Participants Needed for Memory Research

Research Study #1. A research study is being conducted at Johns Hopkins University to evaluate the daily use of an FDA approved medication in improving memory. For this study, we are looking for older adults (50 to 85 years old) who are interested in partici- pating in memory research. Participation includes four visits to the Johns Hopkins Hospital where you may undergo memory testing, MRI scans, and be asked to take the study medication twice a day for a maximum of two weeks. The study may provide transportation to and from the hospital if needed, and participants will receive a total of $225 dollars at the end of the four study visits. If you are between the ages of 50 and 85, are able to have an MRI, and believe you are experiencing memory loss (or have been diagnosed with mild cognitive Impairment), you may qualify for this study!
