By  | 

COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (KBTX) - Texas A&M is looking for people to join in a study on brain health. The study is looking at the link between nutrition and cognitive performance in individuals age 50-75 years.

The study is ongoing and lasts 30 days from beginning to end. Those interested can begin whenever is most convenient for them.

Senior Lecturer, Karen Beathard, says participants can continue with their normal life schedule and diet, researchers only ask that people eat the eggs they provide and visit the Centeq center for testing. A minimum of 11 visits are required but researchers say they are short visits.

Participants take a cognitive test that is used by professional athletes, a nutrition consultation with a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and an activity tracker to keep after the study.
