Aging comes with certain changes to brain chemistry. A new study that will help researchers understand aging is underway at the University of Louisiana at Monroe. Partnering with Penninton Biomedical Research, the study offers free screenings to adults over 60 at the ULM Institute of Gerontology.
Individuals over the age of 60, who have never suffered a stroke or serious head injury and have no previous diagnosis of dementia, are encouraged to enroll for testing associated with the study.
Individuals cannot currently be taking any medications for memory.
The benefits of enrolling include free annual cognitive testing after the initial screening, and the earliest possible detection of any cognitive difficulties or deficiencies that could potentially indicate dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.
Those in northeast Louisiana who feel this testing may be helpful are urged to participate in these screenings, which are taking place on the ULM campus.
