Aims

We aim to elucidate the relation between the very early asymptomatic phase of cognitive decline, Alzheimer’s disease and (cerebro)vascular disorders in order to develop (dietary) preventatives and treatments and improve effective health information campaigns via transferring knowledge to governmental health services.
