The ADvance II Study is researching the delivery of mild electrical pulses to specific areas of the brain to treat Alzheimer’s. This deep brain stimulation (DBS) will be given in the fornix, a place in the brain that plays a central role in memory.
This study involves phone or video interviews with friends, neighbors and other people who look out for people with mild cognitive impairment or early dementia who don’t have a spouse or nearby children. This study’s goal is to learn how people think about asking for, and giving, help when traditional family caregivers aren’t available.
The Human Spatial Cognition Lab at the University of Arizona (UA) is recruiting adult volunteers to participate in research investigating memory and spatial navigation.
The AHEAD Study is a new trial aiming to prevent Alzheimer’s disease. It is evaluating whether an investigational treatment (BAN2401 (lecanemab)) can lower the amount of amyloid in the brain and how that impacts decline in memory loss due to Alzheimer’s.
Studies have shown that changes caused by Alzheimer’s occur in the brain many years before a person shows symptoms of the disease.
The Alzheimer Prevention Trials Webstudy (APT Webstudy) is an online memory and thinking research tool aiming to accelerate the enrollment for Alzheimer’s clinical trials. This will be done by identifying and tracking individuals who may be at higher risk for developing Alzheimer’s, with the goal of providing members the opportunity to participate in clinical trials aimed at preventing dementia.
