We recently received a small grant to examine using brain-computer interfaces with people who experience mild Alzheimer’s disease. Information about our work can be found below.

Between 2002 and 2015, our research focused on Alzheimer's disease. You will find links to that work and resources for families on this page.

For more information, please contact Dr. Melanie Fried-Oken.

Every year we give presentations about the work we are doing. We have a diverse team who present on different aspects of the study.

Below are links to articles and other writings from community members who are participating in our research. You will also find links to newsletters featuring our research.
