Early intervention for cognitive decline and dementia: Targeting modifiable risk factors : Psychology Colloquium Other events...
With the increasing ageing population, the number of people living with dementia will quadruple by 2050. Since there are no effective cures for dementia, there is increasing emphasis on targeting modifiable risk factors, which account for 30-50% of the total risk. In this talk, Prof Naismith will present current research and evidence linking modifiable risk factors to dementia, particularly depression, low cognitive activity, physical inactivity and sleep disturbance. This will be followed by an overview and evaluation of the available lifestyle, medical and psychological interventions that hold promise for tackling dementia risk, and the challenges we are yet to overcome.
Speaker(s) Prof Sharon Naismith (The University of Sydney)
