    Sammanfattning : The older population in Thailand is growing, and the number of older people who suffer from health problems is increasing as well. The health situation of the older population challenges healthcare providers to care for older people. Healthy aging is key to promoting the health of older people and sustaining their well-being.

  3. 3. Aerobic fitness and healthy brain aging cognition, brain structure, and dopamine

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Författare :Lars Jonasson; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2017]

    Sammanfattning : Background: Performing aerobic exercise and maintaining high levels of aerobic fitness may have positive effects on both brain structure and function in older adults. Despite decades of research however, there is still a rather poor understanding of the neurocognitive mechanisms explaining the positive effects of aerobic exercise on cognition. LÄS MER

  4. 4. The aging brain and changes in cognitive performance Findings from morphometry and quantitative susceptibility mapping of iron

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Department of Psychology, Stokholm University

    Författare :Ninni Persson; Stockholms universitet.; [2015]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; brain aging; volumes; ndividual differences; QSM; cognitive aging; iron; episodic memory; fluid-; crystalized abilities; sex differences; gender differences; psykologi; Psychology;

    Sammanfattning : Brain aging is a heterogeneous phenomenon, and this thesis illustrates how the course of aging can vary within individuals over time and between individuals as a function of age, sex, and genetic variability. We used two contrasts from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), namely spin-lattice T1-weighted imaging, and quantitative susceptibility mapping (QSM) from gradient-echo images, to picture the aging brain, by means of morphometric measures and brain-iron concentrations.

    Sammanfattning : The aim of the thesis was to study cognitive functioning in patients with chronic toxic encephalopathy (CTE) and in aging workers previously exposed to organic solvents. The discriminative power of a series of cognitive tests in identifying patients with CTE was examined. LÄS MER
