  • Summary
    • Mental, cognitive, vision and hearing problems in older adults are amongst the top public health challenges in Europe. They frequently appear together which can seriously decrease the quality of life and mental well-being of those affected. SENSE-Cog aims to address this negative impact and to promote mental well-being by understanding the inter-relationship of sensory impairments and cognitive and mental health function, identifying novel means of screening and detection for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes, and translating this knowledge into clinical applications to improve the mental well-being of EU citizens.
