Abstract

Older adults, with and without memory problems, frequently seek ‘brain stimulating’ activities to reduce their dementia risk. Many such activities are available, but the evidence behind them is not clear and more research is needed to improve our understanding of these treatments. The proposed research programme aims to support older adults interested in these types of activities in their efforts to remain cognitively healthy and functionally independent irrespective of age and clinical status
