In this study we will examine neuropsychological trajectories over the 16 years for which we have cognitive data and the many associated factors such as menopausal status, psychological status, health status, cognitive performance, APOE e4 status,and so on, to determine risk and protective factors for cognitive decline. The WHAP also has neuroimaging data (structural and functional) for about half of its cohort, which we may beable to explore in connection with cognition in this project.
The project will suit a candidate with interestin neuropsychology. Benefits of this projectinclude the opportunity for publication and that the data set has alreadybeen collected.
