CHeBA Visiting Lecture Series presents Professor Carol Brayne of the University of Campbridge, for her talk:

Population Studies and our Ageing Brains Today

The presentation will be followed by a live Q&A session with Professor Brayne

This presentation will include a brief resume of research in older populations led from Cambridge that have informed current clinical understanding and policy regarding services and prevention for and of dementia, including across generations. These population studies have more recently been ‘re-purposed’ with enthusiasm from participants into a trial platform. The presentation will cover the major findings from the studies, reflections on their contribution to our general understanding of ageing and the brain, and adapting to both a trial and COVID follow-ups.
