Cortisol and the brain
Posted By: JFS
The interesting book Brain Longevity posits a relationship between elevated cortisol levels and damage to the brain which leads to senile dementias (e.g., Alzheimer's).
"...chronic, unbalanced stress causes elevation of the hormone cortisol. Cortisol has a toxic effect on the memory center of the brain and can cause memory loss. The stress management tool of meditation decreases cortisol and enhances many aspects of mental function. Massage and guided mental imagery have also recently been shown to lower cortisol levels in the blood."
