The Lab

A team determined to understand the needs of the aging brain

Imaging

Imaging

Different technologies allow us to understand the functioning of the brain which give us a unique window on this complex organ.

Memory tests

Memory tests

Paper or electronic tests allow us to evaluate memory and other brain faculties such as attention, orientation, etc.

Ketone supplements

Ketone supplements

Medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) and ketone salts are two types of supplements that help increase ketones in the blood. In the lab, we evaluate and use quality products to obtain conclusive results.

Brain Fuel

Brain Fuel

The brain is mainly fueled with glucose or, simply, sugar. However, it has been known for several years now that the brain prefers to use ketones, derived from fat, for energy.

As we age the human brain changes and the brain’s ability to use glucose is weakened; a problem that is even more marked in people with Alzheimer’s disease.

Knowing that ketones remain a fuel of choice for the aging brain, our team is investigating various strategies to close the problematic energy gap.

Clinical research for new strategies

Clinical studies or clinical research are evaluating new strategies to identify, prevent, treat or manage disease with the aim of improving people’s health. A clinical study is research in which you freely agree to participate. Nevertheless, without the voluntary participation of people, studies cannot exist.
