What is Lifebrain really about?
Our goal is to identify factors and circumstances at different stages of life that may maintain, improve or impair brain health. We view the distinction between being “healthy” or “ill” along an axis where the transition is a gray zone. It is a matter of degree how healthy or sick you are. “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.
The brain is continuously changing throughout life and while there are some common denominators of lifespan changes, individual differences are significant. We think that these differences are important and fascinating to study.
