About Us

The Centre for Ageing, Cognition, and Wellbeing in the Faculty of Medicine, Health and Human Sciences at Macquarie University is a collaborative group of multidisciplinary researchers with interest in the normal and abnormal aspects of ageing. This includes research related to understanding and improving wellbeing related to neurodegenerative diseases, mental disorders, and health related conditions in the community and residential aged care. In addition, we are interested in understanding the normal impacts of ageing on cognition, reading, emotion regulation, social connections and workforce participation (retirement). We are also interested in studying how cognitive support systems (e.g. engaging in skilled activities with others) may benefit older adults. We have close connections with researchers across Macquarie University and collaborate broadly with psychology, cognitive science, medicine, audiology, physiotherapy and business, to name a few.
