Cortisol levels and cognitive profile in major depression: A comparison of currently and previously depressed patients
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-08-22)
The association between depressive symptoms and elevated cortisol levels, and depression and cognitive functioning, has been less robust in outpatients with symptoms in the mild to moderate range. Furthermore, the association between elevated cortisol levels and cognitive functioning is unclear. In the present study, currently depressed (<i>n</i> = 37), previously depressed (<i>n</i> = 81) and never ...
The impact of age-related hearing loss and lateralized auditory attention on spatiotemporal parameters of gait during dual-tasking among community dwelling older adults
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-07-27)
This investigation assessed the impact of hearing loss and lateralized auditory attention on spatiotemporal parameters of gait during overground dual-tasking by the use of the dichotic listening task. Seventy-eight right-handed, healthy older adults between 60 and 88 years were assigned to a Young-Old (<70 years) or an Old-Old (>71 years) group. Cognitive assessment and pure tone audiometry were ...
Cerebrospinal fluid neurogranin/β-site APP-cleaving enzyme 1 predicts cognitive decline in preclinical Alzheimer's disease
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-11-10)
<i>Introduction</i>: The cerebrospinal fluid neurogranin (Ng)/β-site amyloid precursor protein-cleaving enzyme 1 (BACE1) ratio may reflect synaptic affection resulting from reduced beta-amyloid (Aβ) clearance. We hypothesize that increased Ng/BACE1 ratio predicts the earliest cognitive decline in Alzheimer’s disease.<p> <p><i>Methods</i>: We compared Ng/BACE1 levels between cases with subjective ...
