There is growing evidence that poor regulation of insulin may make it difficult for the brain to function optimally and may contribute to the development of Alzheimer’s

The purpose of the SNIFF study is to find out whether a type of insulin, when administered as a nasal spray, improves memory in adults with a mild memory impairment or Alzheimer’s disease.. SNIFF will test a therapy aimed at using insulin to see if these deficiencies can be corrected. Learn more…

NCA&T

Alzheimer’s disease occurs more often in African Americans than in Caucasians. By studying many people with Alzheimer’s disease, researchers at North Carolina A&T State University and the John P. Hussman Institute for Human Genomics hope to find genes (inherited material) that may cause Alzheimer’s disease in African-Americans. The goals of this research study are to find the genetic causes of Alzheimer’s disease and to improve Alzheimer’s tests and treatments for African-Americans. Learn more…

Exert Study – National Exercise Trial in Adults with Mild Cognitive Impairment

Exercise is highly recommended to maintain physical function and reduce risk of a number of age-related medical conditions like cardiovascular disease and diabetes. We do not yet know if exercise also has positive effects on the brain. This study will examine whether exercise can improve measures of brain health in adults with mild memory impairments who are at increased risk of cognitive decline and therefore, dementia. The trial will recruit older volunteers who have a mild memory problem and who do not routinely exercise. Learn more…
