Science, society, and a vision for mind and brain health across the lifespan

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter highlights that neurological disease, aging, trauma, and stress provoke a broad spectrum of brain pathophysiology, disturbing human cognition, emotion, and behavior. It helps the reader to understand a multitude of age-related effects on the brain and individual well-being. These insights can inform countermeasures to advance mind and brain vitality in the briskly growing population of elderly. Coordinated attempts are needed to investigate molecular mechanisms for translation of basic science findings into human neuronal longevity. Team science initiatives can promote collaborative, cross-disciplinary approaches to tackling research on the aging mind and brain. Robust sociotechnical systems are needed to support the complex organizational work required to advance national and global agendas for mind and brain health across the lifespan. Investing more into understanding the healthy aging brain could have dramatic pay-offs.
