The science of ageing
To understand the factors underpinning healthy ageing, current
investigations address cross-cutting themes and
questions. To get research updates on how we examine these themes,
visit the current
investigations page. Current themes are :
Variability: Which cognitive abilities and
individuals have successful life-long trajectories?
Interactivity: How do different cognitive
domains interact with each other and other background factors?
Plasticity: How is good cognitive performance
supported by neural flexibility?
Multi-modality: How do different measures of
brain structure and function inform us about the ageing process?
In order to address research questions, Cam-CAN integrates
across different teams of experts in epidemiology,
neuroimaging, and cognitive sciences. This means that
our current investigations cut across different
cognitive domains, neuroimaging techniques, and issues in both
social and behavioural sciences. To find out more about our research
