The aims of Q SNAPS Cognitive Games study are to learn more about the brain health of midlife and older LGBTQ+ adults, link their trajectories to experiences reported in Q SNAPS survey data, and identify predictors of variation in cognitive functioning among LGBTQ+ midlife and older adults. For this study, we have partnered with The Many Brains Project to collect key measures of cognitive functioning in midlife and later life.
