Neuroimaging of Inflammation in Memory and Other Disorders.
This study aims to understand the role of inflammation in several forms of dementia, memory loss and depression. It also aims to understand the changes in the immune system, from immune cells circulating in the blood.
To achieve this, NIMROD looks at brain changes in dementia, depression and related disorders in several different ways – changes in brain structure and function, psychology and memory, and inflammation. We will also look at the blood, for tell tale signs of inflammation or differences in the immune system.
