A brain mapping study led by researchers from CHeBA and QIMR Berghofer has found new evidence of a neural basis for the different behaviours in men and women and that the gender differences in brain networks continue through to old age.
Welcome to the Centre for Healthy Brain Ageing.
CHeBA is an international centre of excellence in multidisciplinary research into the ageing brain and various aspects of cognitive disorders (& dementia). Its work extends from molecular work in the genetics and proteomics laboratories, to tissue culture and cell-related work in the Molecular Biology & Stem Cells Group, to neuronal systems and networks in the Neuroimaging Lab, to clinical, epidemiological and sociological research, to research on ageing health policy using its strong links with teaching hospitals, aged care providers, state and federal governments and its established ageing cohort studies. Its work strongly emphasises implementation, capacity building and translational research.
Our mission is to enhance the evidence base in relation to prevention, early detection, and treatment of age-related disorders, in particular brain diseases, and improve the health care of individuals affected by these diseases.
We welcome collaborations, both on ongoing studies and established datasets within CHeBA as well as new projects.
