The effect of genetics and vascular health on memory functioning: The Betula Study.

Abstract [en]

This chapter presents a review of the role of different genes and vascular health factors in understanding normal and pathological human memory. Recent results are presented from a large-scale prospective cohort study on memory, health, and aging. The Betula project. Possible mechanisms for the genetic and vascular influences on individual differences and changes in memory in adulthood and old age are discussed. It is proposed taht multiple genes, each with specific functions, impact different memory systems and at specific points in the adult lifespan. It is also suggested that a combination of experimental methods in cognitive psychology, genetics, and brain imaging may be the ultimate recipe for the detection of early signs of neurodegenerative diseases.
