Neuroscientists share insights into ageing well

Welcome to NeuRAtalks led by Neuroscience Research Australia, an independent, not-for-profit research institute based in Sydney, Australia.

As a leader in brain and nervous system research, our goal is to prevent, treat and cure neurological diseases, disorders and injuries.

NeuRAtalks seminars series provides you with the opportunity to hear from leading researchers in the area of neuroscience research.

In our Ageing Well seminar series, you will learn how to reduce risks around dementia, what to look for when it comes to early onset Alzheimer’s disease, why strength and balance exercises are so important as we age and how to reduce your risk of falls. Hear from our experts about cognitive impairment and dementia, and particularly the relationship of cognitive function to postural stability, falls and fractures, and find out how to keep safe on the roads as you age.

Our Ageing Well seminar series will go live on Thursday, 21 June at 7pm AEST.

New seminars will be released regularly so make sure you register for alerts.
