Abstract

Dementia is a neurological condition that is characterized by decline in multiple cognitive domains and is accompanied by a functional impairment. It is important to identify the factors that may delay the onset, slow the progression, or prevent cognitive decline. This review highlights the protective and risk factors of dementia, suggesting that physical activity, intellectual activity, and social engagement may reduce Alzheimer disease and cognitive decline and may be also helpful for enhancing quality of life.
