Clinical Research Information:
We are searching for men who are carriers of the Fragile X premutation between the ages of 40 and 69 to participate in a longitudinal UC Davis research project, studying changes in brain and cognition associated with aging. For men who have not yet been tested, FMR1 DNA testing is completed to help determine eligibility for the study. The study involves three 2-day visits over the course of five years, and each visit includes:
Participants will be compensated $200 for each 2-day visit ($100 for completing each day), and we offer travel and lodging reimbursement. Participants are also given a picture of their brain. We can also provide feedback on cognitive strengths and weaknesses.
Please contact us if you or someone you know may be interested in participating, or for more detailed information:
