tension. Participants with onset at age 90 or older had an even lower dementia risk.

The investigators also found that people with blood pressure levels in the hypertensive range had a significantly lower risk of developing dementia compared to people with blood pressure in the normal range. The association was independent of whether participants were taking medications that treat hypertension.

"In our study, high blood pressure is not a risk factor for dementia in the oldest old, but just the opposite," said Corrada. "Developing hypertension at older ages may be beneficial for maintaining intact cognition through mechanisms related to cerebral perfusion or to vascular or other pathologies. It is important to understand these mechanisms, because recommendations for healthy blood pressure in the oldest old may turn out to differ from those in younger people."
