The Frontier team is currently recruiting healthy adults, aged 50 years and over, for research aiding the diagnosis and treatment of dementia syndromes including frontotemporal dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Our group examines the cognitive, behavioural, psychological, and brain changes in individuals with dementia and measures their impact on patients and their families. Our group is also studying how changes in dementia differ from those seen in other brain disorders and in healthy ageing, to help improve the diagnosis of dementia.
As part of this research, we require healthy volunteers to act as a comparison group. Participation in this study can involve a number of different tests of memory, language and other thinking abilities. We may also ask to take a blood sample, and an MRI brain scan may be offered. This all takes place at the NeuRA institute (any travelling costs will be reimbursed).
