Aging Arteries and Declining Cognitive Functions

With age come stiffer arteries, which, in turn, may be linked to declining brain functions. The goal of Dr. Nadjia Kachenoura’s research is to find new indicators of arterial aging and to determine its consequences for the brain, especially when paired with traditional risk factors. Identifying accurate signs of cardiovascular and cerebral aging could enhance the use of non-invasive scans to predict, early on, disabling events such as strokes—and the early loss of cognitive functions they may cause.
