Neural Network Connectivity of Financial Capacity in Mild Cognitive Impairment

Updated on 24 January 2022
Accepts healthy volunteers


This study is looking for people over the age of 60 who have 1) normal cognition OR 2) mild cognitive impairment. This research is being done to understand the brain’s structure and function in relation to our ability to perform daily financial skills. Understanding this will help to better identify ways to improve financial and other every-day skills during the aging process. This research study will use magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans of the brain to identify changes to its structure and function.


Study schedule: There will be two visits to the study centers.
-The first study visit will be at the Johns Hopkins Bayview center in Baltimore. It will take about three hours. It    
     will involve a medical exam, cognitive testing, and financial skills testing.
-The second study visit will be at the Kennedy Krieger Institute in Baltimore. It will take about one hour. It
     will involve a brain scan (described below).
-The visits may be scheduled on the same day or up to 2 months apart.
-The study will end after both visits are complete. Study activities may include:
-Having a medical exam.
-Doing cognitive testing and financial skills testing, in the form of interview-style conversations and
     paper-and-pencil questionnaires.
-Having a brain scan (described below). Treatment or experiment details:
-The brain scan is an MRI.  For this, you will lie inside the scanning machine for about 30 minutes while it takes a 3D image of your brain.
-There is no treatment or experiment being tested in this study.
-The study is interested in whether brain scans can show the relationship between cognitive impairment and
      financial skills. Additional details:
-Parking and meal vouchers will be provided for the study visits.
-Participants will receive $50 after completing each visit.
-Transportation cost may be reimbursed.
-Participants will receive a clinical evaluation of their MRI.
-Participants will receive feedback on their cognitive and financial skills testing.
