To improve cognitive health, interventions are required to prevent cerebrovascular disease and encourage healthier lifestyles.
Why this matters
Cognitive reserve is the factors that lead to differences in cognition despite patients having the same type and degree of brain pathology.
Influencing factors can include social engagement, marital status, height, and physical activity.
Few studies have examined cognitive reserve in patients with vascular brain injury and its downstream effects on cognition; therefore, more research is warranted.
