Defining the neural signature of Motor Neuron Disease

A study of neurodegenerative disorders - to better understand the underlying disease mechanisms which will enable an earlier diagnosis and better treatments.

The ForeFront Clinic in the Brain and Mind Centre, University of Sydney, is currently conducting research into neurodegenerative disorders, including motor neurone disease and frontotemporal dementia. The purpose of our research is to understand the underlying disease mechanisms to enable an earlier diagnosis, find better treatment options, and ultimately, contribute to finding a cure for these devastating disorders.

We are currently recruiting healthy elderly controls from the community to receive an MRI scan of the brain (~45min) and complete a brief standardised questionnaire (~15min). 

All assessments are conducted at no cost to the participant. The study will be performed at the Brain and Mind Centre, Camperdown.

Eligibility

You may be eligible to participate in this study if you:

  • Over 45 years of age
  • No previous or current history of neurological disorders or significant medical conditions
