Abstract: The bidirectional link between heart and brain has intrigued scientists for ages, but little is known on the underlying mechanism. In their recent study, Fischer and colleagues (Islam et al, 2021) propose a mechanism by which heart failure‐induced cognitive decline is linked to epigenetic changes that affect gene expression in neurons of hippocampus.
