General objectives - The project aims to investigate the mechanisms underlying pathological ageing, with a particular focus on cognitive decline due to the main neurodegenerative diseases. The project involves a wide network of researchers, combining a multidisciplinary approach across clinical research and basic neuroscience. 

Overall vision - The specific objectives of the project include the definition of new diagnostic markers and new interventions for the prevention and rehabilitation of cognitive deficits in ageing, also assessing their social impact and beneficial effect on patients’ and families’ life.
