The ReMemBr Group (Research into Memory, the Brain and dementia)
Our team includes Neurologists, Psychologists, Researchers and Nurses from both University of Bristol and North Bristol NHS Trust.
We diagnose and treat patients with dementia and also offer clinical research opportunities to people with and without dementia. Our research focuses on early diagnosis of dementia, understanding how memory is stored in the brain and how this can be enhanced and clinical trials of treatment in dementia.
"We run one of the only brain health clinical services in the country. We see people with mild memory problems, offer precision early diagnosis or exclusion of dementia. We also offer evidence based brain health lifestyle advice and access to research which aims to delay the onset of dementia".
What is dementia?
The word ‘dementia’ is used to describe symptoms of memory decline and difficulties with thinking, problem-solving or language that are severe enough to affect daily life.
There are many different causes of dementia. The most common cause is Alzheimer’s disease.
