Ageing Brain Clinic
The Ageing Brain Clinic at the Brain & Mind Research Institute incorporates two major research initiatives - the Parkinson’s Disease Research Clinic, led by Dr Simon Lewis and the Healthy Brain Ageing Clinic, led by Associate Professor Sharon Naismith. The Program comprises a team of neurologists, clinical neuropsychologists, general physicians, psychiatrists, nurses, research assistants and students. All clinicians and researchers bring unique expertise in assessing or managing diseases affecting the brain in later life. The Ageing Brain Clinic aims to provide comprehensive insights into diseases of the brain and mind affecting older people and incorporates multifaceted assessment techniques including brain imaging, neuropsychology, psychiatry, neurology, lifestyle, sleep and genetics. It also conducts trials that seek to determine the efficacy of novel interventions for mood, movement and cognition. The Ageing Brain Clinic has attracted over $2.5 million in grant income since its inception in 2008.
