Study examines connection between brain health and sleep-disordered breathing

By: Lydia L. Kim, Digital Content Editor

A new study recently published in JAMA Neurology examines if there is a potential link between brain health and “sleep-disordered breathing (SLB).”

The study examined over 100 “community-dwelling” adults who had cognitive impairments and if a “presence of sleep-disordered breathing” had any connection with their brain health (specifically, “greater amyloid burden, gray matter volume, metabolism, and perfusion in the posterior cingulate cortex and precuneus”).

Although the data did not reveal a connection between cognitive performance and SLB, the data supports the importance to treat sleep disorders in older adults.
