WP objective:

To analyse profiles of brain, cognitive and mental health and identify biological and environmental factors that explain diversity through the life course.

Key deliverables:

  • Risk and protective factors for cognitive and mental health in broader epidemiological samples

  • Individual pathways and mediator variables in relation to risk for mental health problems and resilience

  • Individual pathways and mediator variables in relation to risk for poor cognitive function and decline versus resilience

  • Gender-specific risk and protective factors

  • Societal factors mitigating genetic/epigenetic risk for neurodegenerative disease and their mediators

  • Lifespan-applicable versus age-specific risk and protective factors

  • Replication, validation and extension of findings in non-European samples
