A recently conducted study has revealed a strong link between vitamin D and cognitive function. According to, vitamin D’s metabolic pathways have been discovered in the cerebellum and hippocampus regions of the brain which are basically responsible for planning, developing and creating new memories and impressions on the mind. This new discovery has spurred the doubts on vitamin D playing a role in various cognitive processes. The study has been conducted by a team of researchers at the Tufts University in Boston.

As reported by, the study was carried out on about 1,000 people who were getting home care for cognitive ailments. The team of researchers examined their neuro-psychological state and found an association between the measured vitamin D count in blood concentrations. They were then classified on the basis of their vitamin D counts. The participants were categorized as insufficient, deficient, or sufficient. It was recorded that only 35 percent people reported for possessing sufficient amounts of vitamin D.  The researchers remarked that elderly who get home care are at increased risk of becoming vitamin D defiant since their exposure to sunlight is quite less. The report has been published in a number of journals including Medical Sciences, Gerontology and Series A.
