An invitation to join a clinical trial looking at the impact of intermittent fasting and/or chewing on the production of brain cells, memory and ageing being run at King’s College London.

 

The trial involves a dietary intervention in which eligible participants will be asked to either follow the 5:2 diet or chew gum for 12 weeks. We will ask participants to attend our research unit near Waterloo station where we will take some body measurements, do a computer-based memory task and take a blood sample. We will be investigating any improvements in memory that is associated with a brain region called the hippocampus which is currently the only part in humans which continues to produce new brain cells throughout life.

Falls Friends

Would you like to know more about what causes people to fall and what steps can be taken to prevent falls? Falls Friends sessions are one hour, interactive talks that explain just that.  You may want this information for a family member, a friend, a service user/client or yourself.
