Ongoing Research projects:

A drawing of a brain with SMASH Dementia! next to a colorful hammer over the drawn brain.

SMASH Dementia! A study designed to help better understand how sleep, mood, and arousal symptoms are interconnected in patients with dementia (compared to healthy control participants) as the disease progresses. For more information, please see the SMASH Dementia! tab or CLICK HERE.

Please remember to sign up to eventually donate your brain to science. There is no better donation and we need your help. For more information, speak with your neurologist, contact Dr. Aldridge, or CLICK HERE.

Upcoming research Projects:

We have some treatment trials coming along in the pipeline. Check back here for more details in the future.
