Dr Kay Deckers, Ph.D. (K.)

I am an Assistant Professor at the Alzheimer Center Limburg and the School for Mental Health and Neuroscience (MHeNs) at Maastricht University.

In my research, I investigate the effects of risk and protective factors for cognitive decline and dementia. Additionally, I am very concerned with preventive strategies for a brain-healthy society. 

Specific research interests:

  • Understanding aetiological complexities of cognitive disorders
  • Neuro-epidemiology
  • Prevention of dementia, promotion of brain health
  • Global mental health
  • Reducing health inequalities
