Vision of Lifebrain
Increased knowledge about risk and protective factors influencing brain health will enable better prevention of mental diseases and neurodegenerative disorders in Europe and worldwide. Better brain health means improved cognitive function in childhood, adolescence, and adulthood, and delayed onset of dementia. Better brain health also means reduced need for health care and improved working ability.
Lifebrain integrates data from 6000 European research participants collected in 11 European brain-imaging studies in 7 countries. Lifebrain also aims to collect additional data and biological samples from some participants in the project.
We invite the public to influence the research process by actively engaging patient organizations, policy makers, clinical and research centers.The project will provide the evidence base for prevention and intervention, improving clinical practice and public health policy for brain, cognitive function and mental Health.
