Healthy people age 20 and older are invited to participate in a study to investigate brain changes that occur in normal aging using psychological assessment and brain scans such as MRI and PET.
-When you call to volunteer for this study a research associate will ask you a series of questions to determine your eligibility.
-You will be paid $40 for participation in this study. The study will take approximately 2-4 hours to complete.
-You will come to the University of California, Berkeley, where you will have a brief medical interview. Following this, you will take a series of tests designed to assess your thinking abilities. These tests use pencil and paper or computers and involve things such as solving puzzles and remembering lists of words.
-We will call you periodically to see if you are interested in participating in other studies in laboratories at UC Berkeley such as fMRI, PET, and sleep studies.
-Subjects who are presently not in good health, who have had any history of neurological or psychiatric problems, or who cannot speak English proficiently should not volunteer for the study.
