Vascular Neurocognitive Disorder
Resources for Patients and Caregivers
Vascular neurocognitive disorder is a condition characterized by disruptions in the brain’s blood supply that lead to impairment of one or more aspects of a person’s conscious brain functions.

- Aβ42 treatment of the brain side reduced the level of flotillin from endothelial cells on the blood side via FGF-2 signaling in a blood-brain barrier modelby Tomohisa Nakamura on January 26, 2023
Our previous study showed that the flotillin level is decreased in the blood of patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) when compared to that of patients with non-AD and vascular dementia; however, the molecular mechanism remains to be determined. In this study, to elucidate whether Aβ accumulation in the brain has an effect on the blood flotillin level, we used our previously established blood-brain barrier (BBB) culture model using microvascular endothelial cells obtained from human induced...
- General aspects of dementia disordersby Tania Zieschang on January 24, 2023
The prevalence of dementia increases with age. In rare cases, people younger than 65 years old are also affected, with substantial consequences for the professional life. The symptoms depend on the form of dementia and can vary individually. Impairment of short-term memory is not always in the foreground and other neurocognitive domains, such as the disturbance of executive functions can have a significant impact on the ability to cope with everyday life. Pathophysiologically, neurodegenerative...
- Association of Kidney Function With Development of Alzheimer Disease and Other Dementias and Dementia-Related Blood Biomarkersby Hannah Stocker on January 24, 2023
CONCLUSIONS AND RELEVANCE: In this population-based study of community-dwelling adults, reduced kidney function was associated with increased levels of dementia-related blood biomarkers but not increased dementia risk. Kidney function might influence the accuracy of dementia-related blood biomarkers and should be considered in clinical translation.
- Metabolic and Vascular Risk Factor Variability Over 25 Years Relates to Midlife Brain Volume and Cognitionby Zahra Shirzadi on January 23, 2023
CONCLUSION: This study demonstrates that MVRF variability over time is associated with midlife brain volume in regions that are relevant to later-life cognitive decline.
