This program will look at what we know in terms of aging, changes in our memory and other cognitive abilities, and the underlying brain changes associated with decline. While the number of cases of Alzheimer’s disease and related late life dementias is increasing and perhaps the leading public health concern in terms of overall health and economic burden, several epidemiological studies in the last several years have shown that the incidence, i.e., individual risk, as well prevalence of the disease has actually decreased. Dr. Keys will present information about contributory risk factors ranging from genetics to modifiable lifestyle changes, focusing on what we know and don’t know about risk and protection in cognitive aging.
Objectives: Presentation attendees will achieve:
- An understanding of the continuum from normal aging and cognitive status to the development of decline in cognitive and functional abilities as seen in late-onset Alzheimer’s disease.
- An understanding of what has been learned in terms of incidence and prevalence of dementia in late-life that suggests that risk of developing the illness may be declining in developed nations (including a discussion of hypothesis of cardiovascular risk factors, education, and other variables of aging and cognitive change).
- An understanding of the complex interplay of what is known about risk and protective factors ranging from family history and genetic associations, to level of education, to health issues such as cardiovascular risk, diabetes, and modifiable life style issues such as diet, exercise, and increased socialization.
