Active Studies

Prospective participants: you may complete more than one study. If you are interested in completing multiple studies, please inform our staff. 

Interested in a study with shorter time requirements? 

Our short-term studies typically involve 2-3 study visits and can be completed in a couple weeks. This is a great way to become familiar with our research.  

MRI Story

fMRI neural correlates of story comprehension to reveal mild cognitive impairment

The MRI Story study explores whether neural brain patterns invoked by story comprehension can reflect cognitive health in older adults aged 65 years or older, with and without mild cognitive impairment, to examine whether these brain patterns can predict changes in cognition.

BIS

Brain Imaging Study

The BIS study aims to determine the impact of  fMRI  scan acquisition parameters on brain imaging to evaluate their reproducibility and discriminative ability of the structural brain connectome in adults aged 65 years or older, who have a diagnosis of mild cognitive impairment.  

Interested in a larger research study? 

Our long-term studies are completed over a longer time period. These studies typically include a cognitive intervention and several follow-up visits. These studies provide a great way for you to contribute to research over a longer period. 

BEEM

 

Effectiveness of a non-invasive, low-intensity brain stimulation approach in addressing emotional regulation

The BEEM study explores the efficacy of tDCS, a non-invasive, low-intensity brain stimulation technique, for addressing emotional and behavioral symptoms in older adults aged 60 years or older, who have noticed changes in their memory or have a diagnosis of mild cognitive impairment.

BREATHE

 

Breathing, relaxation, attention training & health in older adults 

The BREATHE study will examine whether computer-based cognitive training combined with guided breathing biofeedback strengthens the capacity for adaptive learning and neuroplasticity by enhancing the brain's response to cognitive training in adults aged 65 years or older who have a diagnosis of mild cognitive impairment. 

ACT

 

Efficacy and mechanisms of combined aerobic exercise and cognitive training in mild cognitive impairment

 

The ACT study investigates how aerobic exercise (i.e. cycling) and computer-based cognitive training, separately or combined, impact cognition, brain structure and function, and physical fitness in adults aged 65 years or older who have noticed changes in their memory or have a diagnosis of mild cognitive impairment.
