Episodes of low blood pressure in middle age associated with cognitive decline, dementia later!

The findings suggest that these temporary episodes – known as orthostatic hypotension – may cause lasting damage, possibly because they reduce needed blood flow to the brain.

Memory loss not only indicant in Alzheimer's diagnosis

Researchers should not rely on the clinical symptoms of memory loss alone to diagnose Alzheimer's disease because there could be other indicants of the neurodegenerative disease that do not initially affect memory, says a new study.

Sleep deprivation may lead to memory loss

It has been proposed earlier that changes in the connectivity between synapses - structures that allow neurons to pass signals to each other - can affect memory.
