As the focus on age-related diseases increases, it is becoming clearer that the trajectories of brain aging and cognitive decline begin in utero and even pre-conception. At the same time, we are learning more about the factors needed for normal early brain development and resilience to injury. This talk will focus on how normal and pathological brain development in the fetal, neonatal, and childhood periods can help us understand what is required to maintain brain health across the lifespan as adults, maximise cognitive function as we age, and prevent age-related cognitive decline and dementia.
