Characterising dementia and cognition in ageing

As we grow older our ability to walk, think, see, hear, remember and pay attention to information and interact with others may change.

CADR’s research focuses on the biological factors and addresses issues concerning the health of our brain.  We look at how it impacts on our behaviour and how we think, especially in relation to conditions of the brain such as cognitive impairment and dementia.

We are interested in changes that occur in the brain in the various stages of vascular cognitive impairment ‘or vascular dementia’ as often referred to and how this influences not only a person’s ability to interact socially and with their surroundings but also how this impacts on living with this condition.
