Vallecas Project

The Vallecas Project is an ambitious research project developed in Madrid, Spain, with the aim of identifying very early markers of cognitive impairment and dementia. The recruitment phase of the cohort lasted from October 2011 to December 2013. A total of 1,172 individuals of both genders, aged 70-85 years were recruited and evaluated at baseline. Once included in the study, the project conducts an annual follow-up to assess the longitudinal profile of all participants, specifically identifying those that develop mild cognitive impairment and dementia.
