The dentate gyrus (DG) is a region in the hippocampal formation whose function declines in
association with human aging and is therefore considered to be a possible source of agerelated memory decline. Causal evidence is needed, however, to show that DG-associated
memory decline in otherwise healthy elders can be improved by interventions that enhance
DG function. We addressed this issue by first using a high-resolution variant of functional

magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to map the precise site of age-related DG dysfunction
and to develop a cognitive task whose function localized to this anatomical site. Then, in a
controlled randomized trial, we applied these tools to study healthy 50–69-year-old subjects
who consumed either a high or low cocoa flavanol–containing diet for 3 months. A highflavanol intervention was found to enhance DG function, as measured by fMRI and by
cognitive testing. Our findings establish that DG dysfunction is a driver of age-related
cognitive decline and suggest non-pharmacological means for its amelioration.
