Cognitive Impairment Common Among World Trade Center Attack Responders

Healio (9/8, Oldt) reports, “Cognitive impairment was common among individuals who responded to the attacks on the World Trade Center,” researchers found after evaluating “818 responders who reported for annual monitoring visits.” The findings, which were published earlier this year in Alzheimer’s & Dementia: Diagnosis, Assessment & Disease Monitoring, suggest an association between post-traumatic stress disorder and cognitive impairment.
