amnestic Mild Cognitive Impairment study


Have you, a loved one or someone you know, been diagnosed with aMCI?

We’re recruiting participants from the greater Dublin area for our study investigating if we can modify brain networks to improve memory in individuals with amnestic Mild Cognitive Impairment.


What is amnestic Mild Cognitive Impairment?

Between 10-20% of people aged 65+ are estimated to have aMCI.


What is amnestic Mild Cognitive Impairment?

Amnestic Mild Cognitive Impairment causes slight, but noticeable changes in regular memory and thinking, which typically won’t impede usual activities of daily living.


Why is this study investigating aMCI important?

Amnestic Mild Cognitive Impairment is considered a prodrome of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). Not everyone diagnosed with Amnestic Mild Cognitive Impairment goes on to develop AD. However, according to reports by The Alzheimer’s Society and The Alzheimer’s Association, it’s estimated that each year approximately 10-15% of people with aMCI develop dementia (typically, Alzheimer’s Disease).


About this Study

We are recruiting for a clinical trial on amnestic Mild Cognitive Impairment (aMCI) and Alzheimer's disease. The study is supported by Trinity College’s Institute of Neuroscience, The Global Brain Health Institute (GBHI), and The Alzheimer’s Association. Additionally, the Alzheimer's Society of Ireland and TeamUp for Dementia Research are supporting recruitment efforts. Our study is investigating whether we can modify brain networks to improve memory in individuals with aMCI.


Benefits of participating

Contribute to cutting edge research investigating memory. The methods used are non-invasive, non-pharmacological, safe, with few adverse side effects. This study is a no-cost option for participants.
