Adult Changes in Thought Study

Data Generated from ACT-Affiliated Research Studies

Data Description

This includes a variety of data types not collected as part of the major data categories in the Adult Changes in Thought (ACT) Study Data Repository. These were added for the explicit purpose of answering a research question funded by an ancillary grant working with the ACT cohort. Examples include the ACT Air Pollution study, various traumatic brain injury projects, and ACT-Eye.
