The purpose of Honor is to have a group of volunteers who want to participate in future research studies on memory & thinking.    By joining Honor you will learn about new research studies that are seeking volunteers.  You will also receive our newsletter and invitations to educational events. 

All Honor volunteers must have a “study partner” accompany them to their research visit.  Your study partner will be asked questions about your memory and thinking.  They will also be asked about your day to day functioning.  A study partner is someone who has at least 10 hours of contact with you each week.

BIOGEN-FTD

This 1-year observational study is designed to identify the sensitivity of cognitive tests to assess the natural progression of frontotemporal dementia (FTD). Some study visits will occur at Emory (6) and others will be conducted at the participant's home (8). The following procedures will be performed: cognitive assessments, physical exam, blood tests, urinalysis.

NeuroVision

This is a 2-day study of amyloid imaging in the retina. This proof-of-concept study is for people with normal cognition or MCI, AD or other neurodegenerative disease. This is a brief study in which participants will be asked to ingest the spice curcumin for 2 days. Curcumin binds to the protein associated with Alzheimer’s disease, and it is possible to visualize the protein by looking into the eyes. Photographs of the eyes will be after 2 days of ingesting curcumin. The pupils of the eyes will be dilated for this study.
