The Neuropsychology Program at Dartmouth is seeking younger (18-55 years of age) and older (55 to 80 years of age) adults, who have no history of psychiatric or neurological illness (e.g., dementia), for a study on cognitive functioning. Eligible participants will complete a psychiatric interview, as well as paper-and-pencil and computerized tests and questionnaires about symptoms and cognitive abilities such as memory and concentration. None of the tests are harmful or painful and they will be done free of charge. There are no direct medical benefits for participating in the study.
The duration of participation is two visits (at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, NH), the first lasting approximately 3 to 4 hours, and the second occurring about 1 month after the initial visit and lasting about 2 hours. Study participants will receive compensation.
The Neuropsychology Program is also seeking the following individuals for other studies on cognitive functioning: (1) adults 55 to 80 years of age who have a diagnosis of mild Alzheimer’s disease or Mild Neurocognitive Disorder (also called Mild Cognitive Impairment); (2) adults 18 to 55 years of age who have had a concussion/mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) or a moderate TBI and who are currently experiencing cognitive problems (e.g., memory, attention/concentration); and (3) adults 18 to 55 years of age who have a diagnosis of ADHD or ADD, and are not currently taking, or are willing to temporarily cease use of, any medication for the disorder. Study participants will receive compensation.
