In 1932 almost all children living in Scotland who were born in 1921 sat a test that measured their thinking abilities. This group has worked with researchers at the University of Edinburgh as they age and have revealed unique insights into cognitive aging. Travel through time to learn about the unique history of the Lothian Birth Cohort studies, the people involved and what they can teach us about brain health and ageing.
