Mental function in type 2 diabetes

24 August 2014

50-80 year old volunteers with type 2 diabetes are needed to investigate the association between blood flow in the brain and cognitive performance.

The University of Newcastle's Clinical Nutrition Research Centre needs adults aged 50-80 years with type 2 diabetes as well as healthy volunteers to participate in this research study.

You will be offered a free test for fasting blood sugar to see if you are eligible. If so, you will perform a series of cognitive tests whilst we measure blood flow
ing to your brain using ultrasound.
