New partnership to study age-related cognitive decline
Ageing increases the likelihood of developing memory loss. Globally, the number of persons aged 80 or over is projected to triple by 2050. In Europe alone, a quarter of the population will be over age 60 by 2025. As a result, the effect of ageing on the brain and cognition is one of the most intensely studied topics through techniques such as magnetic resonance imaging, electroencephalography and positron emission tomography. The EU-funded COGDEC project will focus on knowledge transfer of such state-of-the-art brain imaging methods to Slovenia’s University of Ljubljana via a partnership with the Austrian Medical University of Graz and the Belgian KU Leuven university.
