Memory Screening for Adults 60+ 

Researchers at the University of Delaware are conducting clinical trials for adult men and women who believe they are experiencing mild memory loss and thinking difficulties and want to improve their brain function. We are recruiting older adults throughout the United States with memory concerns to participate in a free memory screening to determine if they qualify to participate in one or both of our clinical trials. The memory screen will last approximately 2 hours and will take place online via an easy to use videoconferencing software. 

Promoting Independence with Compensatory Cognitive Rehabilitation 

This clinical trial aims to evaluate the effects of a new behavioral treatment, the Structured External Memory Aid Treatment (SEMAT), for older adults with mild memory loss designed to promote independent living skills by explicitly teaching the use of strategies and tools to compensate for cognitive weaknesses. We are recruiting older adults aged 60-90 years old with mild memory loss to participate in this trial that consists of multiple visits delivered online in a group format.

DementiaBank: A Shared Database of Language and Cognitive Samples 

We are recruiting older adults age 60+ who do not have memory challenges, who are concerned about their memory, and who have a diagnosis of mild cognitive impairment or dementia. The study involves one session during which you will describe pictures, tell stories, and complete tasks of thinking and language. The session will last about 2 hours and will occur online.
