and axons to die off over time. This is why we recommend early effective treatment to prevent damage. Another factor that plays out in so called progressive disease is premature ageing. Life is a sexually-transmitted neurodegenerative disease. If we all live long-enough we will see the effects of ageing on the nervous system (poor memory, unsteadiness of gait, poor balance, reduced hearing, etc.). What protects us from age-related neurodegeneration is brain and cognitive reserve. Unfortunately, MS reduces both brain and cognitive reserve and brings ageing forward in time. Alemtuzumab like all other DMTs that have been licensed to treat MS have not been shown to impact on ageing of ...

A recent study shows that you need to use it or lose it also applies to brain function as well. They found that Education, occupation attainment, and leisure activities all contributed to brain reserve. Interesting that education, which generally occurs earlier in life effects brain reserve later in life. Occupational attainment is an interesting one as anyone can climb the ladder, so to speak, in their profession. When this occurs people generally have more complex problems to solve, so increased brain function could be expected. Again leisure activities generally either us the thinking mind (eg board games or jigsaws) or physical part of the brain (eg hand eye coordination). There could also be some cross over, eg you need a strategy, or able to read the play in a team sport ...
PI: Laura Fratiglioni. In this multidisciplinary research project, we seek to identify possible pathways to healthier brain aging.. Studies suggest that over the course of our lives, healthy behaviors lead to the accumulation of brain reserve. That is, they create a better ability to cope with changes in the brain without developing the symptoms of cognitive (mental) decline or dementia. We hypothesize that higher brain reserve reduces the risk of cognitive decline and dementia by improving metabolism and reducing inflammation in the brain. Moreover, we suggest that brain reserve functions independently of other factors that are related to cognitive decline and dementia, including genetic predisposition, vascular burden (lesions in the brain), and the buildup of amyloid (protein fragments) in the brain.. In this 5-year project, we will estimate mental variability in people with differing deposition of amyloid in the brain as detected by positron emission tomography and differing vascular burden ...
Heres the short version: In 1988, autopsies of several elderly people revealed the plaques and tangles associated with Alzheimers disease. However, these individuals, during their lifetimes, had displayed no signs of dementia. It has been hypothesized that theyd been buffered from the effects of the disease by the extra neuronal capacity that they had been born with (brain reserve) or accrued through years of intellectual and physical pursuits (cognitive reserve).. ...
New research combining postmortem examination of brain tissue with testing during life has revealed what researchers believe to be an as-yet unexplained connection: higher levels of physical activity (PA) and motor skills seem to create a cognitive reserve that buoys cognitive performance during life, even in the presence of Alzheimers disease (AD), Lewy body disease, and other brain pathologies associated with dementia.. For the study, published ahead of print in Neurology (abstract only available for free), researchers examined brain tissue from 454 participants involved in the Rush Memory and Aging Project (MAP). The subjects participated in a battery of annual clinical assessments and agreed to brain donation at the time of death. The clinical tests included 21 cognitive assessments, an analysis of 10 motor abilities, and an estimation of total daily PA drawn from accelerometers worn constantly for 10 days (researchers in this study used only the first 7 days data). After death, brain ...

December 23, 2009. Being overweight or obese leads to brain shrinkage in old age and, researchers say, an increased risk of Alzheimers disease. Those are the findings from scientists at the University of California, Los Angeles, and the University of Pittsburgh.. The brains of obese people looked 16 years older than the brains of those who were lean, and in overweight people looked 8 years older, said Paul Thompson, a brain researcher at U.C.L.A. who was the studys senior author. Thats a big loss of tissue, and it depletes your cognitive reserves, putting you at much greater risk of Alzheimers and other diseases that attack the brain.. Using high-resolution brain scans, the researchers found that the brains of those who were overweight or obese shrank by 4 to 8 percent compared to peers who were at a healthy weight. Brain areas that were particularly affected were the frontal lobes and the hippocampus, areas critical for thinking and memory.. Although none of the 94 seniors, ages 70 and ...
Millions of people already have Alzheimers disease and, for those over the age of 65, the disease is the fifth leading cause of death. Heres how brain games can increase your cognitive reserve and potentially ward off the brain-degenerating disease.
The aging process is characterized by the progressive loss of physiological stability, lower physical and cognitive reserve, and increased vulnerability to death. This progressive deterioration in organismal homeostasis is considered the underlying trigger of most chronic diseases like diabetes, neurodegenerative diseases and cancer. Experimental challenges that increase the rate of biological and cognitive decline are linked to accelerated aging while interventions that slow the aging process are accompanied by an extension in healthy lifespan (López-Otín et al., 2013; Kennedy et al., 2014 ...
In the case of the brain, it is very much a use it or lose it situation. It can be questioned whether those who lead more intellectually stimulating lives, challenging their brains, somehow acquire protection from the mental decline that we believe comes naturally with age. This question does not only stand for age but other insults too, from intoxication and head injuries to strokes, Alzheimers and Parkinsons disease.. In its 2015 annual report, the Alzheimers Association estimates that by 2025, the number of people age 65 and older with Alzheimers will reach 7.1 million - a 40% increase from 5.1 million aged 65 and older affected in 2015. Furthermore, it is estimated that 6.8 million people die from neurological disorders each year.. The ideology that those who perform better in academia will suffer to a lesser extent from neurological disease than those who do not is controversial. The theory has been described by scientists as cognitive reserve. This theory suggests that detrimental ...
The feeling of hitting your maximum capacity to remember facts is not a foreign concept to students-especially the night before an exam. Fortunately, ones cognitive reserve is far from rigid.

Age, in particular old age (, 50 years of age), is a poor prognostic factor for MS and for most other neurological disorders. The aged brain does not deal with insults very well. Why? Age chews up brain and cognitive reserve and hence the capacity for the brain to recover from attacks is limited.
