Researchers Found The Role Of Amino Acids In Emergence Of First Cells On Ancient Earth
The brains of hundreds of patients with high blood pressure were scanned using MRIs for study, by researchers at the U.S. National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS). The results showed that people with control of their blood pressure have a slow accumulation of white matter lesions, mental decline, and dementia than people who get blood pressure treatment.
Getting blood pressure numbers to healthy levels “significantly reduced white matter lesion accumulation in people who had a higher chance of experiencing this kind of damage because they had high blood pressure,” Wright said in a NINDS news release. The study also showed that people who got standard treatment had slightly less loss of brain volume compared to people who got intensive blood pressure control. However, the difference is very minimal. Studies have shown that intensive treatment of high blood pressure have lowered the risk of mild cognitive which is often an antecedent to dementia
“These findings on white matter lesions — primarily in the aggressive control of blood pressure — are encouraging as we continue to advance the science of understanding and addressing the complexities of brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s and related dementias,” Dr. Richard Hodes said in the release. He’s director of the U.S. National Institute on Aging.
Dementia is a syndrome that affects brain activities such as memory and reasoning. The possibilities for people to have mixed dementia have been found which can confirmed with autopsy. Almost 50 to 70% of Alzheimer disease is responsible for dementia.
Front temporal dementia or FTD has two variants speech variant attacks the part of the brain that deals with language are attacked, patients have trouble understanding speech and finding the right word to use when talking. The behavioral variant attacks personality, judgment, and empathy. It leaves the patient apathetic, inappropriate, and compulsive without even realizing that anything is wrong.
