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 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 senior-friendly technology for fun and engaging conversations in the comfort of their own home. 

The study is closed for enrollment, but you can still video-chat with our team.
