Boston researchers find ‘vicious cycle’ between daytime napping and Alzheimer’s dementia

Boston medical researchers in a new groundbreaking study have discovered a “vicious cycle” between daytime napping and Alzheimer’s dementia.

The Brigham and Women’s Hospital researchers found a link between the two: Excessive daytime napping predicted an increased future risk of Alzheimer’s dementia, and a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s dementia sped up the increase in daytime napping during aging.

Daytime napping is common among older adults, but researchers have not known the relationship between daytime napping and cognitive aging.
