Project Details

Project description: Several studies have described the benefit of lifestyle change for healthy ageing and cognitive improvement. Studies investigating lifestyle factors have been limited by cohort sampling bias, cross sectional designs, short follow‚Äźups and small sample sizes. Furthermore the frequency and intensity of lifestyle alteration is still not defined. In this project we examine a 20 year longitudinal dataset to determine the influence of lifestyle factors on cognitive performance and health.

The main opportunities for this project are:

  • An opportunity for publication
  • Hands-on involvement in participant evaluation
  • Work with a large database with over 20 years of lifestyle data

This project would suit a candidate with an interest in neuropsychology.
