The Nevada Consortium on Dementia Research is a membership group open to Nevada institutions with an interest in developing collaborative research, education and public service programs for people living with dementia. The studies listed in this directory are those vetted by the Consortium. Listing a study in this database is voluntary, as such this may not be a comprehensive list of research studies related to dementia in Nevada. Study information is updated quarterly by researchers and Consortium members.
There are three (3) ways to search for studies in Nevada. Studies are listed by:
- Diagnosis - what diagnosis do you or your loved one have?
- Type of Study - This is the way the study is conducted. It delineates studies that are clinical trials versus prevention versus research.
- Researcher - Are you looking for a specific researcher? Here you can find a listing of Nevada researchers and their studies.

There is little evidence in the literature to support the relationship of cognitive impairment on gait, balance, and falls. Therefore, we aimed to explore this relationship. Specifically, we wish to explore the association of fall history to the miniBESTe ...
Participants are randomly assigned to one of two groups for either no physical therapy or physical therapy (comprehensive program that includes aerobic, strength, gait, and balance training plus patient education) intervention for a period of 6 weeks. Aft ...
The purpose of the proposed study is to determine if BDNF genotype interacts with lifetime self-reported physical activity levels to affect levels of postural instability as determined by measures of gait and balance function, as well as disease severity ...
