Social engagement is important for the maintenance of physical health and cognitive function, with these outcomes found to be particularly evident in women. However the role of social engagement in age-related cognitive function is not well understood. In this project we will examine the relationship between social and physical activities, and physical and cognitive health from a cross- sectional perspective. The relationship between these variables over time will also be examined.
The key benefits of this project are:
- It will involve direct hands-on participant evaluation and provide clinical skills experience
- The opportunity to work with a rich database with data that spans over 20 years already collected
- The opportunity for publication
This research project is available to PhD, Masters by Research, Honours, Master of Biomedical Science students to join as part of their thesis.
