Falling Walls Foundation
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
Due to longer life expectancy and declining fertility rates, the proportion of the population aged over 60 is growing faster than any other age group. The success of public health policies and socioeconomic development has brought new relevance to neurological diseases that often accompany aging. Most of these ailments, including Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases, cannot yet be prevented or cured. Too little is known about the factors that cause disease and those that sustain healthy brain aging. Monique Breteler - of DZNE in Bonn, the University of Bonn, and Harvard School of Public Health - has been leading international population studies in the causes and preclinical detection of neurodegenerative diseases for over 20 years. She was awarded the 2012 Bengt Winblad Lifetime Achievement Award by the Alzheimer's Association for this research. In this Falling Walls lecture, Breteler describes new health research aimed at optimizing brain function and quality of life throughout the entire life span.
