To such conclusion scientists from the University of southern California. They proved that the gene ApoE4 affects the brain of men and women by different mechanisms. In the study, scientists conducted the MRI examination of over a thousand patients with cognitive impairment and Alzheimer's disease, reports The Times of India.
The presence of the gene ApoE4, according to the results of the study, two times increases the risk of bleeding in the brain, in men. Among women, similar patterns, scientists have revealed. Note, it comes microchromosome that you may not notice because the symptoms are very scarce.
Microbleeds, scientists emphasize, are different from the stroke, affecting only one side of the brain. In addition, microbleeds have a tendency to accumulate. As a result, may develop problems with memory and progression of Alzheimer's disease.
