Stiff Arteries Linked With Memory Problems, Mouse Study Suggests

As we age, our arteries gradually become less flexible, making it harder for the heart to pump blood throughout the body. This hardening of the arteries occurs faster in people with high blood pressure and increases the risk for heart problems. Using a new mouse model, researchers have found that stiffer arteries can also negatively affect memory and other critical brain processes. The new research may eventually reveal how arterial stiffness leads to Alzheimer’s and other diseases involving dementia. To read more, click here.
