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
TY - JOUR. T1 - A critical review of brain and cognitive reserve in Huntingtons disease. AU - Soloveva, Maria V.. AU - Jamadar, Sharna D.. AU - Poudel, Govinda. AU - Georgiou-Karistianis, Nellie. PY - 2018/5/1. Y1 - 2018/5/1. N2 - The reserve hypothesis posits that the brain undergoes structural and functional reorganisation to actively cope with brain damage or disease. 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 ...
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.
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. I am convinced that a large part of the treatment response in DMT trials is driven by recovery of function, which may explain why in almost all studies the older you are the less effective the DMT. This is particularly evident in progressive MS trials, for example in the rituximab, ocrelizumab and siponimod trials. The implications of this is that when one these drugs get to market will NICE, and other payers, dare look at the cost-effectiveness of these treatments in older pwMS and decide that it is simply not worth paying for DMTs if you are above a certain age. ...

Lyta Milton is the biological daughter of Ares and Circe, who hid herself under the identity of a mortal named Donna Milton. As Wonder Womans Lasso of Truth could see through any disguise, Circe cast a spell on herself to truly believe she was Donna until an opportune moment presented itself where she could destroy the Amazon. As Donna Milton she believed herself to be a lawyer working for a Boston crime boss named Ares Buchanan. Unbeknownst to Donna, Ares Buchanan was really the Olympian god Ares in disguise as well. The two formed a sexual relationship once she agreed to help Ares defeat Wonder Woman, who was interrupting his illegal business dealings. After becoming pregnant Donna informed Ares that she was going to have his child. Ares showed Donna that he wasnt interested in fatherhood by shooting Donna in the chest. Because of a weapon used shortly thereafter, a mini-black hole was created that seemingly destroyed Ares and caused the building to fall on top of Donna and Wonder Woman. ...
Potential factors that may promote successful cognitive aging David E VanceCenter for Nursing Research, School of Nursing, Edward R Roybal Center for Translational Research in Aging and Mobility, University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), Birmingham, AL, USAAbstract: With the unprecedented number of older adults worldwide, it is important to consider ways of facilitating successful cognitive aging. One way to think of this is by augmenting or bolstering cognitive reserve. Loosely defined, cognitive reserve is considered a neurological reservoir that can be depleted by physiological insults (eg, white matter hyperintensities, oxidative stress) to the brain but yet maintain optimal cognitive functioning. Cognitive reserve is built up or depleted by processes of positive and negative neuroplasticity, respectively. Lifestyle factors such as physical exercise (+), mental stimulation (+), good sleep hygiene (+), substance abuse (-), sedentary lifestyle (-), chronic stress and depression (-), social isolation

India is the classic land of multilingualism. India is so multilingual and that for such a long time that multilingualism is hardly an "issue". Alongside Indo-Germanic Sanskrit there is the group of Dravidic languages in the south of the subcontinent, whose users point out with pride that their language is much older even than Sanskrit. It is known from the Mogul courts that they employed dubash - the name du bash = two languages indicates the activity. They played a very important role in understanding and communication and thus had considerable power over the relationship between people. One person who we know used this power and influenced the course of history is the Aztec princess La Malinche.. A lover of Cortéz, she continues to live in what is today Mexico, where "malinchismo" is used to describe an exaggerated affection for things foreign. Where people speak, stories will emerge, and the "Dubash" project was intended to inspire writers to write short stories on multilingualism ...
Background: Alzheimer disease (AD) is a progressive, late-life neurodegenerative disorder. Given the aging population, AD is a significant health concern. According to the Alzheimer Society of Canada (Smetanin et al., 2009), in 25 years 2.8% of the Canadian population will have AD or a related dementia. Presently, there is no cure for AD; therefore, efforts to either delay AD onset or prevent AD altogether are a primary focus. The ability to proficiently speak many languages has been associated with certain cognitive advantages. Based on these findings, multilinguals are hypothesized to be more resistant to cognitive decline than monolinguals. More research is warranted in order to further this theory and to contribute to strategies to prevent or delay AD. Objectives: The first study objective was to evaluate whether multilingualism was associated with the development of AD. The second study objective was to assess whether multilingualism was associated with later dementia onset. Methods: ...

Yaakov Stern is a professor of clinical neuropsychology in the Departments of Neurology, Psychiatry, and Psychology at the Taub Institute for the Research on Alzheimers Disease and the Aging Brain, at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. Dr. Stern also directs the Cognitive Neuroscience Division of the Sergievsky Center and is the director of neuropsychology for the Memory Disorders Clinic at the New York State Psychiatric Institute. Sterns research focuses on a concept called cognitive reserve, which accounts for the individual differences in task performance, specifically why some individuals show more cognitive deficit than others given the same degree of brain pathology from Alzheimers disease or given the same amount of sleep deprivation. Stern also studies potential non-pharmacologic interventions that might improve cognition in normal aging processes. Dr. Stern received his PhD in 1983 from the Experimental Cognition Program at City University of New York. He has
Nothing terrible was happening Imatinib Mesylate structure so I wouldnt call them nightmares. I was simply back in the ICU, watching the goings-on in the middle of the night �C the patient checks, the new admissions, the small disputes and dramas. The result wasnt a serious dysfunction but merely a dearth of sleep for a year after discharge, as I would wake and stay awake every night. Many of those affected by post-ICU PTSD suffer much more debilitating effects.What all of this points to is that it is clear that inquiry needs to be conducted not just into the physical factors that might influence the neurocognitive outcomes for those who have been critically ill �C factors about individuals such as increasing age and prior cognitive reserve, genetic factors that might influence responses to injury and capacity to repair, and external factors such as the extent, duration, and nature of specific metabolic events and sedative regimens..
