Study examines the effect of drinking on cognitive impairment and dementia
Friday 26 August 2011
A review of 143 papers on the drinking of alcohol in moderation and cognition concluded that “overall, light to moderate drinking does not appear to impair cognition in younger subjects and actually seems to reduce the risk of dementia and cognitive decline in older subjects.”
The review was conducted by Edward J Neafsey and Michael A Collins of the
Department of Molecular Pharmacology and Therapeutics, Loyola University Chicago, Stritch School of Medicine, Maywood, IL, USA and it was published in the journal Neuropsychiatric Disease and treatment.
