Psychiatric News (3/21) reports research indicates that “adults who napped excessively were more likely to experience worse cognition in the future, and conversely, adults with poor cognition were more likely to nap excessively in the future.” Investigators arrived at these conclusions after examining “data from 1,401 adults with a mean age of 81.4 years who were part of the Rush Memory and Aging Project between 2005 and 2020.” The study also revealed that “longer naps were also linked with Alzheimer’s risk.” The findings were published online March 17 in the journal Alzheimer’s & Dementia.
