Clinical Trials & Research

Dementia, Parkinson's disease and many other neurological conditions currently have no cure. Our researchers are working hard to change that but they need your help to succeed.

By taking part in clinical trials and research projects, you can help us better understand the brain, improve treatments for disabling conditions and help your loved ones enjoy better brain health in the future.
