It’s been more than a year since the start of GameChanger. Over 16,000 people across the UK have played our smartphone tasks to help GameChanger researchers, based at the University of Oxford, learn about how our thinking abilities change as we get older.

The project led by University of Oxford and supported by Alzheimer’s Society has been running for nearly 3 months and the response has been amazing. Using a smartphone app has meant we have been able to gather an incredible amount of information about thinking abilities in people who don’t have dementia over a very short period of time

With over 10,000 of you using the App, we wanted to know how people were doing. More than 1,700 of you got in touch over the last week. We’ve read every single response, and we’re using what you said to make the study even better.

Thanks to all those who are taking part in GameChanger so far. We’ve been blown away by the support we’ve received for the project. We’d like to introduce you to one of the researchers working on GameChanger.

GameChanger provides a unique opportunity for adults around the UK to contribute to research and help scientists understand what ‘typical’ thinking looks like. By understanding what’s typical, we will be better able to spot individuals showing the first signs of dementia.

The GameChanger blog is a great place to find out how our study is progressing. Our plan is to post updates on how recruitment is going, and also some early analyses of study results.
