Genomic and Nongenomic Signaling Induced by 1a,25(OH)2-Vitamin D3 Promotes the Recovery of Amyloid-ß Phagocytosis by Alzheimer’s Disease Macrophages
This research indicated that vitamin D3 may activate some cell signaling networks and genes to strengthen the immune system which helps to clear away amyloid-beta protein, a main constituent of amyloid plaques that affect the brain.
Cognitive Capacity in Adults with Memory Problems Another research study looked at vitamin D's relationship to cognitive capacity in older adults with memory problems. The researchers noted a beneficial, marked correlation between serum 25(OH)D blood levels and mini-mental state examination scores.

Other research examined the relationship between 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) blood levels and cognitive ability in a cross-sectional population-based study with 3,369 men who were 40–79 years old. Cognitive function was measured with three standard cognitive ability tests. The researchers found lower levels of 25(OH)D levels in patients with low scores on the tests.
Association between 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels and cognitive performance in middle-aged and older European men J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry 2009
Researchers evaluated vitamin D blood level data for more than 1,300 women who were 50 to 79. They found that in women who were younger than 75 years old, the amount of vitamin D they ingested from from foods and supplements (not due to direct sunlight exposure) was connected to lower risk of developing early AMD. The patients who consumed the most vitamin D had a 59% decreased risk compared to those consumed the least. Vitamin D and Macular Degeneration, Archives of Ophthalmology, Amy E. Millen, PhD; et al.
Researchers in another study connected low vitamin D3 levels of vitamin D3 to increased incidence of macular degeneration. Diets that included milk, fish, and vitamin D supplements were assessed finding that consumming milk and fish was connected to lower risk of developing macular degeneration and those patients who didn't drink milk but did take vitamin D supplements also had less chance of developing of early macular degeneration.
