Congratulations to the Columbia MR Research Center for 45 accepted abstracts, posters, and presentations at the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM) Annual Meeting & Exhibition May 15-20, 2021.
People who watched large amounts of TV in midlife experienced greater cognitive declines in their senior years. Dr. Priya Palta, an assistant professor of medical sciences and epidemiology at Columbia University, analyzed information from 10,700 adults in the Atherosclerosis Risk In Communities Neurocognitive Study (ARIC-NCS) study.
Although SARS-CoV-2 probably does not infect the brain, it can damage it significantly, a new study of autopsies of 41 COVID-19 patients finds. Columbia MR researcher and co-senior author Peter Canoll, MD, PhD says "We found clusters of microglia attacking neurons, a process called 'neuronophagia.'"
Columbia MR researchers Adam Brickman and Scott Small led a team looking into how supplementing with cocoa flavenols might affect performance on cognitive tests for healthy older adults. The clinical trial has shown that in older people, a diet supplemented with cocoa flavanols– naturally occurring compounds found in cocoa beans – may improve performance on a specific memory task.
