The Neurobiology of Ageing group from the Department of Psychiatry represents the University of Oxford in the Lifebrain Consortium.
The Lifebrain consortium leads the survey in collaboration with national brain councils in Norway, Germany, and Belgium, and the National University of Ostroh Academy (Ukraine). Lifebrain is an EU-funded project led by the University of Oslo. The consortium combines 13 brain research studies from 8 European countries, to explore the impact of genes, environment, and lifestyle on brain health across the lifespan.
The brain is one of the most important organs in the body. Brain diseases account for about one-third of all diseases around the world. However, we still know very little about whether people actively think about the health of their brain. If we knew more, we could potentially develop policy recommendations to help people take care of their brain in a way that fits their daily lives.Dr Enikő Zsoldos, Postdoctoral Researcher, Department of Psychiatry.
The Lifebrain Consortium launched the Global Brain Health Survey in June 2019. The aim of the survey is to learn about people’s views on the brain. This is an anonymous online survey, which takes approximately 15 minutes to complete. Anyone interested and above 18 years of age can participate. People's responses will help provide information about public awareness and interest in the brain, and their willingness to act to maintain brain health.
Please participate in the survey.
