Healthy Brain Aging Study


The Healthy Brain Aging Study is looking for volunteers for a research study of memory and aging. If you have Alzheimer's disease or related dementia, mild cognitive impairment or even if you are a healthy older adult, please contact us to learn more. Our staff are English-Spanish bilingual. Your participation can help us develop resources for increasing our understanding of these disorders and to provide early detection, effective treatment, and effective prevention. Come join our state-of-art Stanford Alzheimer's Disease Research Center (ADRC), which is part of a nationwide network of ADRCs funded by the National Institute on Aging. We work together to improve diagnosis and care for people with Alzheimer's disease and related brain disorders. With our community partners, we offer respectful, culturally sensitive engagement, and we provide opportunities for education and training. Our ultimate goal is to cure and to prevent these terrible disorders - if not for us and our patients, then for our children.


  • Diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, Lewy body disease, or mild cognitive impairment (any age); or be a healthy older adult (aged 70 years and older). We also enroll healthy volunteers between the ages of 40 and 69 where there is a close family history of Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, or dementia with Lewy bodies.
  • Willing to travel to Stanford 2 to 3 visits the first year and 1 or 2 visits in later years.
  • In reasonably good health without other neurological disorders affecting the brain.
