abstract
Introduction: Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias (ADRD) are a growing concern among the world’s increasingly large geriatric population. While no treatment exists to cure these diseases, substantial evidence has pointed to the potential for cardio-metabolic risk factors, like Blood Pressure Variability (BPV) to reduce the prevalence and slow the progression of ADRDs. It has been shown that high BPV may be associated with poor neurobiological and cognitive outcomes, but less is known about this relationship in a healthy, multi-ethnic populations and the specific cognitive domains which are most impacted.
