Mild memory loss linked to Alzheimer's

  • 1 Comment

Mild memory loss is caused by the same brain lesions associated with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, and is not simply a result of getting older, US research has found.

The study stated that very early mild cognitive changes, once thought to be normal aging, were really the first signs of progressive dementia, particularly Alzheimer’s disease. The research, published in Neurology, involved up to 13 years of annual cognitive testing in over 350 adults. The subjects’ brains were also studied after they had died.
