Risk Factors for Probable REM Sleep Behavior Disorder

ABSTRACT

Objective: To examine risk factors for REM sleep behavior disorder (RBD) in a large-scale community-based study.

Methods: This community-based study included 12,784 Chinese adults (10,556 men and 2,228 women, aged 24 years or older) who were free of Parkinson disease and dementia in 2012. Probable RBD (pRBD) status was determined by a validated questionnaire (Chinese RBD questionnaire–Hong Kong) in 2012.

How Exercise During Midlife Relates to Your Brain Volume

ABSTRACT

Objective: To determine whether poor cardiovascular (CV) fitness and exaggerated exercise blood pressure (BP) and heart rate (HR) were associated with worse brain morphology in later life.

Methods: Framingham Offspring participants (n = 1,094, 53.9% female) free from dementia and CV disease (CVD) underwent an exercise treadmill test at a mean age of 40 ± 9 years.
