(ii) generate data on the mechanistic pathways by which the MedDiet and exercise may act to influence nutritional status and cognition, and,

(iii) produce evidence-based lifestyle guidelines for prevention of undernutrition and, specifically, the promotion of healthy neurocognitive ageing in older adults.
