Cardiovascular diseases are associated with poorer cognitive performances and increased dementia risks. Heart-brain interactions are increasingly recognized, yet the neuropsychologist’s contribution to cardiology remains limited. A neuropsychological assessment can help determine the presence of cognitive impairment. Neuropsychologists can play a pivotal role in empowering patients, supporting cardiology teams, and preventing cognitive decline and dementia.
This work is supported by the Mirella and Lino Saputo Research Chair in cardiovascular health and the prevention of cognitive decline from Université de Montréal at the Montreal Heart Institute.
