STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Stroke occurs when a blood clot blocks an artery or blood vessel, cutting off blood flow to your brain. As a result, brain cells die and brain damage can occur. Without proper and timely treatment, a stroke can be lethal
  • Estimates suggest 10% of all strokes occur in people under the age of 50, and 2.5% of strokes occur in those under the age of 20
  • Studies have shown that, surprisingly, blocking inflammation after a stroke isn’t beneficial. Recent research demonstrates brain inflammation following a stroke actually plays a beneficial role in neuroplasticity and recovery of function
  • It’s imperative to rapidly implement neurocognitive training after a stroke, as your brain circuits need the proper stimulus to reroute
  • Education appears to play a role in stroke recovery by acting as a cognitive reserve against poststroke cognitive impairment. Getting the proper nutrition after a stroke is also crucial for optimal recovery

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Researchers have discovered that gait analysis can be used as a quick way to identify the type of dementia an individual has
  • Patients with Alzheimer’s disease and Lewy body dementia — two conditions that are difficult to differentiate in their early stages — have distinct gait patterns that relate to the subtle yet unique neurological differences between the two conditions
  • Those with Lewy body dementia vary the step length more than do people with Alzheimer’s, and have greater step time asymmetry. The irregularity of their walking pattern puts patients with Lewy body dementia at increased risk for falls
  • Aside from changes in gait, other early warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease include memory loss that disrupts daily life, finding it challenging to plan and problem solve, having trouble following conversations and/or struggling with vocabulary
  • Additional warning signs include trouble completing familiar tasks, confusion about time or place, vision problems and difficulty judging spatial relationships, declining judgment, withdrawal from social contact and mood or personality changes
