As we age, our cognitive abilities, coordination, and brain function begin to decline. However, research has shown that cognitive training can help improve brain health, especially for individuals aged 50 to 65 years old. Perth Integrated Health has partnered with Reflexion to conduct a pilot research study aimed at establishing normative data for individuals within this age range, in relation to reaction time, peripheral vision, and object differentiation.
The study aims to investigate how ageing affects cognitive abilities and brain functionality. By participating in this research, individuals within the specified age range can make a significant contribution to improving brain health. This non-invasive research will take only 30 minutes of participants time and will involve using Reflexion as an assessment tool. Participants need to be living in Metropolitan Perth and have no known cognitive or neurological conditions.
The research testing for volunteers will take place from 8th May 2023 to 8th July 2023 at Perth Integrated Health’s Applecross or Balcatta clinics. Participants will automatically be entered into a draw to win a weekend stay for two people at the Hilton Doubletree at Elizabeth Quay.
To participate in the research study, or for more information, please contact lead researchers Jyn or Emma on their following contacts: Jyn at [email protected] or (08) 6245 0637, and Emma at [email protected] or (08) 6187 3693. Alternatively, you can email Research Advisor Ian Wee via [email protected].
At Reflexion, we believe that cognitive training is essential to maintaining and improving brain health. We are proud to partner with Perth Integrated Health to conduct this research study aimed at improving brain health for individuals aged 50 to 65 years old. We hope that this research will shed light on the effects of ageing on cognitive abilities and will pave the way for future research and advancements in the field of brain health.
For those interested in participating, testing will be held at Perth Integrated Health’s Applecross or Balcatta clinics. There is no need to prepare for the test, just arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled timing, and instructions will be given on the day of testing. The study involves doing a total of 3 tests on our touchscreen instrumentation tool, the “Edge”, that target reaction time, peripheral vision, and object differentiation.
We believe that this research will make a significant contribution to the field of brain health and we are excited to see the results of the study. Thank you for your interest in improving brain health with Reflexion and Perth Integrated Health.
