Forty-seven million people worldwide live with dementia (1), and this number is expected to triple by 2050 (2). Despite evidence that the overall incidence of dementia has declined in the United States (3, 4), the number of U.S. adults older than 70 years with dementia or mild cognitive impairment (MCI) increases as our population ages (5, 6). Dementia severely erodes functioning and quality of life, creates burden and stress on families, and leads to institutionalization. Dementia-related… Expand
Cognitive decline in older adults: applying multiple perspectives to develop novel prevention strategies
Cognitive decline among older adults encompasses the range of subclinical decline, mild cognitive impairment (MCI), and Alzheimer-type dementia. In 2015, 47 million people worldwide were estimated toExpand
Dietary Patterns and Cognitive Decline: key features for prevention.
TLDR
The evidence for the effects of some dietary patterns as neuroprotective, with potential to delay cognitive decline and the onset of dementia are examined. Expand
Mild Cognitive Impairment in Clinical Practice: A Review Article
TLDR
Lifestyle modification, such as aerobic exercise, is an approved modality to preserve cognitive ability and decrease the rate of progression to dementia, as well as being recommended for frailty prevention. Expand
Cardiovascular fitness and structural brain integrity: an update on current evidence
TLDR
It is suggested that, while there is some preliminary evidence for a link between cardiovascular fitness and brain structure in older adults, more research is still needed before definitive causal conclusions can be drawn. Expand
Physical activity and cognitive function in older adults
As the demographical change continues resulting in an older population, the health promotion work in the group of older adults will become necessary. It is important to acknowledge that the health ofExpand
Dementia Risk and Dynamic Response to Exercise: Methodology for an Acute Exericise Clinical Trial
TLDR
This clinical trial seeks to characterize the acute exercise response in cerebral perfusion, and circulating neurotrophic factors in older adults with and without the apolipoprotein e4 genotype, the strongest genetic predictor or sporadic, late onset AD. Expand
Physical Activity, Cognition, and Brain Outcomes: A Review of the 2018 Physical Activity Guidelines
TLDR
There is moderate-to-strong support that PA benefits cognitive functioning during early and late periods of the life span and in certain populations characterized by cognitive deficits. Expand
A Multifactor Approach to Mild Cognitive Impairment
TLDR
Different conceptions of MCI are reviewed, the diagnosis and prognostication ofMCI, and presently available management approaches for this condition are reviewed. Expand
Overview of Meta-Analyses of Five Non-pharmacological Interventions for Alzheimer's Disease
TLDR
Non-pharmacological therapy shows promise for the treatment of AD, but there is still a lack of high-quality evidence. Expand

Prevalence of Cognitive Impairment without Dementia in the United States
TLDR
Prevalence rates from what is believed to be the first population-based study of cognitive impairment without dementia to include individuals from all regions of the country are reported, as well as rates of progression from cognitive impairmentWithout dementia to dementia and death. Expand
Does physical activity prevent cognitive decline and dementia?: A systematic review and meta-analysis of longitudinal studies
TLDR
Longitudinal observational studies show an association between higher levels of physical activity and a reduced risk of cognitive decline and dementia, and a case can be made for a causal interpretation. Expand
Epidemiologic studies of modifiable factors associated with cognition and dementia: systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
Higher Hcy levels, lower educational attainment, and decreased physical activity were particularly strong predictors of incident AD, and further studies are needed to support other potential modifiable protective factors, such as caffeine. Expand
Preventing Alzheimer's disease and cognitive decline.
TLDR
The current research on the list of putative risk or protective factors is largely inadequate to confidently assess their association with AD or cognitive decline, and further research that addresses the limitations of existing studies is needed to be able to make recommendations on interventions. Expand
Incidence of Dementia over Three Decades in the Framingham Heart Study.
TLDR
The incidence of dementia has declined among participants in the Framingham Heart Study and the prevalence of most vascular risk factors and the risk of dementia associated with stroke, atrial fibrillation, or heart failure have decreased over time, but none of these trends completely explain the decrease in the incidence. Expand
A Comparison of the Prevalence of Dementia in the United States in 2000 and 2012
TLDR
The prevalence of dementia in the United States declined significantly between 2000 and 2012, and an increase in educational attainment was associated with some of the decline in dementia prevalence, but the full set of social, behavioral, and medical factors contributing to the decline is still uncertain. Expand
A meta-analysis of prospective studies on the role of physical activity and the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease in older adults
TLDR
Physical activity was associated with a reduced risk of Alzheimer’s disease in adults over the age of 65 years, and greater emphasis should be paid to primary prevention through physical activity amongst individuals at high-risk of Alzheimer's disease, such as those with strong genetic and family history. Expand
Effect of physical activity on cognitive function in older adults at risk for Alzheimer disease: a randomized trial.
TLDR
In this study of adults with subjective memory impairment, a 6-month program of physical activity provided a modest improvement in cognition over an 18-month follow-up period. Expand
Recent global trends in the prevalence and incidence of dementia, and survival with dementia
TLDR
A systematic review of studies of trends in prevalence, incidence and mortality for people with dementia, conducted since 1980 found no evidence to suggest that the current assumption of constant age-specific prevalence of dementia over time is ill-founded. Expand
A 2 year multidomain intervention of diet, exercise, cognitive training, and vascular risk monitoring versus control to prevent cognitive decline in at-risk elderly people (FINGER): a randomised controlled trial
TLDR
Findings from this large, long-term, randomised controlled trial suggest that a multidomain intervention could improve or maintain cognitive functioning in at-risk elderly people from the general population. Expand
