Left and right brain age differently, which is linked to Alzheimer’s Disease

PhD candidate James Roe and his colleagues in Lifebrain recently published an influential paper in the journal Nature Communications, about how the brain ages. They found that parts of the brain decline faster from age 30, which may prove to be a marker for detecting Alzheimer’s Disease. The Lifebrain team used MRI scans to track changes occurring in the brain over time, in data that often spanned many years of a person’s life. The results were confirmed in no less than 4 Lifebrain sites.
