Neurology in the Media

CNN interviews Richard Lipton, M.D., about a new study that finds moderate to intense exercise may slow the rate of mental decline. Dr. Lipton notes the study shows that low physical activity predicts cognitive decline, including the abilities that are important for everyday function such as processing speed and episodic memory. 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. (Tuesday, Mar 29, 2016)

CBS News interviews Richard Lipton, M.D., about his new research that finds stress doubles the chance of seniors developing a pre-Alzheimer’s condition. Along with Mindy Katz, M.P.H., the Einstein Aging Study team suggests that treating stress in the elderly may delay or even avoid the onset of dementia. 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. Ms. Katz is a senior associate in the Saul R. Korey Department of Neurology. (Monday, Dec 14, 2015)
