Time-Dependent Effects of Acute Exercise on University Students’ Cognitive Performance in Temperate and Cold Environments.
Background: Few studies have examined the acute exercise-induced changes in cognitive performance in different thermal environments and the time course effects. Objective: Investigate the time-dependent effects of acute exercise on university students’ processing speed, working memory […]
CONTEXT The changes in verbal learning and working memory that often occur with aging may result in reduced social and intellectual interactions. These changes significantly affect an individual’s quality of life. As humans age, the body’s […]
Amyloid-Related Memory Decline in Preclinical Alzheimer’s Disease Is Dependent on APOE ε4 and Is Detectable over 18-Months.
High levels of β-amyloid (Aβ) in the brain and carriage of the APOE ε4 allele have each been linked to cognitive impairment in cognitively normal (CN) older adults. However, the relationship between these two biomarkers and […]
Effect of hyperbilirubinaemia on neurocognitive, renal, bone and cardiovascular markers in HIV infection treated with boosted protease inhibitors.
INTRODUCTION: Use of some protease inhibitors (PI) is associated with unconjugated hyperbilirubinaemia (HBR), due to inhibition of UGT1A1. As observed in Gilbert’s syndrome, HBR may have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. Inflammation may be relevant to neurocognitive […]
