Overview

Megan is the administrator for the HealthyMinds Registry. This cohort study aims to understand how the functioning of the brain changes as we age. In particular, the study will look at how certain lifestyle factors (such as exercise or education) affect the way our brain ages. This will provide valuable information about the brain and could inform future research to prevent conditions such as dementia. The study is being led by the research team at the University of Exeter and Synexus Clinical Research Limited based in the United States.
