Silver Santé Study features on French national TV programme
The Silver Santé Study has been featured in a high-profile French national TV news programme.
The TF1 programme, called ‘Le journal de 20h’, showed the work of the Silver Santé team at Cyceron and included an interview with Project Coordinator Dr Gaël Chételat in which she described the work being carried out by the project.
Dr Chételat said: “It was great to get the opportunity to highlight the work of the Silver Santé Study on such a high-profile television programme.”
“We are looking forward to sharing more about the project and its results once our clinical trials are completed and all the data has been analysed. Our aim, of course, is to learn more about what we can do to safeguard the mental health and wellbeing of the ageing population.”
The show was broadcast on 19th February on TF1.
The neuroimaging team at Cyceron were featured in the TF1 programme ’Le journal de 20h’.
New video showcases Silver Santé Study work and team
An exciting new video has been produced showcasing the Silver Santé Study’s work and research team.
The 3-minute long film – which features Project Coordinator Dr Gaël Chételat, some of our senior researchers, and Sujata Ray of Age UK – highlights the impact of poor mental health in later life and the difference that the Silver Santé Study aims to make to the lives of individuals as well as to Society as a whole.
Charlotte Reid, who managed production of the video on behalf of project partner Minerva Communications, said: “As an EU-funded project, it’s important that we keep EU citizens informed about our work and this short film is an easy and accessible way for people to find out what our project is about and how they personally may benefit from what is learned.”
“As well as posting the video on our website via YouTube, we will also be sharing it on social media so please help us spread the word by ‘liking’ and ‘sharing’ it as much as possible.”
Clinical trials on course for success
Both Silver Santé clinical trials – Age Well and SCD Well – are progressing well and running on schedule.
Age Well, coordinated in Caen, France, is assessing the impact of various mental training techniques on healthy adults aged 65 plus as well as expert meditators. It has just completed its third and final wave of volunteer recruitment.
The SCD Well trial – taking place in the UK, Spain, France and Germany – is assessing the impact of mental training techniques on patients with subjective cognitive decline. Around 140 volunteers have now been recruited to take part in the trial.
In both trials, researchers are also investigating lifestyle factors such as sleep, diet and emotions to assess the role they play in maintaining good mental health and wellbeing as we age.
