We collaborate with several research groups and are part of local, national, and international research networks.

Local collaborations (examples)

The Neurochemical pathophysiology and diagnostics research unit at the Sahlgrenska academy, University of Gothenburg. Our groups collaborate routinely for biochemical analyses of clinical samples of cerebrospinal fuid, as well as in several projects aiming to find new biomarkers for vascular cognitive disorder and dementia.

The Adult Development and Aging (ADA - Gero Group) at the Institute of Psychology, University of Gothenburg. Our groups collaborate in studying physical activity and cognition, as well as with analyses of complex longitudinal relationships.

Stroke- cognition. Several studies have shown that stroke may cause cognitive impairment and dementia symptoms, however, it is unclear if the cognitive symptoms are progressive or stationary. In progressive cases, it is unclear whether the progression is due to an Alzheimer process, the vascular disease in it self, or a combination.

Congestive heart failure. The aim is to investigare whether patients with congestive heart failure develop cognitive symptoms, and if so, how they present, if they lead to disability, what causes them, and how they can be prevented.

In collaboration with the Institute for stress medicine, we are investigating the nature and triggering factors behind cognitive symptoms in patients with stress syndrome.

The EyeDem study aims to investigate if there is a connection between positive biomarkers for Alzheimer’s disease and degenerative eye diseases (macular degeneration, glaucoma, cataract).

National collaborations

Swedish Brain Power (SBP) is a project aimed at eg integrating clinical MCI and dementia research in Gothenburg, Malmö, and Stockholm, and to build a common national research database, as well as to analyse data from the national diagnosis registry for dementia diseases SveDem.

International collaborations

The Leukoaraiosis and Disability in the elderly (LADIS)-study is a european prospective studie of non demented subjects with varying degrees of white matter changes, as measured with magnetic resonance imaging techniques. The main finding so far is that white matter changes contribute to the development of disabilty.

The MedCoast Gothenburg Oslo (GO-MCI)-study is a sister study to the Gothenburg MCI study, focusing on the contribution of white matter changes and vascular factors to the development of Alzheimer’s disease and vascular cognitive disorder.
