Physical activity attenuates age-related biomarker alterations in preclinical AD
Objective: To examine whether engagement in physical activity might favorably alter the agedependent evolution of Alzheimer disease (AD)-related brain and cognitive changes in a cohort of at-risk, late-middle-aged adults. Methods: Three hundred seventeen enrollees in the Wisconsin Registry for Alzheimer’s Prevention underwent T1 MRI; a subset also underwent ¹¹C-Pittsburgh compound B–PET (n = 186) and […]
Cognitive training enhances pre-attentive neurophysiological responses in older adults ‘at risk’ of dementia
Background: With predicted increases in dementia incidence, interventions targeting neuroplasticity and neuroprotection are required. Cognitive Training (CT) is an intervention which has been shown to improve aspects of cognition, but the pathophysiological mechanisms contributing to its efficacy are unknown. Objective:We aimed to explore the neurobiological correlates of CT using Mismatch Negativity (MMN), a neurophysiological marker […]
