Description

This project seeks to test relationships among perceptions of memory performance, the development of modifiable risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease, and actual memory decline in a large, diverse group of older adults. Understanding why some older adults with self-identified memory problems are at greater risk for memory decline and who are at greatest risk can contribute to the development of tailored interventions to reduce the risk for memory decline and Alzheimer’s disease.
