Improving Assessment of Subjective Memory Impairment for Detecting Alzheimer's Disease
Duration: 2019 -
Funding: National Institute on Aging
Principal Investigator: Jacqueline Mogle
Partners: Center for Healthy Aging, College of Nursing, Brooklyn College, Oregon State University
This project will examine characteristics of different types of daily memory problems, such as how often they occur -- and if they lead to negative consequences -- in order to determine which characteristics are the best predictors of future cognitive decline.
We will determine:
- whether some characteristics of memory problems are better indicators of future cognitive decline;
- whether the characteristics of memory problems depend on age or sex; and
- if the characteristics of memory problems that predict cognitive decline depend on age or sex.
The ultimate goal of the project is to inform the development of non-invasive Alzheimer’s Disease risk-screening tools and novel intervention targets.
