*  WBHI Think Tank | Cocoa flavanols may reverse age-related memory decline
Published on: October 27, 2014. by Medical XPress:. Dietary cocoa flavanols-naturally occurring bioactives found in cocoa-reversed age-related memory decline in healthy older adults, according to a study led by Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) scientists. The study, published today in the advance online issue of Nature Neuroscience, provides the first direct evidence that one component of age-related memory decline in humans is caused by changes in a specific region of the brain and that this form of memory decline can be improved by a dietary intervention.. As people age, they typically show some decline in cognitive abilities, including learning and remembering such things as the names of new acquaintances or where one parked the car or placed one's keys. This normal age-related memory decline ...

*  Frontiers | Less efficient pattern separation may contribute to age-related spatial memory deficits | Frontiers in Aging...
Spatial memory deficits have been well documented in older adults and may serve as an early indicator of mild cognitive impairment or Alzheimer's disease in some individuals. Pattern separation is a critical mechanism for reducing potential interference among similar memory representations to enhance memory accuracy. A small but growing literature indicates that spatial pattern separation may become less efficient as a result of normal aging, possibly due to age-related changes in subregions of the hippocampus. This decreased efficiency in spatial pattern separation may be a critical processing deficit that could be a contributing factor to spatial memory deficits and episodic memory ...

*  Functional neuroimaging in memory and memory disturbances
During the past years brain imaging techniques like positron emission tomography (PET) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) became more and more important for gaining new insights into processes of and circuits for memory encoding and retrieval. These findings also had a great impact on a better understanding of memory dysfunctions and their underlying brain mechanisms. In the present review, data on memory dysfunctions are analyzed separately according to whether they are of an organic, or a psychiatric psychogenic etiology. Studies examining patients with various forms of amnesia and dementia, for whom functional brain imaging data were available, indicate early functional brain changes. These early changes differ from subsequent structural brain changes and therefore support the clinical and diagnostic use of functional brain imaging ...

In three experiments, we assessed transitive inference performance as a function of awareness that the elements of the task could be arranged in a hierarchy. In experiment 1, which involved a five-item transitive inference task, aware participants performed well on the transitive probe pair BD, but unaware participants performed at chance. Experiment 2 used a six-item transitive inference task (with three transitive probe pairs) and yielded similar results. In experiment 3, memory-impaired patients were given a five-item transitive inference task. On the transitive probe pair BD, controls performed like the participants in experiments 1 and 2. Specifically, aware controls performed well, and unaware controls performed poorly. Memory-impaired patients had difficulty learning the premise pairs and did not reach criterion, even after 2 training days.. Our results are consistent with previous findings that aware ...

*  Hypertension Accelerates the Progression of Alzheimer-Like Pathology in a Mouse Model of the DiseaseNovelty and Significance |...
In patients, hypertension is associated with memory, attention, and processing speed deficits, which are cognitive domains similarly affected in AD.14 In line with these observations, we determined that hypertension accelerated the development of cognitive deficit in AD&HT mice through inducing cognitive impairment as early as at the age of 4.5 months. Spatial learning deficits in the Morris water-maze, Y-maze, and contextual fear task had been reported in APPPS1 mice.12,15 These deficits were detected in 8-month-old but not in younger APPPS1 mice. The episodic memory impairment is a cardinal symptom of AD and precedes a more global cognitive impairment.16,17 Using the episodic-like memory test, we found that AD&HT mice showed impaired temporal order memory compared with both the WT and HT ...

*  Depression, APOE genotype and subjective memory impairment: a cross-sectional study in an African-Caribbean population. -...
BACKGROUND: Subjective memory impairment (SMI) is common in older populations but its aetiology and clinical significance is uncertain. Depression has been reported to be strongly associated with SMI. Associations with objective cognitive impairment are less clear cut. Other factors suggested to be associated with SMI include poor physical health and the apolipoprotein E (APOE) epsilon4 allele. Studies of SMI have been predominantly confined to white Caucasian populations. METHOD: A community study was carried out in a UK African-Caribbean population aged 55-75, sampled from primary care lists. Twenty-three per cent were classified with SMI. Depression was defined using the 10-item Geriatric Depression Scale. Other aetiological factors investigated were education, objective cognitive function, APOE genotype, disablement and vascular disease/risk. The principal analysis was restricted to 243 participants scoring | 20 on the Mini-Mental State Examination ...

Memory loss is common in older adults and is usually noted by either the adults or their family members and friends. Persons with clinically meaningful memory loss usually show delayed recall or impaired ability to remember recently learned information. Another consideration in patients with memory loss is a problem in another cognitive area that manifests as a memory problem. Language impairment or inattention related to depression are two of a number of causes that may present as memory problems. Karlawish and Clark reviewed the evaluation of older adults with mild memory complaints.. Normal aging resulting in frontal lobe decline can cause memory lapses, ...

*  Sharper Image-Do More Studies Improve Picture of Cognitive Decline? | ALZFORUM
When a patient steps into the doctor's office and complains of memory problems, it would be nice if a few brain scans could reliably predict the person's risk of future dementia. Don't expect a single technique to win crystal ball status, but a recent batch of imaging studies suggests that the idea of combining methods to foretell impending Alzheimer disease is becoming less utopian. In last week's Neurology, scientists present data to strengthen the case that subjective memory complaints may be visualized as specific brain pathologies. In a separate study of patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI), a new statistical approach suggests that rates of whole brain atrophy predict progression to AD. Periventricular white matter lesions could also provide a means for distinguishing progressors from non-progressors, according to another recent paper. Meanwhile, a multi-modal imaging study using data from the ...

Results No behavioural abnormalities were observed, either at the height of infection (10 days) or following bacterial clearance (30 days), in C rodentium-infected C57BL/6 mice. When infected mice were exposed to acute stress, however, memory dysfunction was apparent after infection (10 days and 30 days). Memory dysfunction was prevented by daily treatment of infected mice with probiotics. Memory was impaired in germ-free mice, with or without exposure to stress, in contrast to conventionally reared, control Swiss-Webster mice with an intact intestinal microbiota. ...
