Framingham Heart Study Brain Aging Program (FHS-BAP)

logo brain againg program

We are seeking to identify the risk factors predictive of Alzheimer’s-related changes in cognition and brain structure. The Framingham Heart Study is a community-based cohort that has been assessed for new diagnoses of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease since 1976. Many traditional and novel potential risk factors have been collected prospectively since the study began in 1948.
