How will your brain change as you age? Why do some people suffer from cognitive decline or degenerative diseases while other people age happily and healthily?

A major new £5M grant from the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) seeks answers to these questions that, one day, will affect us all. The funding has been awarded to a team from public health, clinical neurosciences and psychology at the University of Cambridge and scientists from the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit who aim to understand how brain ageing in healthy people affects abilities like language and memory. This team will be called the Cambridge Centre for Ageing and Neuroscience (CamCAN).
