Alzheimer's Disease Prevention Research Study
Researchers from the University of Miami are partnering with healthy individuals to develop better measures of memory and attention for detecting Alzheimer’s Disease
Facts About Our Study
This study hopes to validate new cognitive and functional measures that may help improve Alzheimer's Disease detection
Healthy & Not Cognitively Impaired

Miami, Florida

Ages 60-80 Years Old
Compensation up to $338 is provided
Study Background
Alzheimer's Disease is a type of dementia that affects memory, thinking, and behavior. Older measures of cognition and everyday function could result in errors and provide inaccurate results in early-stage Alzheimer's Disease populations.

Researchers are interested in finding early determinants of Alzheimer’s Disease by testing memory and attention in adults. Our goal is to better detect and prevent Alzheimer’s Disease.
Additional Information
Why is this study being done?
Old methods of determining Alzheimer's Disease in its early stage are not effective. This study hopes to validate new cognitive and functional measures that may overcome technical problems and better measure cognitive function.
Is this study for me?
You may qualify for this study if you meet the following criteria:

Eligibility Criteria:
  • Between 60-85 years old
  • Healthy & Not Cognitively Impaired
  • No metal in body (can complete an MRI)
What will happen if I participate in this study?

The study specifically does not deal with treatment, so it doesn’t involve any drug administration or other forms of treatment.

It does, however, include some cognitive tests, some simple questionnaires, an MRI, and one blood draw to make sure that you’re healthy. We will be compensating you for each visit you have with us, which includes the MRI, and then three visits after that spread over the course of a year.

Will there be compensation paid for being in this research study?
Participants will be compensated up to $338.
Will it cost anything to participate in this study?
There is no cost to participate in this study.
