Bilingualism Delays The Onset Of Dementia

- The debate Recent studies propose that bilingualism delays the onset of dementia by 4-4.6 years (Bialystok, Craik & Freedman, 2007, Craik, Bialystok & Freedman, 2010, Alladi et al., 2013. Woumans et al., 2015). In Canada, Bialystok, Craik and Freedman (2007) found a 4.1–year delay of dementia onset in bilinguals compared to monolinguals. Unfortunately, the authors do not report effect sizes, making it difficult to interpret the potential impact of these associations. The authors suggest immigration status had no effect on results, supporting this claim with separate analysis of immigrants, which showed an 11.5-year delay of dementia onset in bilinguals compared to monolinguals....   [tags: Alzheimer's disease, Brain, Cognition, Neurology]

The Age Of Onset Of Selective Mutism

- Age of Onset There are some professionals who have reported that the age of onset of selective mutism typically occurs between ages three and six. A diagnosis of SM can occur anywhere between the ages of five and eight; most often when the child enters school (Sharp, Sherman, Gross, 2007). Gender Differences Selective Mutism seems to be slightly more common in girls than in boys. This may be due to cultural upbringings.

Childhood Onset Schizophrenia And Schizophrenia

- Since childhood-onset schizophrenia (COS) has a much lower prevalence than adult-onset schizophrenia, the amount of valid studies completed solely on COS is rather small. But, COS is still characterizing the same disorder as adult-onset schizophrenia, it is just diagnosed at a younger age. As mentioned previously, childhood-onset schizophrenia is when a child meets all of the diagnostic criteria for schizophrenia prior to the age of thirteen. The lower age requirement needed to get a diagnosis of COS results in the disorder only having a prevalence of 1 in 40,000 versus the “4.6 per 1,000” with schizophrenia in general (Saha)....   [tags: Schizophrenia, Mental disorder, Genetics]

Early Onset Alzheimer's Disease

- “I had no idea that someone that young could even get Alzheimer’s.
