Dementia describes a collection of symptoms that are caused by disorders affecting the brain. It is not one specific disease. Dementia affects thinking, behaviour and the ability to perform everyday tasks. Brain function is affected enough to interfere with the person’s normal social or working life.

Associate Professor Rosie Watson will provide an overview of dementia including clinical concepts, risk factors, diagnostic challenges and potential biomarkers.

No registration is required.
