Improving understanding of brain chemistry in complex conditions and behaviours in forensic mental health.
This is a longitudinal study of adults with Down syndrome that includes bi-annual assessments of cognitive abilities and health. This study explores genetic and environmental factors that influence cognition throughout adulthood, and influence risk for dementia due to Alzheimer’s disease in this population.
Linked with the LonDownS cohort study, this project is exploring how we can use biomarkers in the blood and/or cerebrospinal fluid to better understand and predict the development of Alzheimer’s disease in people with Down syndrome
Another addition to the LonDownS Cohort Study, these projects will explore the use of neuroimaging methods (MRI, PET, EEG and fNIRS) to track changes in brain structure and function related to ageing and Alzheimer’s disease in Down syndrome
