Cognitive SuperAging: A model to explore resilience and resistance to aging and Alzheimers disease

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

The proposed research will characterize, in an interdisciplinary and longitudinal manner, a cohort of 80+ year-olds who display exceptionally successful cognitive aging and whom we have termed SuperAgers. This proposal will explore the mechanisms of the unique biologic and genetic features associated with SuperAging. The identification of these factors may make it possible to help elderly maintain cognitive strengths and prevent Alzheimer’s disease.
