PREVENT dataset now available

We are excited to announce AD Workbench users now have access to the PREVENT dataset! 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), and 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, and APOE4 genetic status. GWAS data and samples are available for analysis on request.

AD Workbench users can learn more about this dataset and request access here. Have you had a chance to take a look?
