There is a lot of information out there on how to promote cognitive vitality and protect your aging brain. Our neuroscientists are evaluating the current evidence for and against the options while supporting research to develop effective prevention therapies.

At our site Cognitive Vitality, we present in-depth ratings of strategies to promote cognitive health—from supplements and prescription drugs to diet and lifestyle choices. The ratings are based on available scientific evidence, empowering you to make informed decisions. We also offer an action plan of first steps you can take to promote brain health.

Learning from Prevention

The ADDF uses these ratings to support our research priorities. We work to:

  • Accelerate drug discovery to prevent and treat Alzheimer's and other dementias
  • Advance research to learn how choices and treatments today may prevent cognitive aging and dementia
