Neural Correlates of Olfactory Function in Neurodegenerative Disease

Study Status: 
Closed
Study Description: 

We are seeking healthy adults, aged 18 or older, to participate in a research study. The goal of the study is to examine olfactory function (or the sense of smell) in healthy individuals and in individuals with asymptomatic prodromal Alzheimer's disease, clinical Alzheimer's disease, Mild Cognitive Impairment, Dementia with Lewy Bodies, and Frontotemporal Dementia.

 

If you qualify, you will be asked to take a test that measures your ability to identify a group of everyday odors. You will also be asked to undergo an MRI brain scan. While we take pictures of your brain, we will present you with odors and ask you to let you know when you can smell them.
