Association of cardiometabolic health factors with age-related executive function and episodic memory.

Neuropsychol Dev Cogn B Aging Neuropsychol Cogn 2021 May 2:1-15. Epub 2021 May 2.

Department of Psychology, University of Miami, Coral Gables, United States.

Although decline of cognitive abilities in late life is regarded as a common facet of aging, there is inter-individual variability in this decline. Possible contributors are cardiometabolic risk factors associated with cerebrovascular dysfunction, but a dearth in unifying health-cognition models confound exactly how these risk factors mediate age-related changes in executive function (EF) and episodic memory. This study investigated the indirect effect of age on these cognitive abilities via cardiometabolic risk factors using a structural equation modeling approach. Read More
