FINGER is a two-year study that will test whether nutritional guidance, exercise, mental training, and reduction of vascular risk factors (for example control of blood sugar levels in people with diabetes) can prevent cognitive impairment, dementia, and disability in 60-77 year-olds who are at increased risk of dementia.
