Neurology in the Media

The Washington Post reports on research by Joe Verghese, M.B.B.S., that predicts pre-dementia by measuring walking speed and cognitive abilities. The quick, low-tech test determined that 1 in 10 older adults have pre-dementia. The study involved 27,000 people in 7 countries. It found that those who had unusually slow walking speed and cognitive complaints are twice as likely to develop dementia within 12 years. Dr. Verghese is professor of neurology at Einstein and chief of the division of geriatrics at Einstein and Montefiore Medical Center. (Tuesday, Aug 05, 2014)

The New York Times interviews Richard Lipton, M.D., about research from the Einstein Aging Study (EAS) which found an association between perceived stress and dementia. As part of two separate EAS studies, participants were surveyed about perceived stress. For healthy participants, cognitive loss was associated with scoring highest for stress and anxiety over a four-year period while the risk of dementia was two-and-a-half times greater for participants who had amnestic mild cognitive impairment and the highest perceived stress. Dr. Lipton is director of the Einstein Aging Study and vice chair of the Saul R. Korey Department of Neurology at Einstein and director of the division of cognitive aging and dementia at Montefiore Medical Center. (Wednesday, Jul 16, 2014)
