Age Related Cognitive Decline clinical trials at UCSD
2 in progress, 1 open to new patients

  • Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, Health Education and Exercise

    open to eligible people ages 65-84

    The purpose of this research is to examine the effects of four interventions on age-related cognitive decline in healthy older adults. The investigators will examine the effects of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) psychotherapy, multi-component intensity-based aerobic exercise, and their combination, compared to a discussion group.

  • Improvements in Cognitive Skills of Older Adults Using Dynamic Visual Attention Training

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    The proposed SBIR Phase I study tests the feasibility of PATH neurotraining for improving cognitive skills in older adults and, potentially, forestalling or protecting against cognitive decline and dementia. The feasibility of PATH neurotraining will be evaluated by comparing it with another cognitive training program, Brain HQ's Target Tracker, and ascertaining the relative advantage(s) of PATH neurotraining for enhancing cognition in older adults between 55 and 75 years of age whose cognition is either in the age-normative range or in the mild cognitive impairment (MCI) range of standardized psychometric measures. MEG/MRI source imaging will be used on 12 of the PATH group participants to determine whether the behavioral results are verified by improvements in the dorsal, attention, and executive control networks.
