“We have learned the brain processes involved in motor control – for example how a person walks – and cognition – for example how that person solves a problem – share similar locations and networks in the brain… Problems with mobility are connected to lowering function in the mind, and so can be a good indicator of future progression into dementia.”  – Dr. Manuel Montero-Odasso

“The SYNERGIC Trial will combine physical exercises, cognitive training and vitamin D to test how these interventions work together to improve cognition in older adults at risk for dementia. The trial is targeting cognitive decline at the earliest stage, individuals with MCI, where interventions are more likely to have an effect and can be monitored.” – SJHC Annual Report
