Stress, anxiety, and depression: how do they impact older adults at risk of cognitive decline?

Mental health factors and stress are linked to markers of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) pathology in older adults at risk of cognitive decline, according to new data presented at AAIC 2022.

In a series of observational cohort studies, researchers evaluated 1,170 cognitively normal patients who had an increased risk of AD, based on family history, APOE ε4 status, or subjective cognitive decline.
