Neuroimaging clinical study

brain scan

The neuroimaging clinical study (also called Insight 46) is a clinical study with the specific aims of identifying brain changes that accompany healthy ageing and detecting brain changes that might help predict who is at greater risk of developing dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

We are looking for ways to maintain heart health (also known as myocardial fitness, hence the project title MyoFit46).
