The University of Tasmania Faculty of Health is now the biggest provider of dementia education in the world, reaching thousands of students in over 100 countries.

Professor of Pathology, James Vickers, said that Tasmania is recognised internationally as a leader in dementia research. Professor Vickers' research has focused on ways to maintain or improve plasticity of the brain.

Solving the public health issue of the 21st century

Dementia is arguably the public health issue of the 21st Century. Ageing is the biggest risk factor in developing dementia and our population is ageing.

Dementia occurs when cells in the outer part of the brain die. This part of the brain is where memories are stored, language held and judgments made. The disease is irreversible and leads to death. No drugs currently exist to stop the progression of dementia.  

The good news is that researchers at the Wicking Dementia Research and Education Centre may have uncovered a way to stop the onset of dementia. Findings from a long-term prospective study show that actively using the brain could be the answer.

'Our greatest strength is the critical mass of complimentary disciplines that interact here in the Wicking Centre. We are conducting research into age related diseases of the brain, trying to find ways to prevent the onset of brain disease,' said Professor Vickers.

'We are also looking at ways to prepare the world for this impending problem through education.'    

'Today dementia is Australia's second biggest killer. In 10-15 years, it is likely to be number one,' said Professor Vickers. 

'The brain is constantly changing. Plasticity is a measure of how malleable a brain is and also how resistant a person may be to neurodegenerative conditions such as dementia. The Centre is investigating whether actively stimulating the brain through complex mental stimulation, would keep the avenues of brain plasticity alive. Our findings to date are very promising.'

The study, The Tasmanian Healthy Brain Project, is the only trial in the world exploring education as an intervention.

'Subjects undertake study at university and have regular psychological assessments to test higher brain functions such as processing speed, reasoning and memory.'

'We are examining whether increasing the amount of study you do, will make you less likely to be at risk of serious ageing-related cognitive decline and dementia. In short, the saying if you don't use it, you lose it seems to be very much the case here.'

'The public health outcome is that we can inform people about the importance of their cognitive lifestyle – or, exercising their brain.'

'Our other goal is to explore whether there are other means of exercising the brain that will ward off dementia, because university study is not accessible to everyone. We are also interested in whether people need to exercise the brain early in life, throughout their life or later in life to get the best results.'  

But it is not just scientific discovery that drives Professor Vickers.

'One of the most satisfying achievements that I have been involved with in the Centre is the development of a free online course in dementia education that has reached over 50,000 people around the world.'

'If people understand what is happening in the brain, it helps them understand the behavioural changes associated with dementia. Carers often don't have any experience of dementia until a family member develops symptoms. The Wicking Centre has shown that the standard of care in our homes, hospital and residential facilities would increase if health professionals had more knowledge about dementia.'

'With the high care needs of dementia sufferers, family members are going to be crucial in caring for dementia suffers as the population ages.'

Professor Vickers holds the Chair of Pathology at the University of Tasmania (since 2003), and is co-Director of the Wicking Dementia Research and Education Centre and Deputy Dean of the Faculty of Health. His research interests include neurodegenerative disease (particularly Alzheimer's disease), traumatic brain injury, structural brain plasticity, ageing-related changes in cognition and health services for dementia. Professor Vickers, in conjunction with Professor Andrew Robinson, established the Wicking Centre in the Faculty of Health in 2008, which now has over 50 staff and 24 honours and RHD students.

Does plasticity drive Alzheimers disease and can sleep help (2017)$94,140
Description
This study seeks to elucidate a potential causal mechanism for Alzheimers disease: that plasticity drives disease pathology, and that sleep compensates for these effects of plasticity in a manner which declines with age. The study will manipulate levels of cortical plasticity and the duration of sleep in a transgenic rodent model, the APP/PS1 mouse, and track the resulting development of pathology.

The Tasmanian Healthy Brain Project: a longitudinal intervention study to reduce the risk of ageing-related cognitive decline and dementia (2016 - 2020)$878,790
Description
It has been estimated that between 30 and 50% of dementia cases may be preventable by addressing modifiable risk factors such as vascular factors and complex mental stimulation. Increasing levels of education at a younger age have been associated with decreased risk of developing dementia in older ages, leading to the suggestion that building cognitive reserve may provide greater resilience to dementia. The Tasmanian Healthy Brain Project (THBP) is a large scale prospective trial that examines whether the real-world intervention of university-level study, as a form of complex mental stimulation, in older adults may provide benefits to cognitive resilience, so as to reduce ageing-related decline in cognitive performance, and reduce the risk of dementia. The initial phase of the THBP (2010-2015) involved identifying genetic interactions that may modify risk of ageing-related cognitive decline and mediate the benefits of engagement in complex mental stimulation. In addition, the THBP has developed constructs to measure prior and current levels of cognitive reserve and performance. The proposed project will realise the long term outcomes of the THBP to determine how a university course-based intervention may affect cognitive capacity through ageing and if it may effectively protect individuals from significant decline and dementia. Furthermore, we will determine how common variations in genes linked to brain plasticity, such as brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) gene, may modify how an individual gains potential benefit from the intervention. In this regard, a genetic profile comprised from BDNF and apolipoprotein E polymorphisms, may also predict those at greatest risk of dementia. Finally, we will investigate whether BDNF protein levels in blood may serve as a biomarker for the effects of the intervention and/or as a potential indicator of relative risk or protection from significant cognitive decline.

