Description of the project
HK SuperAgers represents for the project entitled "Decoding the cognitive trajectory of Hong Kong SuperAgers: a six-year follow-up study".
This project aims to examine the cognitive trajectory of SuperAgers and cognitive reserve-matched normal aging elderly and mild neurocognitive (NCD) patients using a unified two-level assessment framework that examines both inter-individual and intra-individual differences by a set of refined computer-based cognitive tests.
Duration of the project
From 25 June 2020 to 24 June 2021.
- To examine the trajectory of cognitive changes in SuperAgers and normal ageing elderly.
- To investigate the late life contributors to successful cognitive maintenance.
