    Hypertension affects nearly half of adults in the United States and is associated with cognitive decline and dementia.  A wide variety of antihypertensive medications are prescribed to millions of people to control blood pressure and prevent vascular dementia.  Could it be that certain medications are better than others in preventing brain injury from chronic hypertension? Dr. Andrew Wilner is joined by Dr. Zachary Marcum, Associate Professor in the School of Pharmacy-University of Washington, to discuss his recent study investigating the association between certain hypertension medications and reduced cognitive impairment.
