Alzheimer's disease & other dementias

Previous research supports the notion that physical activity plays a role in maintaining brain health and preventing Alzheimers disease. Nevertheless, the type of activity (i.e. intensity of physical activity) that is of greatest benefit to the brain is yet to be established. This project aims to identify the most beneficial exercise intensity, in terms of brain health, measured utilising brain imaging technology.
