About the Study:
The Finance, Cognition, and Health in Elders Study (FINCHES) aims to identify factors associated with financial exploitation and well-being among cognitively-intact older adults.
This study is about finance, cognition, and health. Researchers at USC hope to learn if financial wellbeing has an impact on cognitive and health outcomes. Participants in the study have either experienced financial fraud or are being considered as a normal control participant.
What is Involved:
Participants in this study go through two sessions.
Session 1: Behavioral
The researchers will collect demographic, cognitive, affective, health, and decision-making data using pencil-paper and computerized measures. This session will take about 4 hours.
Session 2: MRI Scan
Investigators will collect neuroimaging data through a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine. This will involve lying quietly inside the center of a large magnet. This session will take about 2 hours. The neuroimaging session will occur within about one month of the behavioral session.
