THE OLDER AUSTRALIAN TWINS STUDY (OATS) OF HEALTHY BRAIN AGEING AND AGE-RELATED NEUROCOGNITIVE DISORDERS

Grant number: 1045325 | Funding period: 2013 - 2015

Completed

Abstract

Ageing is associated with cognitive decline and dementia. It is still not completely understood what relative contributions genes and environment play in these. This project is an extension of the Older Australian Twins Study to examine genetic and environmental factors associated with late life brain changes and dementia, and will establish an internationally significant cohort for novel discovery.
