Health and social care research helps us learn about why we become ill and what we can do to stay well. It advances our knowledge so that we can find new treatments, change the way we deliver care, prevent illness and improve the environment, health and wellbeing of local populations.
We support research that benefits people who use our services and the communities we serve. We have studies for children and young people, dementia, substance misuse, eating disorders, learning disabilities and mental health.
We aim to make small transient changes in neural activity non-invasively via temporal interference (TI) brain stimulation in brain regions affected at the early stages of the disease. We will measure the changes in the brain’s activity, as well as some of its energy sources, and mental functions.
Individuals aged 50-80 years old with a diagnosis of mild cognitive impairment or (probable) Alzheimer’s Disease Dementia.
What is involved?
• 10 sessions of up to 60 min of non-invasive brain stimulation separated by 24h (no sessions during weekends)
• Measurement sessions before and after the stimulation period, including PET, MRI, EEG, and cognitive tests
