FOOD AND BRAIN TRAINING TO IMPROVE COGNITION IN OLDER ADULTS (MINDSpeed)
The Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay (MIND) diet incorporates the DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diet, which has been shown to lower high blood pressure, a risk factor for Alzheimer's disease. This study, named MINDSpeed, will test whether the diet combined with Brain HQ cognitive brain training exercises improves cognitive performance in older adults. All interventions will be conducted through applications (apps) running on a tablet computer device that will be provided to all participants for the length of study. Participants will select foods using an online shopping format on the provided tablet device. Selected foods will be prepared and delivered to each participant by the study team for 12 weeks.
