About the NSHD 1946 cohort: a message from Nick Fox

Written by Lauren Pulling, Editor

Nick Fox, Director of the Dementia Research Centre and Professor of Clinical Neurology at University College London (UK), tells us more about the 1946 cohort, a remarkable group of around 5000 individuals who have been followed throughout their lives as part of the National Survey of Health and Development (NSHD).
500 of these individuals are now enrolled on the new Insight 46 neuroscience sub-study, looking into biomarkers for Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias with the hope that we can effectively predict and prevent the disease in the not-so-distant future.
