Background The Australian Research Council Longevity Intervention (ARCLI) was designed to investigate the effects of two active supplements, Pycnogenol and Bacopa monnieri (CDRI08) on cognitive performance in a cohort of elderly participants. An additional antioxidant supplement has been included into the trial. A neuroimaging component has also been added to the ARCLI study to investigate the neurochemical biomarkers of oxidative stress in vivo, as well as structural and functional changes asso...

Abstract In older people sleep difficulties are associated with a range of poorer physiological (e.g. increased oxidative stress) and psychological outcomes. However, the impact of many psychological factors on sleep difficulties is poorly described. This study investigated the extent to which state and trait anxiety predicted self-reported sleep difficulties in healthy older adults. We present an analysis of the baseline data ( n = 292) collected as part of the Australian Research Council Longe...

Abstract Recent research is indicating predictive validity for emotional intelligence (EI) in a range of important scholastic variables including bullying, well-being and mental health. There have been some suggestions that emotional intelligence and resiliency in school children are also related, however, there is little research on these variables. Therefore, the present study attempted to bridge this gap by examining the relationship between EI, resiliency and scholastic performance. Specific...

Abstract Adults who remain cognitively active may be protected from age-associated changes in white matter (WM) and cognitive decline. To determine if cognitive activity is a precursor for WM plasticity, the available literature was systematically searched for Region of Interest (ROI) and whole-brain studies assessing the efficacy of cognitive training (CT) on WM microstructure using Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) in healthy adults (> 40 years). Seven studies were identified and included in this...

There is increasing evidence that connections formed between microbiome, the gut, and the brain play a role in health and well-being. Non-pharmaceutical targets for management of mood disorders, such as bipolar disorder, are relatively under-researched. At the same time, it is clear that there is an intimate connection between psychiatry and gastrointestinal health. Here, we have discussed various comorbid conditions associated with bipolar disorders such as inflammation, irritable bowel disease...

The current study examined associations between blood lipid profiles and cognitive functioning using a healthy non-demented elderly sample. The sample comprised 196 healthy volunteers (male; 86: female 110) aged 60–75 years from the Australian Research Council Longevity Intervention (ARCLI) study cohort. Serum total cholesterol (T-C), low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-c), high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-c) and triglycerides (TGL) were collected, and participants completed the Sw...
