Welcome to the Centre for Cognitive Ageing and Cognitive Epidemiology (CCACE)

CCACE is a centre of excellence to advance research into how ageing affects cognition (cognitive ageing), and how mental ability in youth affects health and longevity (cognitive epidemiology).

CCACE is funded by the Medical Research Council (MRC), the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), and the University of Edinburgh. You can find out more about CCACE on YouTube, Twitter and Facebook.
