Homocysteine in Neurology: A Possible Contributing Factor to Small Vessel Disease
The possible role of HHcy in small-vessel disease and understands its pathogenic impact are addressed. Expand
Small Vessel Disease-Related Dementia: An Invalid Neurovascular Coupling?
The possible mechanisms that lead a healthy aging process towards subcortical dementia are examined and it is remarked that SVD and white matter abnormalities related to age could be accelerated and potentiated by different vascular risk factors. Expand
B Vitamins and Fatty Acids: What Do They Share with Small Vessel Disease-Related Dementia?
An up-to-date review of the literature on vitamin supplementation, fatty acid, and dementia is presented, shedding some light on the possible interaction of vitamins and phosphatidylcholine, and their role in brain metabolism and catabolism. Expand
Small vessel disease to subcortical dementia: a dynamic model, which interfaces aging, cholinergic dysregulation and the neurovascular unit
It is remarked that SVD and white matter abnormalities are seen frequently with aging and also that vascular and endothelium changes are related with age; the changes can be accelerated by different vascular risk factors. Expand

Department of Medical, Surgical and Health Sciences, Neurology Clinic, University of Trieste, Trieste, Italy Background: Small vessels have the pivotal role for the brain’s autoregulation. TheExpand
Microvascular changes in estrogen-alpha sensitive brainstem structures of aging female hamsters
Structural neuronal plasticity is present in the nucleus para-retroambiguus (NPRA) and the commissural nucleus of the solitary tract/A2 group (NTScom/A2) in female hamsters. Both brainstem nucleiExpand
Age-associated physiological and pathological changes at the blood–brain barrier: A review

  • Journal of cerebral blood flow and metabolism : official journal of the International Society of Cerebral Blood Flow and Metabolism
  • 2017
An overview on the major elements of the blood–brain barrier and its supporting mechanisms and also on their alterations during development, physiological aging process and age-associated neurodegenerative disorders (Alzheimers disease, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, pharmacoresistant epilepsy) are given. Expand
Age-related changes in pial arterial structure and blood flow in mice
It is found that the blood flow in old mice's brains is lower than that in young mice and that old mice had more curved pial arteries and fewer pial artery junctions than young mice, and the ratio of collagen to elastin increased with age. Expand
Alzheimer’s Then and Now
Alzheimer’s disease has probably existed since mammals roamed the earth although it was not recognized as a disease until 1907, when Alois Alzheimer published his landmark paper describing a mentally ill patient whose brain after death showed strange deposits later described as senile plaques and neurofibrillary tangles.

Diminished cerebrovascular reserve in the cerebral white matter of elderly individuals with leukoaraiosis
The cerebral white matter contains millions of fibers that serve to connect different regions of the brain and supports sophisticated information processing. A sudden loss of these fibers in a brainExpand
