In patients with mild cognitive impairment, sleep habits are associated with gray matter atrophy and alterations in functional connectivity.
This study looks at how the lack of awareness (anosognosia) of memory impairment evolves in the trajectory of Alzheimer disease.
Longer sleep-onset latency, as monitored by wrist actigraphy, predicts long-term declines in global cognitive function, verbal learning, and memory in Hispanic/Latino adults.
This systematic review identified studies related to late-onset epilepsy (LOE) to investigate the association between LOE and subsequent stroke and Alzheimer dementia.
