Outcomes

Establishment a Special Interest Group on Neuroinformatics for Aging under the INCF. 

The suggested action plan as below:

1.Publication of a collaboration paper

2. Application development of neuroinformatics in aging; the main tasks will be evaluation of physical/cognitive intervention and life-logging system for large cohort studies, 2) nutrition factors and neuronal network function in older adults. The strategy to implement the resources from neuroinformatics will be explored.

3.Neuroinformatics workflows and datasets for aging; to start initial platform for harmonizing datasets for multi-country cohort studies. Review systems and software to deploy pre-processing and processing workflows, consider the specifications to organize common data elements in datasets and common processing steps in workflows for aging research. 

4. Computer simulation for aging brain; to develop computational models that can classify and explain neurodegeneration and cognitive progression in aging adults.

5. Organize a proposal for funding for multi-country collaboration program (e.g. e-ASIA / JST) and co-funding in each country.
