Alterations in cerebral blood flow across the adult lifespan
The aim of this study is to examine the differences in blood flow and cognition between younger and older people. This study will explore changes in blood flow in the brain in people of different ages using a variety of brain imaging techniques.
Studying age differences in blood flow may help researchers to better understand how the brain changes with age, which could lead to greater understanding of age-related cognitive decline (normal decline in memory and thought processes that occurs with aging). This project will examine the effects of aging using MRI and computerised cognitive tests, as well as cardiovascular measures.
You may be eligible to participate in this study if you are:
- Aged between 55-80 years old
- Right handed
- In general good health
Total testing time is 3 hours, and you will be reimbursed for your participation.
