Cognitive Aging, Nutrition and Neurogenesis (CANN)
Researchers at Centre for Human Psychopharmacology are investigating if a food combination, containing a fatty acid blend (fish oil capsule) and flavonoids (chocolate 'drops'), improves brain function and memory in individuals with mild memory complaints.
You may be eligible if you:
- are aged over 55 years
- are experiencing problems with your memory
- have not been diagnosed with dementia.
What does participation involve?
Participation in the study will involve attending the Centre for Human Psychopharmacology at Swinburne University in Hawthorn on four separate occasions over a 12-month period. The first of these sessions will take approximately four hours, while the following three visits will take three hours (you will be provided breakfast at each visit). You will need to consume the fish oil capsules and chocolate drops daily for the 12-month period. You will be compensated a total of $160 for completing this study ($40 for each testing session you complete).
There is also an optional part of the study which involves brain imaging, which will involve two extra brain imaging sessions of about two hours each. If you complete the brain imaging component of the study you will be compensated a total of $240 for completing this study (an additional $80 for the two brain imaging sessions).
