HealthDay (10/22, Preidt) reported research suggests that “getting the right amount of sleep…could reduce your risk of mental decline as you age, even if you have early Alzheimer’s disease.” The study “included 100 older adults whose cognitive function had been monitored for an average of 4.5 years” and revealed that “cognitive scores declined for those with less than 5.5 or more than 7.5 hours of self-reported sleep per night, while scores remained stable for those in the middle of the range.” The findings were published in Brain.
