Update: How to hold off Alzheimer’s Disease 8+ Years (even APOE4 carriers)

woman_brain___

Time for Sharp­Brains’ June 2014 e-newsletter, fea­tur­ing a wealth of insights, sci­ence reports, upcom­ing events, and fun brain teasers.

First of all, let us high­light what may well become the research find­ing of the year. As you can read in Men­tal stim­u­la­tion over genet­ics: How to hold off Alzheimer’s Dis­ease 8+ Years, “For APOE4 car­ri­ers with high life­time intel­lec­tual enrich­ment, the onset of cog­ni­tive impair­ment was approx­i­mately 8.7 years later com­pared with low life­time intel­lec­tual enrichment.”

Shouldn’t accu­mu­lat­ing find­ings like this inform human cap­i­tal and health poli­cies across the whole lifes­pan, and also how all of us lead our lives, har­ness­ing neu­ro­plas­tic­ity the right way to max­i­mize men­tal per­for­mance at any age and to delay decline and disease?
