A pilot study shows promise for age-related cognitive diseases

The results of the study appeared online October 10 in Neuroscience Letters.[1]

It’s well known that the brains of mediators change, but it’s not entirely clear what those changes mean or how the changes might benefit the mediator. A new pilot study led by researchers at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Centre suggests that the brain changes associated with meditation and stress reduction may play an important role in slowing the progression of age-related cognitive disorders like Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia’s.

A presentation at the American Academy of Neurologys 64th Annual Meeting in 2012 suggests that simple tests performed in clinics may provide insights into future stroke and dementia risk.[1]

Simple tests such as walking speed and hand grip strength may help doctors determine how likely it is a middle-aged person will develop dementia or stroke.
