In a recent study published in Circulation, BUSM researchers report that among participants from the Framingham Offspring Study, decreased cardiac index (the amount of blood that pumps from the heart into the body and brain) is associated with decreased brain volume, a sign of brain aging. The study’s lead author, BU ADC investigator Dr. Angela Jefferson, discusses the findings with USA Today, Time magazine, and MSN.
