These are the conclusions drawn by Stanford University School of Medicine researchers Sherry Beaudreau, Ph.D., and Ruth O'Hara, Ph.D., from their literature review on the subject.
O'Hara is an associate professor in the same department. Both are affiliated with the Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Health Care System.
"A significant clinical concern is which problem to treat first when both anxiety and cognitive impairment are present," Beaudreau and O'Hara wrote.
Overall, the research reviewed by Beaudreau and O'Hara, while not conclusive, revealed more than a casual relationship between GAD and mild cognitive impairment.
Beaudreau and O'Hara also identified a few longitudinal studies that determined that the level of an elderly individual's anxiety could be "a predictor of future cognitive decline."
