Attention, Memory and Aging Study at Stanford
Healthy Older Adult Volunteers Wanted!
WHAT: The Stanford Aging and Cognition Study at Stanford University Department of Psychology is looking for healthy volunteers to participate in a research study on aging and cognition. The study involves brain imaging (MRI), memory testing and evaluation, and analysis of protein biomarkers. The study will consist of an MRI scan, a PET-MRI scan, electroencephalography (EEG), pupillometry (eye-tracking), and a neuropsychological evaluation. Our goal for this research is to understand mechanisms that support memory in aging and how they relate to Alzheimer's disease-relevant biomarkers.
WHERE: All procedures will be performed at Stanford University and medical center.
COMMITMENT: Participation will involve three separate visits. These visits will occur on non-consecutive days, on M-F, and may be spread out over 2-3 months.
WHAT TO EXPECT IF YOU VOLUNTEER FOR THIS STUDY:
Participation will involve three separate visits:
Day 1: Cognitive testing (at Stanford)
Day 2: PET-MRI brain scan (at Stanford)
Day 3: EEG-fMRI brain scan (at Stanford)
ELIGIBILITY: Healthy and between the ages 65-79; right-handed; able to lie flat for an MRI scan and hear without aid; no history of memory loss or neurological illness, no metal implants; normal or corrected-to-normal vision; and no color blindness.
