Project Description

This study is looking at the perceived versus assessed risk of Alzheimer's disease in three different age groups of participants.  The purpose of the study is to understand how people perceive their risk of Alzheimer's disease, to see if age influences this perception of risk, and to understand whether people are accurate in their risk perception.

The study is part of the Dementia Collaborative Research Centre Research Fellowship exploring ways to reduce and prevent Alzheimer's disease and dementia.. The study involves two researchers from the Centre for Research on Ageing, Health and Wellbeing  (CRAHW) at the Australian National University (ANU):

  • Dr Joanna Brooks (Research Fellow, CRAHW)

  • Prof Kaarin Anstey (Director, CRAHW)
