Cognitive performance and leukocyte telomere length in two narrow age-range cohorts: a population study

Mather, Karen A; Jorm, Anthony F; Anstey, Kaarin; Milburn, Peter J; Easteal, Simon; Christensen, Helen


BACKGROUND Cognitive function and telomere length both decline with age. A correlation between these two measures would suggest that they may be influenced by the same underlying age-related biological process. Several studies suggest telomere length may be positively correlated with cognitive performance but the evidence is equivocal. In this report, the relationships between telomere length and cognitive performance at Wave 2 and cognitive change from Wave 1 to Wave 2 are assessed in two...[Show more]
