Study Overview

  • Principal Investigator: Bradford Dickerson, MD
  • Sponsors: Philanthropic Funds
  • Conditions Studied: Cognitively normal (CN) control participants

Purpose of the Study

In this research study we want to learn more about brain aging in healthy adults. Through this study, we will look at cognitive performance, psychosocial variables, and health behaviors to shed light on some of the factors that may help promote resilience to brain aging and resistance to the development of disease-related pathologies.

Study Details

You can participate in this annual study for as long as you are willing. The baseline visit will take approximately 2-3 hours and will take place remotely over zoom. We will ask you to return every 12-months for an annual follow-up visit on zoom as a part of your participation in this research. During the follow-up visits we will do the same study procedures as we did for the baseline study visit.

What to Expect

The following procedures happen annually:

  • A series of brief tasks and exercises of memory, thinking, language, and/or visual processing abilities
  • Completion of questionnaires
