The Aberdeen Children of the Nineteen Fifties (ACONF) is a well-characterised cohort of healthy, community-dwelling individuals, born in Aberdeen, Scotland (UK) between 1950 and 1956. This rich source of data allows us to investigate early- and mid-life risk factors for poor health in later life. Recently, subgroup of this cohort underwent brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), as well as health and neuropsychological assessments. Here, we aimed to utilise these life-course data to identify risk-factors for increased brain white matter hyperintensity (WMH) burden: a common MRI finding in older adults, associated with cognitive decline, dementia, stroke and death.
