The goal of the Horizon 2020 “Lifebrain” consortium has been to harmonize, enrich, and fully exploit some of the largest longitudinal studies of age effects on brain, cognition, and mental health in Europe.
Our focus has been on the effect, over time, of education, socioeconomic status, lifestyle factors such as sleep, physical activity, and diet on potentially enhancing and protecting brain structure and function. At the closing conference of the Lifebrain Horizon 2020 consortium, Lifebrain scientists will discuss their findings regarding the effect of these factors on cognitive and mental health throughout life, with invited keynote speakers setting the international context.
This conference will gather international speakers from different disciplines including psychology, neurology, neuroimaging, psychiatry, genetics, molecular biology, and medicine.
A healthy brain is essential for enjoying a good and autonomous life. Various social, occupational, lifestyle and other environmental factors can influence brain health. At the conference “Promoting brain health across the lifespan”, scientists will discuss the latest experimental approaches and evidence from two major European research consortia regarding the impact of socioeconomic factors, physical activity, nutrition, and mental training on cognitive function, mental health, and well-being throughout life. These results will also be explored in light of prevention and intervention strategies for brain disorders.
The conference will gather European speakers from different research areas including psychology, neurology, neuroimaging, psychiatry, genetics, molecular biology, and medicine.
