Hypertension is a risk factor for diffuse brain atrophy. Yet, there is little evidence that higher blood pressure predicts focal brain atrophy, as indicated by a lower volume of regional brain tissue. This voxel-based morphometry study tested (a) whether higher blood pressure predicts lower regional grey or white matter volume and (b) whether a blood-pressure-related reduction in regional brain tissue volume predicts poorer neuropsychological test performance. Participants were 76 men (M age… CONTINUE READING
