We hope you had a great start to your new year and we wish you a happy Black History Month and Valentine’s Day!

Here is our latest edition of Alzheimer’s Research News You Can Use for February 2019. In this edition, we discuss how both stress and the cold weather can affect the brain and contribute to memory problems.

In our first article, a study has shown individuals with higher levels of cortisol, the so-called stress hormone, performed worse on tests of memory than those with normal cortisol levels. To help wane stress, it is important to practice healthy habits to reduce it overall.

In our second article, investigators looked at 3,353 older men and women living in the United States, Canada and France and found that during the summer and fall, the brain appeared to be nearly five years “younger” than during the winter and spring.
