The Next Generation Brain Health study is an international research project exploring brain health in young adults aged 18-39 years. Young adults are a neglected group in brain health research even though exposure to many lifestyle-related risk factors for dementia (e.g., depression and alcohol use) begins during this life stage. Our goal is to identify risk and resilience factors for brain health that are most important in young adulthood, so that we can intervene and prevent future dementia.
The Next Generation Brain Health study is led by researchers Dr Francesca Farina, Dr Laura Booi, Dr Sarah Gregory and Katie Wells. The study is supported by the Next Generation Working Group, which comprises early and mid-career researchers based at leading universities in the Europe, North America and Africa.
There are four phases to the Next Generation Brain Health study:
