How can the behavioural sciences promote brain health?

 The workshop will consider three themes:

  • Identifying what promotes brain health
  • What the public think about brain health
  • Taking action to promote brain health

Workshop activities will bring researchers and practitioners together to set the agenda for applying brain health research in the years ahead. It will be in-person at Heriot-Watt University’s Edinburgh campus, hosted by The Ageing Lab and the Centre for Applied Behavioural Sciences at Heriot-Watt, in partnership with Brain Health Scotland, Alzheimer Scotland and the SDRC.
