We live in a time when science has helped us conquer many diseases and our modern way of life enables us to live longer. But none of this matters when it comes to dementia - our bodies can be sustained - but our brains are not. Today, more elderly people die of dementia than cancer. So, what can we do to stop this? What can science come up with so that we can be one hundred years old, and still be healthy in both body and mind? Meet the researchers that are hard at work, to help your brains future.
