Please could you consider taking part in this research project carried out by Oxford University with Alzheimer's Research. It takes about 10 minutes per day, over 30 days.


Thank you.

Bumping - as I think this is really worthwhile!

I would have done it but I don’t have a smart phone.

I have just completed a month of doing these little tests each morning. Quite god fun, although I did begin to worry a bit about my memory!!?

I've just finished too. The story telling worried me! grin

I don't have a smartphone either. Statins have been marvellous for me as my chol.level has been 4 for years which proves that those who have or had high blood-pressure/diabetes aren't always the candidates who will succumb to alzheimers. It's down to LDL's ( bad ) chol. which cause blockages in the arteries------no symptoms.

I've just signed up to it. My cholesterol levels were a bit high I was told last week and as both parents developed dementia I want to reduce the risk if I can. I did have a memory test last week and passed but I think they would have done at my age too!

This isn't designed as a test or to help your memory (though doing puzzles is meant to!) but is for Alzheimer's Research.

Thank you to those who have signed up

I think I hail from another planet as I haven't even got a mobile phone smile I've never really wished for one.

I love playing the Hidden objects games. They keep the mind alert.Also Mahjong which I love.

A couple of days in, I find I'm enjoying this with my first cuppa of the day.
I know it's daft and unnecessary but I would dearly like some feedback!
However, happy so far and plan to keep going.

I'm not sure I'd have wanted feedback!! Might not like it! grin
