Aberdeen University researchers to study aging of brain

Aberdeen University researchers are to look into the effects of aging of the brain in different countries.

Aberdeen University has received a £200,000 grant from the Medical Research Council for four pilot studies.

The research will compare the aging of the brain in people from Aberdeen, that have been tracked since childhood, with two similar groups based in India.

Using scans, the team will compare the brains to assess the impact that nutrition, culture and education has on aging.
