What is the BioResource Genes and Cognition study?
The aim of this study is to learn more about brain and cognitive function in the general population. The main person overseeing the study is Professor Patrick Chinnery, a Clinical Neurologist involved in research at the University of Cambridge. It is being carried out by the NIHR BioResource team. You have been invited to take part because you are a volunteer with the NIHR BioResource and have agreed to be contacted about medical research.
Participation in this study will involve some online testing called cognitive assessment, which includes tests of memory, understanding, reaction times and problem solving. All these tests will be carried out online, in your own home, and the link to download the assessment can be found below. It will take about half an hour to complete the online cognitive assessments, and we will ask you to do this twice over 3 years.
The current phase of this study is now complete (updated 02/08/2021). Volunteers will be contacted during 2022, to take part in the second phase of this study (repeat testing).
