Article PREVENT Dementia Research Programme

The PREVENT Dementia programme aims to identify the earliest signs of dementia, which may occur in the brain decades before symptoms appear. Participants were recruited in midlife (aged 40 – 59) to identify biological and psychological factors that may increase their risk of dementia in later life. Data available includes, MRI Imaging, cognition measures (COGNITO, 4 Mountains task, Visual short term memory binding task, supermarket trolley task), Lifestyle questionnaires (Diet, brain injury history, sleep, physical activity levels, education, history of traumatic life events).

Clinical data is also available including medical history, biometrics, APOE4 genetic status, GWAS data and samples are available for analysis on request.
