Acupuncture for age-associated cognitive decline.

Topics: Acupuncture for age-associated cognitive decline.

Age-associated cognitive decline is a persistent problem affecting the sufferer and their families. Currently, available pharmaceutical treatments are limited to pathological conditions such as vascular dementia and only provide modest benefits, often accompanied by undesirable adverse effects. Acupuncture is a safe and cost-effective therapy that has been used to improve health and well-being, including brain and neurological functions.
Numerous neuroimaging studies suggest that acupuncture can activate cognitive-related neural structures and improve cognitive deficits in pathological cohorts.
While this effect is relatively healthy cohorts were not clear, numerous mechanism studies suggest a possibility that acupuncture has modest effects on protecting the brain and potentiate prevention. In this workshop, Dr. Sun will be providing an overview of how cognitive declines occur in a neuroscience scope and how acupuncture provides an effect against the debilitation of these functions from an evidence-based approach.
