Cognitive function was assessed with a battery of neuropsychological tests before and one week after surgery (379 completed one-week neuropsychological testing). A total of 59 age-and education-matched non-surgical controls were recruited...

Can following a Mediterranean diet lower the risk of stroke? A new study says possibly -- and especially for women. Mediterranean diets, which encourage eating fruits, vegetables, nuts, fish, and unsaturated fats, have been associated with lower rates of heart disease and strokes. Research on the subject has been of variable quality, failing to account for people's cardiovascular risks or how strictly they followed their diets.
