Our research - Ageing and Degeneration

Our research - Ageing and Degeneration

 

As we progress through life our bodies show signs of ageing, and the brain can too. Sometimes the communication and structure of the brain and nervous system unexpectedly starts deteriorating. Our researchers are interested in understanding how this occurs and how it may be prevented. They are particularly interested in understanding:

  • Healthy Cognition in Ageing
  • Dementias (including Azheimer's Disease)
  • Motor Neurone Disease (ALS)
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s
  • Stroke
  • Trauma
  • Regeneration

Our researchers are busy helping to create information for you about the research areas listed above - these will be made available soon.