Single-cell DNA Methylome Sequencing to detect epigenetic heterogeneity in aged pyramidal neurons (2016)$14,407
Description
Chemical and physical modification of DNA enables phenotypic variation within individuals built from a single genome. Thestudy of epigenetics has the potential to span the spectrum of biology, but has been somewhat limited to some fields (e.g. cancerand aging) or by virtue of the methods currently available to map epigenomes. DNA methylation is a major component of theepigenome and underpins normal development and survival. It is measured by whole genome bisulfite sequencing (WGBS), whichprovides information on the methylation status of DNA loci from the entire pools of cells sampled as a population; thus,knowledge regarding the cell-to-cell variation in epigenetic signatures is severely lacking. Single-cell WGBS experiments are atthe cutting edge of epigenetics research (Smallwood et al., 2014, Nature Methods, Farlik et al., 2015, Cell Reports) and will allowus to ascertain the heterogeneity in DNA methylation patterns from cell to cell. Our study will address a substantial gap in knowledge in the field by generating the first single-cell WGBS data from individual aged neurons. Pyramidal neurons are postmitotic long-lived cells with the ability to accrue epigenetic differences over time, thus, providing an ideal model to assess the heterogeneity in the DNA methylomes of individual cells in healthy aging.

Development of a therapeutic agent for a chemotherapy-induced neuropathy (2015)$21,739
Description
Chemotherapy-induced neuropathy (CIN) is a dose-limiting side effect of chemotherapy treatment, causing irreversible disability in 40% of cancer survivors. CIN results from the loss or damage of neurons during chemotherapy. We have compelling evidence that the protein metallothionein promotes regeneration of peripheral nerves, and examine its therapeutic use in CIN.This project will create new knowledge in the area of chemotherapy induced neuropathy, and establish the suitability of trophic agents as disease-modifying agents for chemotherapy-induced neuropathy.

Selectively vulnerable neurons in Alzheimer's disease: functional and morphological changes in healthy ageing and early Alzheimer's disease (2015 - 2017)$220,000
Description
<p>AD is highly correlated with ageing. Alterations in neuron function are important in age-associated cognitive decline. In AD memory deficits are due to dysfunction, degeneration and death of a vulnerable subpopulation of neurons. Existing knowledge is extremely limited and does not identify why a subset of neurons are selectively vulnerable in AD.</p><p>Hypothesis: Vulnerable neurons in AD exhibit a distinct signature of alterations in healthy aging and early AD.</p><p>A multi-dimensional approach (patch-clamp electrophysiology, morphological analysis, cognitive assessment) will be used to:</p>1: Determine how neuronal activity, morphology and cognition are altered in neuron subpopulations in healthy ageing.<br>2: Examine how neuronal activity and morphology are altered in vulnerable neurons in early AD.<br>3: Identify and characterize alterations in currents underlying age- and AD-associated changes in neuronal activity.<br><p>This proposal will significantly advance our knowledge by producing data essential for understanding how neurons function across healthy ageing and how this is altered in the subpopulation of neurons vulnerable to AD, providing vital knowledge that will be valuable across key areas of neuroscience research. Understanding of the mechanisms underlying the selective vulnerability of this subset of neurons in AD will inform the design of therapeutics aimed at protecting these cells.</p>

The role of FTLD proteins in neurite health, function and dysfunction (2014 - 2016)$90,000
Description
In the last seven years a number of proteins have been identified that are pathologically or genetically associated with Frontotemporal Lobe Degeneration including TDP-43, FUS, C9ORF72 and progranulin. As ubiquitously expressed proteins it has been difficult to assess the role these proteins play in disease, particularly associated with ageing. This project proposes that the disease-associated roles are likely to stem from functions that are specific to neurons and/or glial cells. Accumulating evidence suggests that many of these proteins are involved in neurite outgrowth and cytoskeletal maintenance. This project will use a threefold approach to investigate the role of FTLD proteins in disease. First, it will utilize novel primary cell culture techniques that allow compartmentalization of the neuron to probe axonal and somatodenditic mechanisms. Second, it will utilize an in-vivo intraocular injection model to rapidly examine the effect of mutant and non-mutant proteins on downstream connectivity. Finally, it will investigate neurite pathology in human tissue. This project will provide mechanistic insight into the role of FTLD proteins in disease.

Clinical Redesign of Tasmania's Health and Hospitals System (2013 - 2017)$12,000,000
Description
Effective and embedded clinical redesign is essential to the ongoing sustainability, safety and quality of health care delivery in Tasmania. In a state smaller in population and area than some single Local Hospital Networks in other states, there are significant structural, logistic, allocative and technical challenges to the provision of care in Tasmania. A central, dedicated evidence-based facility, driving redesign projects within a research framework in partnership with the purchaser, providers, clinicians and the community, will position the Tasmanian health system to meet current and future demands. This project seeks to establish a Clinical Redesign Laboratory (CRL) within the new Centre for Health Service Research (CHSR) at the University of Tasmania to provide a statewide approach to supporting healthcare research and redesign that will assist health services to make evidence-based service improvements in a systematic and sustainable way.

Evaluation of a Multidimensional Cognitive Enhancement Training Program for Healthy Older Adults (2009 - 2012)$139,141
Description
Normal ageing is associated with progressive decline in cognitive function. Even modest declines in memory function can negatively impact on the quality of life and independence of older adults. Although it is commonly believed that keeping mentally active can slow or even prevent brain ageing, whether cognitive enhancement programs can moderate cognitive decline is unclear. This project will evaluate the mental-exercise hypothesis via a longitudinal study of the effects of a 10-week multidimensional cognitive enhancement program designed to promote transfer to everyday tasks. How cognitive training affects the structure and function of the ageing brain and the effect of genetic factors on response to the intervention will also be examined.
