If you are a healthy adult and would like to become involved…

Initial Referral Process

The MDRC conducts research studies with individuals with normal memory function. You may be able to participate in our studies if you are:

  • between the ages of 45 and 75
  • a native English speaker
  • free of neurological disorders
  • have at least 10 years of formal education

Participation in Ongoing Research Studies

After an initial assessment, you may be invited to participate in ongoing research projects. By contributing your time and energy as a research participant, you enable us to learn more about how memory operates and the factors that contribute to its failure. A typical research study involves viewing words or pictures and answering some questions about them. You will be compensated for your participation in our research. Confidentiality is maintained at all times.
