Study for older adults at risk of Alzheimer’s disease looking for volunteers

| Posted by BeTheCure.ca

The Brain In Motion 2 Study is looking at the relationship between exercise, cerebral blood flow, and cognition in older adults who are at increased risk of Alzheimer’s Disease and related dementias. They’re also investigating role exercise might play in the prevention of cognitive decline.

If you’re interested in cognitive health, they’re looking for 264 volunteers for an 18-month randomized controlled trial. This trial includes either a six-month aerobic exercise program, or a six-month stretch and strength program. All parking expenses, as well as access and supervised training at the University of Calgary, Mount Royal University, or 1-2 other community-based facilities will be covered by the study.
