Figures and Tables from this paper


Physical exercise at midlife and risk of dementia three decades later: a population-based study of Swedish twins.
Exercise at midlife may reduce the odds of dementia in older adulthood, suggesting that exercise interventions should be explored as a potential strategy for delaying disease onset.
Physical exercise, aging, and mild cognitive impairment: a population-based study.
Any frequency of moderate exercise performed in midlife or late life was associated with a reduced odds of having mild cognitive impairment (MCI), and the findings were consistent among men and women.
Continuous gait monitoring discriminates community‐dwelling mild Alzheimer's disease from cognitively normal controls
Variability in step velocity and cadence had the highest predictive utility in identifying individuals with mild AD and were also associated with cognitive domains impacted in early AD.
Metabolic syndrome and cognitive decline in early Alzheimer's disease and healthy older adults.
It is suggested that individual MetS components should not be evaluated in isolation and that careful methodological approaches are needed to understand the timing and non-linear relationships among these components over time.
Daily Physical Activity Patterns During the Early Stage of Alzheimer's Disease.
It is suggested that factors independent of physical capacity and mobility may drive declines in moderate-intensity physical activity, and not lower-intensity or sedentary activity, during the early stage of AD.
Clinical diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease: Report of the NINCDS—ADRDA Work Group under the auspices of Department of Health and Human Services Task Force on Alzheimer's Disease
Article abstract-Clinical criteria for the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease include insidious onset and progressive impairment of memory and other cognitive functions. There are no motor, sensory, or
Physical Activity and Alzheimer’s Disease: A Narrative Review
It is evident that physical activity and exercise may be incorporated in AD, notwithstanding, a greater number of high-quality randomised controlled trials are needed, moreover, physical activity typology must be acutely considered, primarily due to a dearth of research on the efficacy of physical activity types other than aerobic.
New Insights into Activity Patterns in Children, Found Using Functional Data Analyses.
FDA provides a useful statistical framework for settings in which the effect of covariates on the timing of activity is of interest, and is made code public to facilitate the use of similar models in other applications.
Intra-Individual Variability of Physical Activity in Older Adults With and Without Mild Alzheimer’s Disease
Investigation of individual differences in the amount and intra-individual variability of physical activity provided insight into differences by AD status, days of monitor wear, gender, and cardiovascular capacity.
Modelling a response as a function of high-frequency count data: The association between physical activity and fat mass
The method improves on the current state of the art, as it can deal with high-frequency time series of different lengths and missing values and yields a flexible way to model the physical activity effect with fewer assumptions, and allows the commonly made modelling assumptions to be tested.
