Explaining resistance to dementia
In ageing populations, the adoption of a proper lifestyle could be an optimal choice to prevent cognitive impairment or dementia during a preclinical phase. We lack the knowledge to decide who should implement certain measures and when. Explaining why some persons are resistant to brain pathology or are resilient to cognitive decline, while others are not, is the missing key. The EU-funded DIVERT-AD project will address these questions by analysing genetics, lifestyle, neuropsychology, and brain imaging data from three large population-based cohorts. More specifically, advanced epidemiological methods will help uncover lifestyle factors influencing early signs of brain pathology, as well as cognition and memory before clinical dementia sets in.
