1 million people sought for Alzheimer’s study

Researchers are looking for one million participants to take a survey as part of an Alzheimer’s study.

MindCrowd is the first research project to study millions of people by harnessing the power of the Internet. By taking a 10-minute online test, participants can help researchers gather clues into memory and other cognitive functions. It will help researchers better understand how a healthy brain works.

After testing one million people, researchers will pick a group to undergo more testing. The goal is to identify genetic markers linked to learning and memory to get closer to a cure for Alzheimer’s.
