ABOUT THE LAB

With gradual aging of populations, understanding how to maintain functional ability in elderlies is a priority. The Ageing and Cerebrovascular Group is an interdisciplinary research group focused on the identification of sociodemographic, economic, and clinical predictors of healthy aging in the community and outcomes of elderly people with cerebrovascular diseases from stroke to silent brain small vessel disease. Our main research topics are:

• Sociodemographic, economic, and clinical factors associated with survivorship and functional recovery after stroke in the very old.
• Association between of covert brain small vessel disease with healthy aging and frailty
• Association between sarcopenia and global vascular risk factors with healthy aging and frailty
