A group of researchers from Brighton and Sussex Medical School (UK) have analyzed genetic and key factors that may help build a “cognitive reserve” that provides a buffer against Alzheimer’s disease. study, published in neurologytried to find out why some people with amyloid plaques in their brain show no symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, while others with a similar number of plaques have obvious memory problems, finding that clubs, religious groups Factors such as membership in sports or artistic activities, a good educational level, a job occupation and the ability to read can have a positive effect in this regard.

The study included 1,184 people born in Britain in 1946. He took cognitive tests at age eight and again at age 69.

Their reading ability at age 53 was also assessed as a measure of general lifelong learning, regardless of education and occupation. He also took a cognitive test, which was done at the age of 69, and his overall score was 100. The average score for this group was 92, with the lowest being 53 and the highest being 100.

Researchers found that higher cognitive ability in childhood, a higher index of cognitive reserve, and higher reading ability were associated with higher cognitive test scores at age 69. They also found that for each unit increase in childhood test scores, cognitive test scores in later life increased by an average of 0.10 points. For each unit increase in cognitive reserve index, cognitive scores increased by an average of 0.07 points, and for each unit increase in reading ability, cognitive scores increased by an average of 0.22 points.
