Image: This fMRI scan shows the brain area outlined in yellow is the hippocampus; the dentate gyrus is shown in green and the entorhinal cortex in purple. Previous work, including by the laboratory of senior author Scott A. Small, M.D., had shown that changes in a specific part of the brain’s hippocampus--the dentate gyrus--are associated with normal age-related memory decline in humans and other mammals. The dentate gyrus is distinct from the entorhinal cortex, the hippocampal region affected in early-stage Alzheimer’s disease (Photo courtesy of the Laboratory of Scott A. Small, MD).

Mapping Tool Reveals Cocoa May Reverse Age-Related Memory Decline

Dietary cocoa flavanols, naturally occurring bioactives found in cocoa, has been shown to reverse age-related memory decline in healthy older adults, according to new findings. Flavanols are also found naturally in tea leaves and in specific fruits and vegetables.  More...
