Medical research has greatly contributed to increasing our life expectancy. Unfortunately, many people develop problems with memory, mobility, and strength in the later stages of life. Although these problems are common, they are not necessarily normal. Research suggests that many of these problems may be caused by neurologic conditions that damage different parts of the nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord and other nerve tissue.
The Rush Alzheimer’s Disease Center is strongly committed to discovering the causes of these disabling conditions. By participating in the Memory and Aging Project you join us in our efforts to better understand, treat and hopefully prevent these problems associated with abnormal aging.
The Memory and Aging Project continues to recruit new participants.
