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 explored how social conversation can help improve memory and may prevent dementia or Alzheimer’s disease in older adults. In this study, participants connected with the research team using user-friendly technology for fun and engaging conversations in the comfort of their own home. 

The study was funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).  

The study is closed for enrollment, but you can still video-chat with our team via the foundation activities (visit the site below for more information) .


The study is now closed for enrollment. However, you can still participate in the video chat project through our non-profit organization.


If interested, please visit our Foundation website or give us a call.
