MHN705 Healthy Brain Ageing

Dementia is a major cause of disability among older people, with 10 million new cases per year, worldwide. Healthy ageing is accompanied by changes that impact cognition and behaviour. Thus, there is a spectrum of declining cognitive function, with normal ageing at one end and diseases such as mild cognitive impairment and then dementia at the severe end. In this course you will address the neurobiological changes in these diseases. Lifestyle factors can protect against dementia risk by up to 50 percent, so you will also learn how lifestyle interventions can prevent onset and progression.
