Other Dementias: Research Studies

Cognitive Aging Project

James Herndon, PhD
Yerkes National Primate Research Center

The broad aim of the study is to examine how the aging process differentially affects females of three closely related primate species: humans, chimpanzees, and the rhesus monkey. Women who participate in the study undergo magnetic resonance (MRI) scanning, in addition to annual testing on a battery of tests designed to evaluate memory and other cognitive abilities.  Healthy middle-aged and elderly women, as well as women that have been diagnosed with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) or early Alzheimer’s disease will be enrolled in this research study.

The purpose of Honor is to have a group of volunteers who want to participate in future research studies on memory & thinking.    By joining Honor you will learn about new research studies that are seeking volunteers.  You will also receive our newsletter and invitations to educational events. 

All Honor volunteers must have a “study partner” accompany them to their research visit.  Your study partner will be asked questions about your memory and thinking.  They will also be asked about your day to day functioning.  A study partner is someone who has at least 10 hours of contact with you each week.
