Dr. Kevin King is first author on a new published paper titled Detrimental effect of systemic vascular risk factors on brain hemodynamic function assessed with MRI. The work found low brain blood flow was associated with high triglyceride levels. They confirmed the decrease in blood flow was due to a vascular disease by also showing that there was greater extraction of oxygen from the blood. The work is the first to show an association between high triglycerides and brain blood flow and the first to show associations between blood flow and vascular risk factors using MRI.
