The Institute for Memory Impairments and Neurological Disorders (UCI MIND) at the University of California, Irvine is internationally recognized for its research accomplishments in disorders of the brain, particularly those that are age-related. UCI MIND is the University’s center for aging and dementia research, with our faculty seeking to understand the causes leading to neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, frontotemporal dementia, Lewy body dementia, and Huntington’s disease. We aim to identify the life-style factors that promote wellness and “successful aging.” For those suffering from age-related memory problems, our goal is to diagnose disease, identify means for effectively treating it, and provide help to families and caregivers.
