Veterans/Volunteers Needed for a Research Study at the Jesse Brown VA/University of Illinois at Chicago

PI: Sara Weisenbach, PhD

This research is being done to better understand and develop easy-to-administer tests that can better predict problems with memory and mood with aging, both of which are common in older veterans/adults. We are looking for people who are experiencing mood changes and people who have not had changes in their mood that are between the ages of 62-78.This study will take place over two years and will involve memory/cognitive measures, questionnaires, and neuroimaging. Mood changes among older adults are thought to be caused by a variety of medical, psychological, and social factors, making it a difficult-to-treat illness. Results will lead to more accurate assessments and better preventive and treatment strategies. Participants will be compensated for their time.
