Abstract: There is growing interest in role of vascular disease in accelerating age-related decline in cerebrovascular structure and functional integrity. Since an increased number of older adults are surviving chronic diseases, of which cardiovascular disease (CVD) is prevalent, there is an urgent need to understand relationships between cardiovascular dysfunction and brain health. In my talk, I will discuss the role of CVD in advancing brain aging explored using advanced structrual and functional brain MR imaging. Results from recent studies in coronary artery disease patients demonstrating decreased gray matter volume, cortical thinning and abberent cerebrovascualar hemodynamics will be presented. In addition, the role of physical activity in mediating disease effects, specifically aerobic exercise training as part of a cardiac rehbailiation program, will be discussed as well.
