The Cognitive Neurology Group (Professor Peter Nestor) at the Queensland Brain Institute (QBI) conducts research on improving early detection and accurate diagnosis for different types of dementia.

Part of this involves developing better tests of memory, language and thinking abilities. In order to develop new tests and interpret performance of people with dementia, we also need the help of healthy people. This is where we need your help!


  • Be over the age of 50 years.
  • Have English as your first language.
  • Be in reasonably good health with no previous history of significant brain diseases.
  • Be available for three hours (maximum) to attend an appointment at the QBI, UQ (St Lucia).

What's involved

You will be asked to complete a series of pen-and-paper and computerised tests that are designed to assess mental abilities, such as memory, thinking, language and how our eyes scan the world.
