Cost-Effective Early Detection of Cognitive Decline

The National Institute on Aging (NIA) convened a workshop to examine the current state of the science for cost-effective early detection of cognitive decline using both passive and active approaches and to identify research opportunities in this area. The Directors of the Division of Behavioral and Social Research, John G. Haaga, and the Division of Neuroscience, Eliezer Masliah, noted that such workshops are essential for the NIA to identify gaps, areas of research interest, and promising opportunities that can inform future funding directions for the NIA. Invited speakers included researchers and experts representing academia, nonprofit organizations, and industry. A meeting summary (PDF, 394K) is available.
