Stroke patients may be more likely to experience memory decline

ncrease the risk of memory problems by destroying or damaging certain areas of the brain or by triggering the deposit of materials that form the hallmark brain plaques associated with Alzheimer's disease. "It is also possible that the occurrence of stroke adds cognitive deficits in person with subclinical Alzheimer's disease that bring them over the diagnostic threshold and that stroke does not have a direct specific effect on Alzheimer's disease."

"A history of stroke is related to a progressive decline in memory and abstract/visuospatial performance, especially among men and those without an APOE4 allele," they conclude.
