A life-course study of cognitive reserve in dementia: Dementia incidence in inpatient registers and mmse test scores in a clinical study in sweden

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragLetter

Abstract

Cognitive reserve helps mitigate the impact of pathology on the clinical expression of dementia. Education and occupational complexity are considered as contributors to reserve, although it has been argued that cognitive reserve is likely formed over the life-course. A life-course model of cognitive reserve in dementia risk has not yet been tested. We apply a life-course model and examine if school grades around age 10, formal educational attainment, and lifetime occupational complexity affect dementia incidence in inpatient registers.
