Pumps, aqueducts, and drought management: vascular physiology in vascular cognitive impairment.

Abstract

Vascular cognitive impairment has been traditionally defined by structural pathology, an accumulation of infarcts, leading to progressive cognitive decline. Recent evidence, however, suggests that cognitive impairment may be independently mediated by hemodynamic dysfunction, including global and hemispheral hypoperfusion and altered cerebral blood flow… (More)
