 The Brain In Motion II Study is examining the relationship between exercise, cerebral blood flow, and cognition in older adults who are at increased risk of Alzheimer’s Disease and related dementias and the role that exercise might play in the prevention of cognitive decline.  We are looking for 264 individuals to volunteer in an 18-month randomized controlled trial, which includes either a six-month aerobic exercise program, or a six-month stretch and strength program.  All parking expenses, as well as access and supervised training at the Fitness Centre will be covered by the study.  We are looking for:  - Men and women  - Ages 50 to 80  Who have one or more of the following:  - history of hypertension  - history of diabetes mellitus  - obesity  - elevated cholesterol  - past history of coronary artery disease  - a first-degree relative (parent, sibling or child) diagnosed with a dementia like Alzheimer disease  - current smoker  For more information, please contact the study coordinator at 403.210.7315 or by email at bimstudy@ucalgary.ca, or the principal investigator Dr. Marc Poulin at 403.220.8372 or at poulin@ucalgary.ca.
