On 18 April, Alzheimer Europe (AE) organised a joint informative event on the topic of cognitive health, where members of the EU-FINGERS and LETHE Advisory Boards and the eBRAIN-Health Public and Patient Advisory Group were in attendance. Dr Celeste de Jager Loots from Imperial College London, covered key aspects of cognition and healthy brain. She explained what is cognitive function and why it is important. She talked about normal ageing, cognitive decline, memory and dementia risk factors. She also discussed the cognitively stimulating activities and gave some tips to stay cognitively healthy. This talk was followed by a very interactive questions and answers session.
The event was highly appreciated as it is a topic of great interest to all members.
