Observational Research Studies
Observational research studies are designed to improve our understanding of healthy aging and diseases that cause memory loss and dementia, or the impact of these diseases on individuals, caregivers, and families.
Participants in clinical research can include:
- normal control subjects
- individuals with mild memory problems
- patients diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease or related dementias
Patients at risk for cognitive disorders related to other medical conditions are also participating in studies.
The following observational research studies are underway:
- Alzheimer's Disease Neuroimaging Initiative
- ADRC Memory & Aging Study
- Atherosclerosis in Communities - Neurocognitive Study
- BIOCARD: Predictors of Cognitive Decline Among Normal Individuals
- Early Markers of Alzheimer's Disease in BLSA Participants: Stuctural and Functional Brain Changes
- Imaging Brain Networks with MRI
- Imaging Cerebrovascular Function in the Brain with MRI
- Tool for Managing Behavioral Symptoms of Dementia Patients
