Strokes Steal 8 Years’ Worth of Brain Function, Study Finds


New research by the University of Michigan found having a stroke ages a person´s brain function by almost eight years.

In both black and white patients, having had a stroke meant that their score on a memory test and thinking speed had dropped as much as it would have if they had aged 7.9 years overnight.

"Although we found that stroke does not explain the difference, these results show the amount of cognitive aging that stroke brings on, and therefore the importance of stroke prevention to reduce the risk of cognitive decline," the researchers say.
