We aim to identify risk and resilience factors that impact cognitive health, and to optimize precision in assessment of cognition through consideration of factors (e.g., linguistic, cultural, and educational experiences) that may impact the cognitive assessment process.
We aim to improve precision in harmonization of cognitive data across studies through use of detailed documentation and review procedures to ensure comparability of cognitive data.
The Predictors and Long-Term Trajectory of Poststroke Cognitive Decline study is a completed NIH/NIA-funded study (K23AG040278; principal investigator, Deborah Levine) that aimed to determine the predictors and long-term trajectory of cognitive decline after stroke.
This study will: 1) extend the data collection of Reach Out, our ongoing clinical trial to explore innovative mobile health approaches of measuring cognition and blood pressure among our predominately work-age African American participants; and 2) estimate the prevalence of dementia among hypertensive Emergency Department patients to better understand Emergency Department patients’ needs.
This phase III, open-label, blinded-endpoint assessment, multicenter, randomized, controlled trial will test the effect of treatment of obstructive sleep apnea with CPAP after acute ischemic stroke reduces mortality and cardiovascular events and improves stroke recovery.
The Center to Accelerate Population Research in Alzheimer’s (CAPRA) is focused on science that informs government and healthcare organization actions to address the negative impacts of dementia on health and financial well being of individuals and the population.
This study will determine the relationship of educational attainment, cardiovascular health, and ambient air pollution to the risk for cognitive decline and dementia in a nationally-representative sample of adults in India using new data from the Longitudinal Aging Study in India (LASI).
This study will conduct a follow-up to the 2016 Health and Retirement Study (HRS) Harmonized Cognitive Assessment Protocol (HCAP) sub-study.
This project aims to use door-to-door surveillance in Texas, a non-immigrant, bi-ethnic community, to determine the prevalence and trajectory over time of cognitive impairment and dementia in Mexican Americans and non-Hispanic whites.
The Brain Attack Surveillance in Corpus Christi (BASIC) project is a population-based stroke surveillance project of a non-immigrant community of Mexican Americans and non-Hispanic whites in Nueces County, Texas.
