Dementia Research Centre


Normative investigations

A vital component of the neuropsychological research undertaken at the Dementia Research Centre is the participation of healthy volunteers. Such individuals provide an important comparison population for many of our longitudinal and experimental group studies. Healthy control subjects are also involved in the standardisation of new diagnostic tests, because it is very difficult to evaluate what level of performance might be indicative of dementia without establishing how difficult individuals without dementia find a given task.
