FENS 2020 | Gene-environment interactions and neurodegeneration

The interaction between genes and lifestyle has been shown to be a crucial factor in diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Huntington’s. Tara Spires-Jones, PhD, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, UK, highlights the key messages from the symposium on how gene-environment interactions modulate brain aging, neurodegeneration and dementia. Prof. Spires-Jones reveals that current data suggest that as many as one-third of dementia cases could be prevented by modifying our lifestyles. This interview was recorded during an online conference call with The Video Journal of Neurology (VJNeurology).
