The purpose of the Brain Health Registry is to promote healthy brain function through the prevention of brain diseases, brain disorders and brain injuries that affect brain function in adults.
Joining the Brain Health Registry is easy and takes less than an hour. However, this will be an ongoing process. If you wish to continue participating in online neuropsychological tests or get information about neurodegenerative diseases, you can remain in touch with our system. To participate, you will also be required to agree to a consent form. Once you give your consent, you will complete some questionnaires. You’ll be asked to give some basic information (date of birth, ethnicity, marital status, etc.) as well as how to contact you. You do not have to answer all the questions. The Brain Health Registry also includes computerized tests of your memory, attention, and how quickly you process new information and organization. You may also be asked to agree to have your medical records included in the Registry or to provide a sample of your saliva for genetic testing. These are optional and voluntary.
Anyone 18 years and older can join the Brain Health Registry.
The Lead Scientific Investigators are Michael W. Weiner, M.D. and Scott Mackin, Ph.D. of University of California at San Francisco (UCSF). Key partners include Luminosity, Cogstate, The Veterans Health Research Institute and UCSF.
