Researchers are investigating the relationship between sleep and cognition in Latinx adults who have first-degree relatives diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease.
Latinx individuals are 1.5 times more likely to develop dementia and related diseases like Alzheimer's Disease. Understanding the relationship between sleep and cognition is crucial to gaining insights into the disease development, outcomes, and health disparities among Hispanic and Latino individuals.
Researchers hope their findings will help to better understand how Alzheimer's disease develops and impacts people, especially those more at risk, like Hispanic and Latino adults. Alzheimer's Disease has no cure, and first-degree relatives are at a higher risk. This study will explore the relationship between trauma, sleep, and cognition.
