Dementia Research Centre



Our research studies can involve various different kinds of assessment. These often include questionnaires; detailed psychology tests looking at memory, but also often language and other cognitive functions; MRI scanning of the brain; and sometimes other tests such as measurement of eye movements, pupil reactions and muscle activity, or donation of blood, urine or spinal fluid. In addition to memory, we are particularly trying to understand other kinds of complex brain functions that can be affected in dementia; these include aspects of perception, feeling, spatial navigation, emotion and social awareness. The studies have been designed to help us address these aspects.
