9 What did we achieve/learn last year?

10 Incredible increase in number of faculty doing IDRP research (because of you)

11 12 th largest study (~1,400), and on way to top 10

12 First manuscripts accepted/submitted First grants obtained First pharmaceutical trial for AD secured Large exercise trial for AD

13 What did we achieve/learn last year? That face naming test That food question thing Changes in cognition year-year

14 That face naming test

15 Total Sample (n = 234) Normal Controls (n = 169) MCI (n = 41) Dementia (n = 24) Correct47.4 + 15.953.1 + 10.840.3 + 14.819.3 + 13.3 Context13.7 + 8.211.8 + 7.518.3 + 8.518.7 + 7.9 Cued15.4 + 8.313.0 + 6.919.0 + 7.926.2 + 6.9

23 What is new this year? More homework Loose clothing Fitness measures Taste tests High tech gait analysis

24 What is new this year? More homework Loose clothing Fitness measures Taste tests High tech gait analysis It is your choice in deciding what measures to do

25 Depression Stress Sleep Body Composition Fitness Balance Lifestyle Nutrition AGE Cognition

26 Measure Changes in: Velocity Cadence Variability w/distraction

32 Depression Stress Sleep Body Composition Fitness Balance Lifestyle Nutrition AGE Cognition A priority is to provide you valuable feedback Next year will have even more feedback !!! We will continue to offer new things….

33 What is our plan for future IDRP efforts? Neuroimaging NIH trials for cognitive decline Pharmaceutical trials for AD Exercise trials More intensive measures of sleep, physical activity, metabolism, and genes Brain bank
