Wel­come to the Cognitive and Brain Aging Group pages

Our group aims to understand the pathways from protective and risk factors to old age cognition and brain health. We aim to improve the early identification of individuals with high risk of cognitive impairment, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. We are also aiming for better understanding of cognitive aging in the oldest-old.
