The Cognitive Aging Program conducts human research to identify mechanisms associated with age-related cognitive decline and improve memory function in middle-aged and older adults. Robert Krikorian, PhD, is Director of the Cognitive Aging Program.
Many of our studies involve interventions that can be implemented through lifestyle changes such as nutritional supplementation and dietary modification. For example, blueberry supplementation(PDF), grape juice supplementation(PDF), and carbohydrate restriction(PDF) have been shown to improve memory in relatively brief time frames. We have also identified brain regions involved in early age-related decline(PDF). We currently are recruiting men and women with mild
memory decline between the ages of 50 and 65 for a diet modification study. We are also recruiting men and women between the ages of 60-80 with memory decline and Parkinson's disease for a diet modification study.
In addition, we are involved in pharmaceutical clinical trials designed to test the effectiveness of new drugs for Alzheimer's disease and related conditions.
