English scientists assume connection between certain medicinal products and dementia
The medicinal products are called anticholinergics; they block the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Neurotransmitters are messengers that transmit information between nerve cells. The messenger acetylcholine is necessary in the brain for memory, cognitive processes, (processing of information through perception), and for learning. Researchers have found that taking such medicinal products against depression, bladder diseases and Parkinson's increases the risk of developing dementia by 13 percent. Nevertheless, the scientists warn against an abrupt discontinuation of the products. The research findings were published in the English journal
British Medical Journal.
