Dementia with Lewy bodies
Researchers at the University of Manchester are using sophisticated chambers to monitor how toxic proteins spread in dementia and the complex relationship between brain cells and their blood supply.
Researchers at the University College London are developing a pilot trial to ensure people with hearing loss and mild cognitive dementia start and continue to use hearing aids. They will follow-up to evaluate its effectiveness in reducing the risk of dementia.
Researchers at the University of East Anglia are exploring the effects of exercise and Mediterranean style diet on dementia risk
Researchers at the University of Manchester are developing a tool that could be used to identify people who would benefit from early preventative measures and develop personalised information to help individuals reduce their risk of dementia.
Researchers at the University of Cambridge are exploring an whether an internet based intervention could encourage healthy lifestyle changes in people aged over 75, who are at a higher risk of developing dementia.
Researchers in Newcastle are using brain scans to better understand what causes the varied symptoms of dementia with Lewy bodies.
