The mission of the UK-Alzheimer's Disease Research Center (ADRC) Clinical Core is to improve the health of older adults in Kentucky and beyond through research dedicated to understanding the aging process and age-related brain diseases.
Kentucky Neuroscience Institute Memory Disorders Clinic: UK-ADRC neurologists offer initial evaluations for memory loss of patients with late-life cognitive disorders, e.g., Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia. Following evaluation, patients may be asked to participate in our Sanders-Brown Center on Aging Clinic studies.
Telemedicine Cognitive Clinic is for patients who live in remote areas of Kentucky or surrounding states. The use of a videoconferencing system allows patient and doctor to see and talk with each other as if they were in the same room.
Sanders-Brown Center on Aging Clinic The UK-ADRC Clinical Core is dedicated to the study of normal brain aging and transitions across the spectrum of cognitive impairment (normal/ preclinical Alzheimer's disease/ MCI/ dementia). Our normal brain aging study follows roughly 800 individuals, with and without problems with memory and thinking.
