About the Alzheimer’s Prevention Project funding

This project is entirely supported by donations of time, expertise and money. We are deeply indebted to Catharine Trustram Eve, the Project Director, and to Dr Celeste de Jager, Professor David Smith and Professor Timothy Salthouse for their expertise and generous support. The creation of Cognitive Function Test was underwritten by Mike Metcalfe to whom we are immensely grateful.  We need to raise further funds to help more people take the test and to further research into ways of reducing the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease.

About the Cognitive Function Test, authors and advisors

The Cognitive Function Test (CFT) assesses three critical areas of cognitive processing associated with cognitive decline leading to Alzheimer’s disease. These are episodic memory, processing speed and executive function. This test has been developed in collaboration with Dr Celeste de Jager, Professor Timothy Salthouse and Catharine Trustram Eve. The test has been validated for the age range 50-70. The on-line Cognitive Function Test is the copyright of the Food for the Brain Foundation. The test cannot be used, copied or adapted without the expressed permission of Food for the Brain Foundation.
