A Study of Caregiver Connections Via Technology in Dementia
Recruiting
This research is being done to develop a unique matching process for caregivers of persons living with dementia, such as Alzheimer's disease, Lewy body dementia, frontotemporal degeneration, or other dementia syndromes. Dementia caregivers often assume greater caregiving burden than do non-dementia caregivers, and the caregiving duration tends to be longer. Many caregivers do not have the adequate support they need.

tDCS and Cognitive Training for Mild Cognitive Impairment and Alzheimer's Dementia
Recruiting
There are currently no disease-modifying treatments for cognitive and behavioral symptoms associated with early clinical Alzheimer's disease (AD), and only minimally effective symptomatic treatments are available. In this application, we propose a transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) augmented executive functioning training intervention. This intervention will target cognition and brain circuits that are impaired in patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and early AD. The goal i... Read More
