According to employees of the University of California, the rapid aging of the brain in middle age is associated with high blood pressure. Among scientists there is no doubt that even with a slight pressure increase brain function can be impacted.
In a study involving six hundred volunteers conducted the measurement of blood pressure, as well as the MRI procedure.
It turned out, if the people had very high pressure, their brains were in much worse condition compared to people with normal blood pressure.
According to the researchers, high pressure can increase the rigidity of the walls of the arteries feeding the brain. Because of this, in turn, impeded blood supply to the nervous tissue, which subsequently causes the death of nerve cells and the aging brain.
