Research Opportunity: Brain enhancement study (BES): Can optimising biochemical parameters (targets) via participation in a multi-modal lifestyle-based intervention improve cognition in amnestic MCI

Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) is the stage between the cognitive decline of normal aging and the severe reductions observed in dementia, including Alzheimer’s Disease (AD).

In one year, between 10 to 15% of those with MCI develop AD. Over six years this figure increases to approximately 80%.

Of concern, despite decades of research, no drug has been found to effectively prevent the progression of the disease.

Fortunately, emerging evidence indicates that multi-modal, lifestyle based interventions, may at least stabilise cognition.

Therefore the purpose of this study, by researchers from Avondale University, is to evaluate, in 51 participants, the effectiveness of a 6 month, personalised, lifestyle based, multi-modal intervention to stabilise or improve cognition in those with MCI.

Men and women aged 65 – 80 years old who have memory complaints are invited to apply to participate in the trial.

Research Opportunity: Young-onset dementia: pathways to care, gaps, barriers and positives

Researchers from the Department of Psychiatry, University of Melbourne, are currently working on a research project on young-onset dementia (YOD) care called Joint Solutions. It aims to provide data on the gaps and barriers along the pathways of care for YOD, from pre-diagnosis to post-diagnosis.
