Dr Kounti has co-authored 9 books in relation to older people, dementia, cognitive training and care giving topics. Also, Dr Kounti has designed and tested more than 20 different cognitive training programs for older people aiming in dementia prevention and delay. The research findings were impressive.
BRINA is very proud to have Dr Kounti working with us as our dementia lead as she has inspired a whole team of neuroscientists in Europe and together they have completed 20 publications in prestigious scientific journals worldwide. Here you can find some of the most recent ones:
