Study on ‘impact of age on brain’ seeks volunteers

A team of investigators from Coimbra University Hospital is seeking volunteers aged between 20-30 and 50-70 to study the impact of aging on the brain. Anyone interested has until the end of this year to get in touch. The study seeks to discover the various processes in the brain which affect the ability to make decisions as age advances. Says a note sent to Lusa, it “could also contribute to more detailed understanding of cognitive decline associated with age, as well as showing mechanisms that lead to the development of degenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s”. Anyone interested can call the research team on 915 234 593, email mjribeiro@fmed.uc.pt or via this site.
