Older Australian Twins Study

Using elderly twins and their siblings, we hope to elucidate the underlying influences on both successful and unsuccessful ageing. We will explore for particular genes that influence the development of specific changes in the brain decline in cognitive function, as well past lifestyle factors, diet and psychiatric and medical disorders.
