Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Neuropathologies in older persons with more hospitalization

Takeaway

  • Faster rates of cognitive decline occur in older persons with more hospitalizations especially if they have more pronounced tau tangle density and neocortical Lewy body pathologies.

Why this matters

    The hypothesis of a common neurodegenerative and cerebrovascular lesion playing a role in hospitalization-related cognitive decline may be tested using a novel approach to reveal related neuropathologies.
