Cognition is one of the most important functions of the brain. Cognition is a range of mental processes that allow us to acquire, store, manipulate, and retrieve information; exercise judgment; and behave appropriately… “It’s Who We Are”
We need cognition to help us understand information about the world around us and to interact safely and appropriately with others and with our environment.
Underlying Causes That May Affect Cognitive Function
Cognitive impairment is not a normal part of aging, however aging becomes a risk factor if certain underlying conditions aren’t treated or managed properly and timely. It is important to note that not all cognitive issues progress to dementias. Some cognitive impairments may be reversible.
Examples of common underlying conditions that may affect your cognition:
- Unhealthy lifestyle (Ex. Unhealthy diet, lack of exercise, substance abuse, chronic stress)
- Cardiovascular & metabolic condition (Ex. Diabetes, hypertension)
- Neurological issues (Ex. Depression, concussion)
- Sleep disorders
- Hormonal changes
