  • Application Deadline
  • 10 days
    Duration

About

  • During the programme there will be interactive lectures from professional speakers, experts and patients. There will also be a lot of workshops, for example about using an EEG for neuro-imaging. Besides this, there will be a trip to Twente. We will visit the technical faculty where they do a lot of research in innovative, technical medical aspects.
  • Ageing poses an increasing burden on European societies. Currently, treatment of age-related diseases is highly demanding in time and money. The ongoing demographic ageing of the population will require substantial reorganization of the health care budgets and infrastructure of hospitals and nursing homes. Particularly, neurodegenerative diseases resulting in dementia and motor disability urgently require our attention.
  • Each day of the summer school is organized around one specific ageing brain topic, e.g. the developing brain, neuroimaging, brain-influencing factors, neuropsychiatry, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease and medicine in the future. The different aspects will be approached in a broad way: clinical, pathophysiology, technological and social aspects will all be part of the Summer School.
