Dementia is not a specific disease. It's a condition in which a set of symptoms exist that cause individuals to have difficulty functioning in their daily lives.

'The report, published on Wednesday in the British Journal of Psychiatry, is a meta-analysis of 23 previous studies that followed nearly 50,000 older adults over a median of five years. The researchers found that depressed older adults (defined as those over age 50) were more than twice as likely to develop vascular dementia and 65 percent more likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease than similarly aged people who weren’t depressed.'

The Aging Brain Needs REST

The Aging Brain Needs REST | Group 7 | Scoop.it
Why do neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s affect only the elderly? More than a century of research into the causes of dementia has focused on the clumps and tangles of abnormal proteins that appear in the brains of people with neurodegenerative diseases. However, scientists know that at least one piece of the puzzle has been missing because some people with these abnormal protein clumps show few or no signs of cognitive decline.

Pacific Cove's curator insight, March 24, 2014 11:22 PM

“Our work raises the possibility that the abnormal protein aggregates associated with Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases may not be sufficient to cause dementia; you may also need a failure of the brain’s stress response system,” said Bruce Yankner, Harvard Medical School professor of genetics and leader of the study. #Alzheimers #Dementia

Multidisciplinary Respiratory Medicine | Full text | Anatomy and neuro-pathophysiology of the cough reflex arc

Coughing is an important defensive reflex that occurs through the stimulation of a complex reflex arc. It accounts for a significant number of consultations both at the level of general practitioner and of respiratory specialists. In this review we first analyze the cough reflex under normal conditions; then we analyze the anatomy and the neuro-pathophysiology of the cough reflex arc. The aim of this review is to provide the anatomic and pathophysiologic elements of evaluation of the complex and multiple etiologies of cough.
Shamira's insight:

Talks about all the receptors that were mentioned in the cough lecture (RARs, C-fibres etc).

It's pretty technical and tough to understand but it's a really good overview of everything!
