More good news about the magic ion: lithium may prevent dementia.

Abstract

Lithium is an established treatment for affective disorders with good evidence of antisuicidal properties. Alzheimer's disease rates are relatively reduced in patients with bipolar disorder on lithium and a recent trial of lithium in amnestic minimal cognitive impairment is indicative of potential benefits. This should stimulate further, larger-scale studies.
