  • Studies
  • While much research has focused on diseases of aging, there are few informative studies on the molecular biology of the aging brain (usually spelled ageing brain in British English) in the absence of neurodegenerative disease or the neuropsychological profile of healthy older adults. (wikipedia.org)
  • alcoholism
  • Autonomic neuropathies may be the result of an inherited condition or they may be acquired due to various premorbid conditions such as diabetes and alcoholism, bacterial infection such as Lyme disease or a viral illness. (wikipedia.org)
  • factors
  • It is unknown what causes a brain aneurysm, however, research in the field suggests there are both genetic and environmental factors that contribute to their appearance and possible growth and possible rupture. (uic.edu)
  • With the exception of increasing age, none of the evidence for non-genetic risk factors is universally accepted. (rcpsych.org)
  • lacunar infarcts
  • 1 In a systematic review of studies that used echo-planar and gradient recalled-echo sequences at 0.5-3T, hypertensive individuals were reported to be 4 times more likely than those in the general population to have microbleeds, 2 particularly in association with other signs of small-vessel disease, such as white matter hyperintensities and lacunar infarcts. (ajnr.org)
  • vascular
  • While low doses of alcohol have some healthful benefits, the intake of more than three standard drinks per day on a regular basis enhances the risk for cancer and vascular disease, and alcohol use disorders decrease the life span by about 10 years. (mhmedical.com)

  • form
  • Like the blood vessels around which they form, perivascular spaces are found in both the subarachnoid space and the subpial space.Perivascular spaces surrounding arteries in the cerebral cortex and the basal ganglia are separated from the subpial space by one or two layers of leptomeninges, respectively, as well as the pia mater. (wikipedia.org)
