Scientists have found a connection between the nature and risk of developing senile dementia

Scientists from the University of Geneva (UNIGE) and the University Hospital of Geneva (HUG) found a connection between character and

risk of developing senile dementia, or dementia. As it turned out, individuals who are not used to speaking out against public opinion are more prone to illness.

Researchers observed 65 elderly peopleage. Neuroimaging methods and psycho-cognitive evaluations have helped scientists find a link between the risk of neurodegeneration (in particular, experts considered Alzheimer's disease) and traits. As a result, they saw that areas of the brain that lose volume in both normal aging and Alzheimer's disease were better preserved among the “uncomfortable” people and those who were more open to new experiences.

"Inconvenient" was called people who are less conformal and not afraid to enter into conflicts.
