Cardiovascular diseases accelerate deterioration of brain health

People with cardiovascular diseases experience faster cognitive decline with age, with vascular constrictions posing a particularly high risk factor. This is the key finding of two studies conducted at Maastricht UMC+, which followed almost 2,000 people over twelve years to trace possible links between cardiovascular diseases and cognitive health. The research and findings have been published in the most recent editions of European Heart Journal and PLOS ONE.
