Project Description

This project aims to investigate the proportion of older adults who experience stable, continuous deterioration, fluctuating, or improved cognitive functioning as they age and what set these individuals apart. Moreover, it has been shown that brain lesions detected by MRI increase as people age. Thus, another aim of the project is to identify predictors, such as health, cognitive and lifestyle variables that can predict these brain changes.

Three repeated assessments from the same random sample of adults (aged 40-79 in 2001) will allow within-individual changes to be delineated and different patterns of cognitive changes to be demonstrated.
