A new site has been launched as part of a collaborative project between the Dementia Research Centre and the Translational Imaging Group (both at UCL). Seeing Dementia offers a unique way for the public to learn about dementia, the diagnostic process and see first-hand the effects of the disease on the brain, whilst contributing to the research outcomes of the project through their participation.
