THE I-CONECT STUDY

Exploring the Effects of Social Interaction on Memory

Research shows that remaining socially active later in life can have a positive impact on memory and mental function. I-CONECT is exploring how social conversation can help improve memory and may prevent dementia or Alzheimer’s disease in older adults. In this study, participants connect with the research team using senior-friendly technology for fun and engaging conversations in the comfort of their own home. We are currently enrolling volunteers aged 75 and older.
