You are invited to participate in a research study of memory and aging.

•Description: You are invited to participate in a research study of memory and aging. You will take a memory test that involves looking at a number of pictures and indicating which are duplicated. You may also be asked to remember a list of words, or to take other brief memory tests. If the results of these tests indicate that you may have some memory concerns, we may offer you the opportunity to participate in more detailed memory studies.

•Purpose: This is a research program to screen for memory problems.  Information we collect about you will be added to information about other people and analyzed to help researchers and clinicians better understand how memory changes with aging. The results of this research study may be presented at scientific or medical meetings or published in scientific journals.  However, personal information or your identity will not be disclosed. Your participation in this research study will take approximately 30 minutes to one hour.
•Participation is Voluntary: If you have read this form and have decided to participate in this project, please understand your participation is voluntary and you have the right to withdraw your consent or discontinue participation at any time without penalty or loss of benefits to which you are otherwise entitled. You have the right to refuse to answer particular questions. Your individual privacy will be maintained in all published and written data resulting from the study.
