Predictors of successful ageing in European superagers
Successful brain function in the very old (90+ years) may inform understanding of how to maintain healthy brain function across the lifespan.
The predictors of healthy cognition in older age is of utmost socioeconomic and medical importance. This European collaborative project will test the relationships between demographic, behavioural, physical, clinical, imaging and biological variables, with healthy brain function (ie absence of dementia), using Dementias Platform UK (DPUK) and EMIF (European Medical Information Framework) cohorts who have participants aged 90 + years.
The impact of this work is two-fold: a derived 90+ dataset for continued population research and to enhance understanding of the predictors of healthy cognition in super-old age.
