Alzheimer's Research Participation: 5 Things to Know

With the help of research study participants, we are learning about aging, memory and potential new approaches to fighting Alzheimer’s disease. In recent years, researchers have discovered that it is possible that changes in the brain happen 10 to 20 years before the disease’s symptoms appear. By looking for these early brain changes, researchers may be able to better understand Alzheimer’s disease.

Over 50,000 people are currently needed for Alzheimer’s research studies in the United States alone. Flip through the cards below to explore five things to know about Alzheimer’s research study participation (Note: click on "flip" to turn each of the cards over.)
